Nha Trang City in the south-central coastal province of Khanh Hoa is expected to welcome tens of thousands of visitors on the upcoming Independence Day holiday. This year, the Vietnamese Independence Day, September 2, falls on Sunday, so people are allowed to be off from work on September 3 or Monday instead. It means that many labourers will enjoy the three-day break when they do not work on Saturday.
