Tourists who plan their trips to Vietnam normally ask a question like " When is the best time to visit Vietnam" and the answer is " Vietnam is beautiful and you can visit all year round". In fact, the answer is not wrong, but to know more when planning your Vietnam travel, Vivutravel would like to give you some tips.
The most beautiful destinations in Vietnam by months
January: Hanoi at the beginning of Winter. It is right time to enjoy the cold sweet days with a hot cup of egg coffee and take a walk to explore Hanoi's old town slowly and quietly. However, the most beautiful time to visit Hanoi is Autumn from August to October when it is not as hot as Summer, not as cold as Winter. Autumn of Hanoi is romantic season of daisies, milkwood pine flower, leave changes... and has become the poetic inspiration for generations of Vietnamese.
If you plan your Vietnam travel in January, stay longer in Hanoi to enjoy the most beautiful time in this capital city of Vietnam.
February: Located in the northernmost province of Vietnam and 300km from Hanoi, Ha Giang is the most beautiful destination in Vietnam for tourists to enjoy spectacular landscapes on meandering roads.
Ha Giang is home to different ethnic minorities living in high mountains who still keep their own culture and customs. In Ha Giang, tourists can visit the Heaven Gate and Twin mountain in Quan Ba, Dong Van karst plateau geopark, Lung Cu national flag tower, The Vuong Palace, Lung Cam village, Pho Bang ancient town, Nho Que river, Ma Pi Leng pas...However, what makes Ha Giang a great destination to visit in February is nice weather and colors of peach blossom, plum flower, pear flower, brassica napus flower in harmony with nature and people in this highland.
A tour to explore Ha Giang in February is the most wonderful trip in one's life time. So, Vivutravel advises you to include Ha Giang in your Vietnam package.
March: The Central Highlands is the South Central region consisting of 5 provinces: Kon Tum, Gia Lai, Dak Lak, Dak Nong and Lam Dong. In March, the climate of the Central Highlands is very mild and cool, which is an ideal time for tourists to visit the scenic spots of this vast plateau. The Central Highlands is not only attractive by nature but also attracts visitors by its cultural beauty and the experience of discovering the customs, habits and identities of the ethnic minorities living in the region. March is also the season of coffee flower, the soul of the Central Highlands.
April: The dry season in Hoi An is from January to July and April seems to be the best month to visit Hoi An when it is sunny but not too hot. The weather and climate in April are suitable for all travel activities in Hoi An from walking, cycling to swimming.
Hoi An is always the top holiday destination of Vietnam, Asia and the World. Tourists should come to visit Hoi An at any time of the year. If not, it will be your big regret. Each season has its own beauty. Just stay in Hoi An, it is also your luck.
May: Halong bay is the world's natural hesitage site and has long been the most attractive destination for both domestic and international tourists. May is the best month to visit Ha Long bay and spend one or two night on a cruise ship. This time of the year is sunny with blue sky and the climate is quite cool, good for all activitie like swimming, kayaking, climbing...
June: Do you know that the worl's most stunning rice terraced fields are in Vietnam? And Sapa, Y Ty, Hoang Su Phi, Mu Cang Chai are the most beautiful places to see rice terraces in pouring water season. It is when people get water to the fields and the valleys look like huge mirrors sparking under the Sunrise or becoming a water painting under Sunset and turning mysterious under the moonlight.
Coming to visit these places in pouring water season, tourists will also have opportunities to experience and admire how the locals create and work on the fileds like that.
July: This is really hot Summer time in the north of Vietnam and a place to hide the heat is to go to the coastal cities in the central part of Vietnam. Phu Yen province blessed with pristine beaches, but little visited, is our recommendation. (You can also look at Quy Nhon, Nha Trang and Mui Ne)
To get to Phu Yen, tourists can take the flight from Hanoi, Sai Gon or travel by road from Hoi An, Da Nang or Nha Trang. It depends on your Vietnam tour schedule.
August: It is flooding season in Mekong delta where you will visit floating market, fruit gardens and experience life of Vietnamese people on rivers. There are few places in Mekong delta worth visiting like; My Tho, Ben Tre, Cai Be floating market, Cai Rang floating market.
September: This is harvesting season in the mountainous areas in the north of Vietnam when the rice terraces turns from green to yellow. Again, Sapa, Y Ty, Hoang Su Phi, Mu Cang Chai are the most beautiful destinations to visit. The weather and climate are normally perfect in this time of the year.
October: In the north, Ninh Binh is beautiful with river flowing among the yellow rice fields and karst mountains in Tam Coc and a boat trip to explore Trang An, Van Long natural reserve is really something fantastic in Autumn's atmosphere. Another place that can't be missed in the north is Ban Gioc waterfall in Cao Bang where you will see picturesque landscapes of yellow rice fields, karst mountains, blue river and the nicest waterfall in Vietnam and Asia.
In the south, Phu Quoc island - the pearl island of Vietnam is the best destination to end your Vietnam holiday before coming home. October in Phu Quoc is the intersection between the rainy season and the dry season, Bai Sao, Bai Dai, Bai Khen beach are with gentle waves and whispering wind. It is a great feeling to lie down on the sandy beaches and watch the endless blue sea, experience fun things like scuba diving, paragliding, canoeing, etc.
