Vietnam spans several climatic zones, so resulting in substantial weather condition variations between the north and the south. The average temperatures year round range from 20 to 35 degrees Celsius so there is no particularly good or bad time to visit Vietnam.
In southern Vietnam tropical conditions prevail, and there are two seasons – the wet season lasts from May to November and the dry season from December to April (next year). The wet is characterized by high humidity levels and a refreshing afternoon downpour. The humidity in the south during the months of June and July ranges between 75% and 85%. And the hottest months are from March to May.
Central Vietnam is usually dry from May to October and wet from December to February. In October and November may experience unstable weather conditions and flooding.
Northern Vietnam also experiences two seasons though conditions can change dramatically throughout the day. Winter months from November to April are usually cold and humid. December and January can be particularly cool with temperatures as low as 8 degrees Celsius. Temperatures can drop to zero degrees Celsius in Sapa (in the highlands near the Chinese border) in winter. The Summer, from May to October, can be quite hot and wet with regular downpours and occasional typhoons, and the hottest months are July and August in Hanoi.
