Best Time To Visit Vietnam

Plan your trip during best season to experience the best of this stunning destination

The best time to visit Vietnam is from February to April and from August to October which constitutes for the spring and the autumn season in Vietnam, respectively. This is the best season to visit Vietnam as the temperature is pleasant and cool with light rainfall. Therefore, making it apt for indulging in sightseeing. Moreover, it is also a time for celebrating festivals like Lim Festival, Hue Festival, Mid-Autumn Festival, Wandering Souls Day, etc., thus, further elevating the experience. In February, the average temperature reaches up to 27°C, 25°C, and 17°C in the southern, central, and northern regions respectively.

Let’s have a look at its weather conditions on a monthly basis.

March - April (21°C-32°C):

The month of March and April are warm and dry in the north, making it a good time to get on an excursion here. However, in Hanoi and around Ha Long Bay, one can experience quite a humid weather along with some drizzles.

With such varied weather, locals can be found wearing thin plastic ponchos, which is a good solution to manage hot weather and rain at the same time.

May - September (24°C to 30°C):

Though, most of the regions of Vietnam experience hot weather all summer long, the farthest corners of the north can still be found chilly. However, the period of May to June can, somehow, be concluded as the best time to visit Vietnam because of the most consistent nice weather all over the country. The northern and southern parts of the Vietnam experience rainy seasons, while the middle portion of the country has hot and dry weather.

The weather of Vietnam in May vary from region to region. Different parts of Vietnam have different weather in May, i.e., the southern regions are usually dry and hot, the central regions receive slight rainfall, while the north part receives maximum rainfall during this time.

October - November (15°C to 21°C):

As during the months of October and November, the region experiences not quite hot weather, nor heavy rainfalls; it can also be called as the best time of the year to visit Vietnam. On an excursion to Hanoi, one can experience dry days perfect for sightseeing. While the rest of the country has dry weather with the temperature hovering around 15-degree Celsius.

December - February (17°C to 22°C):

For someone who prefers temperate weather, the winter season can be a good time to visit Vietnam, as it can often get incredibly hot. Moreover, Vietnamese New Year also gets celebrated during this time of the year.

Though the northwest region starts experiencing the dry season from October lasting up to March, this period is the best time to visit here. However, the weather in the mountains can be chilly. On can also experience snow in Sapa, especially in the months of December and January.

Festivals Celebrated in Vietnam

Tet Nguyen Dan: This is the most important Vietnamese festival wherein the local people come together to celebrate the arrival of the spring season as well as the new year. People pay respect to their ancestors and light candles and incense sticks at temples. At night, the markets are all lit up and extensive fireworks and parties take place.

Perfume Pagoda Festival: This is another famous festival celebrated in Vietnam and thousands of pilgrims travel across the Yen Vi river to get to the sacred caves of Huong Tich Mountain. The festival is celebrated with great pomp and show on the 15th day of the first month of Vietnamese Lunar Calendar.

Lim Festival: This is a lively festival wherein you will be able to witness the true traditions and cultures of Vietnam. During this festival the local people of Vietnam come together, dressed in colorful Vietnamese attires to celebrate this Vietnamese festival with great enthusiasm. People in coir sing folk songs and also play games like wrestling, tug-of-war, and bamboo fighting.

Hung King Temple Festival: Hung King Temple Festival is another important festival celebrated by the local people in Vietnam for 4 days i.e from 8th to 11th of the third lunar month of Vietnamese Lunar Calendar. The festival is celebrated to honor Hung Kings, the founders of Vietnam.

Climate in Vietnam

Summer Season in Vietnam

As mentioned before, Vietnam summer experiences different climatic conditions in the north, central and in the south. The northern mountains and tourist destination areas like Sapa and Halong Bay enjoy a temperate sort of climate in the summer seasons, from April to June. The central part of Vietnam is like a bridge between the climatic differences between north and south. The temperature here does not change much over the year, but the precipitation and humidity levels do. Southern Vietnam, around the Mekong Delta and Ho Chi Minh City areas, is the hottest part of the country. The average Vietnam weather in May in Ho Chi Minh City region is 29°-30°C.

Monsoon Season in Vietnam

Monsoon season in Vietnam is the predominant one. Monsoon winds regulate most of the climatic conditions in the country. The wet southwest monsoons bring rainfall all over the country, except parts of central Vietnam. July and August are the wettest months in the capital Hanoi. The south, especially the Mekong Delta gets heavy rainfall and hot and humid weather in monsoon. Ho Chi Minh City sees some water-logging and the islands down south get rough sea conditions. The only part unaffected by the torrential rains going over everywhere else is the coastline of central Vietnam. Being located on the leeward side of the Truong Son Mountain Range, it sees very less rain compared to the other places. But when the effect of southwest winds passes, and the northeast monsoon comes into play through September to December, this area receives considerable rainfall.

