Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

The best time to visit the central coast of Vietnam is between February and September with sunny and dry weather that is ideal for a relaxing beach vacation. October to December is the rainy season and we would not recommend traveling at that time and January can be slightly cooler in Hoi An.
