The best of Southeast Asia
Vietnam is a traveller’s paradise with its lush mountains, bustling cities, golden sand beaches. glistening views of paddy fields, rich culture, vibrant festivals and ceremonies dating back hundreds of years, and the best food in Southeast Asia, whether that’s fine dining or street markets. There’s a bit of everything from glitzy Ho Chi Minh City to trendy Hanoi.
The country deserves a good week or two of exploring. Popular destinations not to miss include, north to south: Hanoi, the capital city on the banks of the red river; World Heritage Site and natural wonder Ha Long Bay; the historical sites of Da Nang; the golden sand beaches of Nha Trang; the picture perfect sea port of Hoi An; history-rich Hue and Ho Chi Ming City (Saigon), and the stunningly beautiful island of Phu Quoc.
Best time to visit Vietnam
Deciding the best time to visit Vietnam greatly depends upon how far north or south that you begin, as well as other factors such as festivals and holidays. In general, the best time to visit Vietnam is during December through February when temperatures are milder and rain is minimal.
If you intend to see a bit of everything, you need to work around the regional weather differences. Overall, autumn (Sept-Dec) and spring (March and April) are probably the most favourable seasons if you’re planning to cover the whole country.
