There is no bad time to visit Vietnam. In a country more than 1,600 kilometers long, with the weather varying considerably from north to south, from a temperate to a tropical climate, Vietnam is a year-round destination.

March-April is typically the best time to visit the entire country, when days are generally pleasant, temperatures are moderate, and rainfall is light.

For different regions of Vietnam, in addition to March-April, September-November is the best time to visit the country’s northern part, while the weather between February and August usually brings travelers pleasant experience in central Vietnam. Travel in southern Vietnam is good at any time although some might find temperatures unbearable from March to May.

Weather in Vietnam

Northern Vietnam has four distinct seasons. During its winter months between December and February, it may dip down to 5-6 degrees Celsius occasionally, even below zero in mountainous areas. The summer months of June and July are hot, with daytime temperatures reaching 37 degrees Celsius. Drizzling rains and more pleasant temperatures come in fall, from August to November, and spring, from March to April.

Central Vietnam has warm temperatures all year round, with the hottest months coming in the middle of the year, and cooler, drier days prevailing from November to April.

Southern Vietnam has a dry season from November to April and a wet season from May to October.
