Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

The central region of Vietnam has a tropical climate, particularly around Hué and is divided into two distinguished seasons. The dry season (from March to August) has a maximum temperature of 40°C and the colder, rainy season (August to January) has temperatures that can go down to 19°C.

From March to August will be the best time to visit Hue, especially between March and April when the temperature is more pleasant, though rainfalls are still likely. Hue sees fog and rain quite frequently, even when the weather across the Hai Van Pass in nearby Danang is sunny. During the rainy season, between September and January, rain is more frequent and can be heavy.

There are several festivals in Hue and worth taking note in planning your travel. Each year, during the seventh month of the lunar year, Hue celebrates the Duong No ceremony, Vietnamese all souls’ days, and Hon Chen Temple Festival. In addition, every two years, there is a special Hue Festival which lasts for two weeks in June.

Itinerary

Explore the highlights of three countries in just 10 days, with this short but sweet trip around what we consider to be the best locations in Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam. Staying in great value hotels and making the most of each day with exciting guided tours, this vacation is perfect for first time visitors to the area.

  1. Days 1-4: Luang Prabang

    Your adventure begins in the sleepy town of Luang Prabang, nestled in a river valley amongst the verdant mountains of Laos. Spend three blissful nights here exploring the cobbled backstreets and colorful markets of this cultural capital. With your passionate local guide, tour around the gold mosaicked halls of the Royal Palace, discover the diversity of Lao culture in the Ethnology Museum, and peer inside the gloomy atrium of beautiful Wat Xieng Thong. Finish your day with a scramble to the summit of Mount Phousi to watch the sun set behind the mountains or sit quietly in a temple courtyard and allow the sound of monks chanting to drift around you. We have also included an exciting day trip out into the beautiful Laotian countryside to visit the famous Kuang Si Waterfalls. Walk up to the main cascade, passing many levels of cool, blue pools, perfect for a dip. Marvel at the main fall, or perhaps hike up to the top to take in the view from above. Before you leave, stop in at the sun bear sanctuary to see these native bears that have been rescued from loggers or the pet trade.

    Accommodation: Avani+ Luang Prabang (3 nights)

  2. Days 4-7: Siem Reap & Angkor Wat

    A short flight takes you over the border to Siem Reap in the north of Cambodia. This lively town is the gateway to the world-famous Angkor Archaeological Park, home to the iconic Angkor Wat. Your stay here is for three blissful nights, filling your days with exciting temple tours. With your guide, venture deep into the lesser known areas of the complex to discover crumbling temples almost entirely engulfed by the forest. Our expert guides know the quietest time at each location and will be able to effortlessly steer you away from the crowds, stopping for a delicious breakfast amongst the ruins. In the afternoon you can visit the more popular abandoned city of Angkor Thom, and the mysterious faces of Bayon before heading back to your hotel for a well-earned rest. Of course, you can’t visit Cambodia without wondering at the monumental Angkor Wat. We whole-heartedly recommend an early morning tour, so you can watch the sun rise over the temple, bleeding color into the tranquil reflecting pools that surround it. This is a very popular experience, but your guide will be able to ensure you get the best view.

    Accommodation: Heritage Suites Hotel (3 nights)

  3. Days 7-9: Hoi An

    Another short flight takes you into Vietnam, to the UNESCO town of Hoi An. Spend your last few days in Indochina exploring this authentic and culturally rich little port town, home to streets flanked by colorful paper lanterns and the famous tailor shops which can create bespoke new garments in just a day or two. Two nights in the heart of the town will be perfect for exploring the many boutiques and riverside restaurants, and your guide will be able to show you some of the important historical buildings in the Old Town and show you around a typical morning market where you can pick up some souvenirs, tasty local snacks or fabric.

    Accommodation: Anantara Hoi An Resort (2 nights)

  4. Days 9-11: Danang

    Your last two nights can be spent with a well earned relax on the beautiful China Beach, just a few minutes away from Hoi An. Indulge in spa treatments or dinner on the sand at one of the luxurious beach resorts here.

    Accommodation: Fusion Maia Da Nang Resort (2 nights)
