Best time to visit Vietnam
Deciding on the best time to visit Vietnam greatly depends on how far north or south you start, as well as other factors like festivals and holidays.
Choosing when to go to Vietnam is important, both for packing purposes and for personal comfort.
August is usually the rainiest month in Hanoi. The best time is spring (from January to March) and autumn (from July to September). But coming to the North in any season will also give you experiences and unique features of that season.
In the wet season, the Central region often appears storms, usually from August to November. the best time to go to the central region is from February to August, the weather is mild.
The weather in the South is hot and mild all year round. June is usually the rainiest month in Ho Chi Minh City. We do not recommend traveling in the rainy season, because you will not have many opportunities to immerse yourself in the busy city life here.
Things to bring when traveling to Vietnam
- Documents required: ID card/ passport
- Clothes/ Personal toiletries
- Cash/ credit card
- Personal belongings
- In particular, we encourage you to have yourself a sim card in Vietnam to facilitate communication, look up maps and use 4G.
