WHEN TO GO TO VIETNAM

Due to its long and thin shape, the country can be split into three distinct regions: the North, the Centre and the South. Each has its own attractions, cuisine, regional accent and weather patterns. As such, there is no bad time of year to have a luxury holiday in Vietnam – when one area is raining, another is at its best.

The North has the coolest climate of Vietnam. The months of November to February can be as low as 5- 10 degrees Celsius in Hanoi, with the highlands of Sapa reaching even lower temperatures. A pleasant spring arrives in March and the North starts to become hotter and wetter from June onwards.

The summer months of July to September can be very humid; Hanoi and Halong Bay can be affected by typhoons which bring rain at this time. In contrast, Central Vietnam’s rainy season lasts during the winter months of October to January. September to November can also see typhoons but the rest of the year is usually sunny and clear, with temperatures reaching up to 30 degrees Celsius or more at the beaches of Hoi An and Nha Trang.

Southern Vietnam’s weather follows a more typical tropical pattern. The weather starts to improve around November and increases in heat steadily until April. May and June are humid with frequent thunderstorms and temperatures reaching almost 40 degrees Celsius. The rain usually begins in July and lasts until the end of September. During July and August, the rain is characterised by short heavy showers, usually in the late afternoon only.
