    Best Time to Visit Vietnam

    General

    Vietnam welcomes visitors all year round, offering diverse experiences based on your travel preferences. Whether you desire ideal beach weather, cultural festivities, fewer tourists, or a blend of these factors, selecting the perfect time for your trip is crucial.

    High season: July & August

    Best time to go for beach lovers

    July and August are the busiest months in Vietnam, especially along the coast, leading to a 50% increase in prices. It is essential to book the trip well ahead of time. The weather throughout the country, except the far north, is hot, humid, and occasionally interrupted by impressive summer monsoon downpours.

    Shoulder season: December-March

    Best time to go for visiting Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City

    Vietnam’s winter is drier than the summer, but it also brings colder temperatures. The northern regions can be chilly, while the far south enjoys clear skies and sunny days.

    For those who prefer big cities, the shoulder season is an enjoyable time to visit Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, offering reliable weather and pleasant temperatures. However, during the Tet festival (late January or early February), the entire country experiences increased mobility and rising accommodation prices.

    Low season: April-June and September-November

    Best time to go for exploring the whole country

    Vietnam’s low season occurs during the transitional periods from winter to summer and summer to winter. This time offers varying weather, with the possibility of splendid sunny days and occasional rain. It’s an excellent opportunity for travelers seeking to avoid tourist crowds or those planning to tour the entire country.

    Top tips for visiting Vietnam

    Be open-minded – some people still associate Vietnam with the war. Many first-time visitors are very surprised at how much the country has moved on in the 43 years since the war finished. A lot of them also expect resentment and grudges to be held, but nothing could be further from the truth. The past is the past, and here in Vietnam, everyone is welcome.

    Check your vaccinations are up to date – sounds obvious, but make sure you’ve had all the up to date jabs for travelling here.

    Smile! – Vietnamese people are lovely, but might not always stop and help confused looking foreigners, like in some other Asian countries. So if you do ask a local a question, do it with a smile, you’ll have your question answered and the smile returned.
