When to go…
The best time to visit Vietnam, as a whole, is March to April. The months of June to September are the rainy season in the north and the hottest time of the year. December and January are dry and sunny in the south but also hotter than the north. This country can be hard to manage when planning around the rain and heat, especially if touring the entire country. Its worth the effort to plan around the weather because Vietnam gives a whole new meaning to hot, muggy, and wet!
