When to go to Vietnam
The weather in Vietnam is region dependent, from cold temperatures in the North throughout the winter to hot and humid temperatures in the South virtually year-round. This country has two monsoon seasons, between April and October right across the country except for the mountains and between October and March in the northeast. Most of the Vietnam holidays guides suggest that a great time to visit is November to February (if planning to visit the South) or April, May and October if planning to tour the entire length of the country.
A valid Vietnam visa and passport is a requirement for all tourists visiting Vietnam. The visa is easily organized at the Vietnamese Embassy or on arrival in the country at certain airports and border crossings. However, it is usually recommended to organize the paperwork prior to arriving in the country for the most efficient and timely travel.
