VN Holiday. Offices closed throughout Vietnam
Reunification Day, or Liberation Day, is a public holiday in Vietnam that marks the occasion when National Liberation Front and North Vietnamese Army troops captured Saigon (now Ho Chi Minh City) on April 30, 1975. This signalled the end of the Vietnam War, or “Resistance War Against America.” It was the start of the transition period toward unification, which occurred July 2, 1976.
