Best Time to Visit Vietnam

In general Vietnam is a year-round destination. However, it is a long and thin country with a 1,650 km distance from the northernmost point to the southernmost point. Southern part of Vietnam is closer to the Equator. If you are planning a trip across Vietnam from one end to the other, deciding on when to go is a little bit complicated.

Overall, if you would like to see a little bit of everything and visit the whole country, spring and autumn months are probably the good seasons, March and April being the best ones.

If you are planning to visit Vietnam in the winter, we suggest you to go to the Southern Coast of Vietnam. Mui Ne, Phu Quoc and Ho Chi Minh are great places to visit during winter and enjoy pleasant weather. Northern parts of Vietnam can get a little bit chilly during the winter.

During the summer, South Vietnam experiences rainy days but generally with short bursts during the day. On the other hand, North Vietnam is very hot and humid during the summer months with occasional rains. Summer season is dry in the central Vietnam as well, with blue skies until the mid August with hot and humid weather.
