As National Day falls on a Sunday, the public holiday is carried to the next working day, which means that Norman Global Logistics in Vietnam will be closed on Monday 3rd September.

National Day (Ngày Quốc Khánh) is a national holiday in Vietnam observed every 2nd September, commemorating President Hồ Chí Minh reading the Declarations of independence of Vietnam at Ba Đình Square in Hanoi on September 2, 1945.

The Vietnamese celebrate National Day by displaying their national flag, putting up elaborate decorations and erecting huge posters depicting Ho Chi Minh making his famous speech.

While Hanoi and other major cities host speeches, parades and fireworks displays, they may actually be relatively quiet during National Day and the public holiday on Monday, because much of the city’s population will head to the coast to relax.
