1.   What is the weather like in Vietnam?
Hanoi and the north of Vietnam have distinct winter and summer seasons. The mainly dry winter lasts from November to April with average temperatures of 18-20°C. Summer lasts from May to October and is hot and humid with temperatures around 30°C. Hue and Danang, in the centre of the country, have very hot, dry weather from February to August with temperatures reaching the mid 30's Celsius, but can experience some heavy rainfall between September and January. Ho Chi Minh City and the south have a hot, dry season from December till April with average temperatures around 28°C and a warm rainy season from May to November. In the rainy season, most rain comes in short, heavy bursts.
 
2.   When is the best season to travel to Vietnam?
All year round is the good season somewhere!
Vietnam stretches over 2000 km from North to South. The climate differs all year round from one region to another. The North can be chilly during winter months (December to March). North and Central Vietnam can encounter tropical storms and typhoons from October to January. Overall, the north of Vietnam experiences more marked seasons than the rest of the country with two distinct seasons: wet and dry. The South, including
Ho Chi Minh City and the Mekong Delta, benefits from sunshine and warm weather all year round. However, the rainy season lasts from May to November (with showers once or twice in general) and a dry season from December to April. The Central Highlands can be chilly. Nha Trang has warm – sometimes hot - weather all year round, with a rainy season from the end of September until December. Unless you intend to visit friends, relatives or your family, we do not recommend visiting Vietnam during the Lunar New Year, Tet holidays (Vietnamese New Year falls between late January and February). The Tet holiday is the most important period of the year for Vietnamese people who take time off to visit their families in the countryside. All hotels, buses, trains and flights are full, and there is almost no activity in the markets and shops. Some hotels and restaurants are under-staffed and in some cases the quality of the service may suffer. This period of reduced activity may last from a week before and a week after the Tet period. It is also impossible to get a “visa authorization letter” processed during this period.

NOTE: As a reminder, the peak season lasts from October to May. To avoid
disappointment because hotel rooms or domestic flights are fully booked, reserve your
travel arrangements early. Contact us to discuss your travel plans.
 
 3. Clothers
Light, comfortable, easy to launder clothing is recommended. Winter months in Ha Noi and rainy season in the central region can get cold, so a sweater or light jacket will come in handy. Light raincoat or umbrella in the wet season (May to Oct).


Warm clothes for the winter months (Nov to Feb). The mean temperature in Hanoi in January is just 16 degrees Celsius - so cold for Southeast Asia. Bring a winter weight sweater and trousers when traveling in these months, and a jacket too if you feel the cold.


Good walking shoes and sandals that can be easily removed are recommended especially when visiting temples and peoples home. Ensure you have suitable clothing packed for visiting temples and pagodas that you can cover up with shirts and long pants.  No dresses, shorts, singlets, string tops or revealing clothing.
