Frequently Asked Questions
What's the best time to go to Vietnam?
Vietnam welcomes visitors year-round, offering diverse experiences based on your preferences and destinations. Let’s delve into the months to find the perfect time for you to explore this country.
July and August are Vietnam’s busiest months for beach lovers. The central coast enjoys favorable beach weather, but prices for flights and accommodations can increase by up to 50%. It’s best to book in advance and expect crowds at popular resorts. The rest of the country experiences warm and humid weather with occasional heavy rain and typhoons on the coast. This is not an ideal time for visiting the north. In August, Trung Nguyen (Wandering Souls Day) offers large food spreads for spirits.
December to March is the best time for visiting Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. The weather is cooler and drier. It’s also a good time to visit the Mekong Delta and Phu Quoc island. However, be aware of the Tet festival in late January or early February, which leads to increased travel costs. In December, Dalat hosts the Flower Festival; in March, Buon Ma Thuot has a coffee festival. Christmas is significant for the Catholic community in Ho Chi Minh City.
Visit Vietnam from April to June or September to November to avoid crowds. These transition periods offer generally mild weather, with occasional rain. It’s a great time to explore the country without the usual crowds. October to November is ideal for Halong Bay because the weather is pleasant, with less rainfall.
