When to go
The climate in Vietnam varies widely from region to region, from frosts and snow in the mountains of the north, to soaring temperatures of 40°C in the south during the dry season.
There is generally good weather between February and September on the coast and in parts of the central highlands. The south is more likely to be dry and sunny between October and April, whilst the north gets more cloud and rain during this period. From Oct to mid Dec, violent and unpredictable typhoons cam hit central and northern Vietnam.
The Tet holiday takes place in January and February, and is the equivalent of a Christmas and New Year's celebration rolled into one. It is a very busy time with many hotels getting fully booked and roads crowded with traffic, so if you are travelling during this period speak to one of our specialists about where you can escape the crowds.
If you fancy heading up North to visit the hill tribes in Sapa Valley, then aim for March to August time.
It’s now possible to enjoy a beach break in Vietnam at any time of year, thanks to the addition of a superb new property at Con Dao to compliment our existing hideaway property in the stunning Ninh Van Bay.
The best period for diving is between November and May on the south coast.
