WEATHER IN Vietnam
February to April. Spring in Vietnam is a perfect season. Sail to pristine beaches and islands of the south, such as the Con Dao Archipelago and Phu Quoc Island, or to visit Dalat’s crystal blue-sky lakes and waterfalls. It is very likely that you won’t have showers during this period, although humidity begins to set in around March. In the Northern mountains of Vietnam, the rice is planted in late Spring, and the rice terraces are iridescent green.
May to August. It is the time of celebrating religious events throughout the country and the time of the monsoon. If you want to avoid the wet weather, head to the northern hills, which get sporadic rain but are lovely and verdant at this time of year. August is a great time to visit Vietnam and attend the Ghost Festival when lit lanterns and boats are released on bodies of water to help the spirits of deceased loved ones find their way home.
September to November. Northern Vietnam is warm and sunny during this time of the year. The temperatures are most pleasant in Hanoi and Halong Bay. Autumn in Vietnam is the best season to see all nature’s splendor hiking through mountainous Sapa in the Far North. Visiting the south of Vietnam is a perfect choice as rain has mostly dried up and temperatures are significantly cooler , making for great days at destinations like Ho Chi Minh City, along with the Mekong Delta, and island destinations.
December to January. This is a great time to visit northern and southern Vietnam. Winter is the the most important holiday of the year, time to celebrate the Vietnamese New Year or Tet. Families gather across the country to celebrate with musical performances, fireworks and dragon dances. It is a perfect time everywhere, even the central coast begins to see less rainfall during the later winter months.
