GENERAL ABOUT THE WEATHER OF THE SOUTH OF VIETNAM
The weather in Vietnam can be split by region. Although Vietnam is situated in the tropics, it actually enjoys varying weather conditions depending on the region where you are heading: North, Central, Central Highlands and the South.
Southern Vietnam is generally dry and hot from November to April, and warm and wet between May & October, with the highest rainfall in June, July & August.
Ho Chi Minh City and the Mekong Delta are the highlights in South-Vietnam. This region has a tropical climate with a dry and a wet season. The average temperature is year-round between 25°C and 30°C.
Ho Chi Minh City, which used to be widely known under the name of Saigon, is the largest city in Vietnam. The dry season is regarded as the best time to visit Ho Chi Minh City with relatively high temperature (up to 39oC) but low level of humidity, so it’s still very comfortable.
The weather in Mekong River Delta is relatively stable and suitable for exploring trips at any time during the year. The best time for visiting is from September to November because these are the months of floating season in the delta. During this season, tourists can enjoy unforgettable and exciting experiences such as fishing on traditional boats with the locals and ‘shopping’ on the float markets where you can buy various indigenous goods and even taste some local cuisines.
In summary, the Southern Vietnam welcomes tourists all the year round. Generally, it is a good idea to travel there during the dry season, yet even short rainfall and humidity of the rainy season do not have much negative effect on your trip.
Travelers planning a long tour of Vietnam covering the north to the south should schedule their trip between the months of November and April. This period provides favorable weather that will let you and your company enjoy the sights, people and food of the country. It is the best time to visit Vietnam between these months.
