Best time to visit North Vietnam

The best time to visit North Vietnam is during the spring (March to April) and autumn (September to November) months. During these seasons, the weather is typically mild and comfortable, with less humidity and rainfall compared to the summer months.


In spring, the landscapes burst into life with colorful flowers blooming across the region, creating picturesque scenery. The temperatures are warm but not too hot, making it ideal for outdoor activities such as trekking, hiking, and exploring the countryside.


Similarly, autumn offers pleasant weather with clear skies and cooler temperatures, making it perfect for sightseeing and outdoor adventures. The rice terraces in the northern regions turn golden during this time, providing stunning vistas for travelers.


It's important to note that North Vietnam experiences distinct seasons, so it's best to avoid the summer months (June to August) due to the high temperatures and heavy rainfall, which can disrupt travel plans and outdoor activities. Additionally, winter (December to February) can be cold and foggy, particularly in the mountainous areas, although it can still be a good time to visit for those interested in experiencing Tet, the Vietnamese Lunar New Year celebration.
