when to go to vietnam

Vietnam extends about 1,025 miles from north to south, and therefore the weather varies considerably from a temperate climate to a more tropical climate. With that in mind there is always somewhere to visit, although if you want to tour the length of the country spring time (March/April) is typically the best season to travel here. Overall the temperatures are more moderate and rainfall is lower, although some may find the temperatures in the south a little too hot.


South Vietnam can be visited all year round as it is always warm and pleasant. Given its tropical location this region experiences dry and wet seasons, with the dry season running from December to May and the wet season from June through to November. The wet season doesn’t impede travel as rain usually appears in short bursts in the afternoon, and in the Mekong Delta this can often be the best time to visit to see the rice fields turn a vibrant emerald-green.


The best time to experience pleasant weather in Central Vietnam is between February and August, with sunny days being the norm in July and August.

Between August and November you run the risk of heavy winds and rain in cities like Hoi An, with the wet season ending by February.


Spring and autumn are the best times to visit northern destinations such as Hanoi and Sapa, as the days are generally warm and sunny. They don’t have the humidity of the summer months or the freezing nights of the winter months.