So to point out one particular best month to visit Vietnam, it would be March. With the humidity and chill both perfectly balanced in the weather, the ushering in of spring is just the perfect time to travel to this country.

Winter Season in Vietnam

Winter in Vietnam is most felt in the northern part. Vietnam weather in December can get really chilly in the Sapa region and Mount Fansipan. There is a high percentage of condensation, and it stays misty most of the times, especially in the solitary valleys or over Halong Bay. The early winter months in central Vietnam experiences some rainfall. Around November - December, the northeast monsoons bring rain in Hoi An and Da Nang regions. They also see some typhoons formed over the Pacific. The late autumn season often witnesses flooding in the old cobbled streets of Hoi An, the town being right by the canals. But winter is the best season to visit Vietnam in the southern part. Once the monsoon clouds are gone, and the sky is clear, the Mekong Delta and Ho Chi Minh areas are pleasantly cool for traveling.

    • Trip to Vietnam

      Tour is good, well programmed, loved it. But Asia travel people are not well conversant, example....when one flight was cancelled they don't know what is to be done, they simply mislead people. Hope good sense will prevail, with these limited knowledge the show can be brought under many questions. Ha long trip is simply awesome. Other also not bad. We have enjoyed.

    • Trip to Cambodia

      Hi, I planned a 10 days trip with Kyork Travel agent- Ratana and Travel Triangle agent - Karan , for Vietnam and Cambodia. The planning was seamless, they talked to me to understand my requirements and quickly created an itinerary for me. We went through a couple of round of revisions in those itineraries which were quickly reflected to the shared pdf. The communication was very apt and direct. I got detailed plan and requisite documents list before the travel. At the location as well the services were impeccable. The package that we booked included tour agents and they were very cordial and welcoming. We were really happy with the trip and the way it was planned with us. Thanks Karan and Ratana for your amazing assistance. I would definitely recommend KYork and Travel Triangle.

    • Trip to Vietnam

      The itenieary could have been much better . We were free on some days which could have been covered with other places . Like golden dragon bridge , beaches in the city . So instead of giving such a long free time you guys could have suggested with some other good places . I will definitely suggest you guys but please work on the itenieary more so that person who is going can make a most of it in the trip . Overall had few good experiences and learnt about a new culture.

      We had a very good experience with travel triangle regarding our vacation to Cambodia and Vietnam! A special appreciation to Rakhi and also the agent she suggested Mr Eric from Vietnam. They were available whenever we required, cleared all our doubts then and there with so much of patience and was very systematic. They handled the entire trip very well.

    • Trip to Vietnam

      We had a good trip with travel triangle TT Radhika was very supportive in decision making & helping although she left, we didn’t got such passion & support from her substitute Megha. Somehow we went ahead with TT as Eric frm Asia Authentic was very responsive. We had a good trip , only constructive feedback which we wish to give that our trip was planned little awkward as we wasted time for Visa in Thailand which is of no use as same day we went Vietnam. No one has guided us about that . Hotel at Danang was OK not very good as we expected sea resort . Taxi we got twice poor having uncomfortable seats . We wud have preferred a little descent ones to take rest in transit . Cruise at Halong Bay was spelendid Specially Kayaking & scenic beauty. Bana Hill Trip was also good Hotel Siam Bayshore was good.

      We have enjoyed the trip very well. Hannah has coordinated everything perfectly. All the drivers and guide who all assigned to us did their duties very well and were on time. A minor disappointment is we are not satisfied with the Hotel infrastructure at Tu linh legend hotel. But the staffs in that hotel were very professional and helpful. Bana hills and Halong bay Cruise have made us excited.

No proper advice has been provided to us.At the time of payment ,megha's behaviour was not proper.i have never come across this type of harrassment done by the travel agents.places were awesome...some of the days we have been troubled and travel agent has not come to our any help....Looking into this matter,can we eligible for any refund for this trip.please ensure with it.

    FAQ's of Vietnam

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

     

    No, there are no direct flights from India to Vietnam. If you are traveling to Vietnam from India then you will most likely will have layovers in Thailand, Malaysia, or Singapore. 

    Vietnam in June receives heavy downpour at the southern edge since it falls under the rainy season. On the other hand, the central part remains sunny and dry. Therefore, it is recommended that if you are planning to visit Vietnam during June, you make your visit to the central region.

    The best month to visit Vietnam is from February to April and August to October. These months constitute the spring season during which not only is the weather pleasant but also the rainfall is scarce.  

    The best time to go to Vietnam beaches would be spring and autumn season i.e. February to April and August to October respectively.

    The weather in Vietnam is divided into two, first southwest monsoon which lasts from April to September and second northeast monsoon which lasts from October to March or early April.

     

    Yes, there is. The highest peak of Vietnam is Mount Fansipan (3143 meters) which is a popular mountain climbing spot in Vietnam.
