There is not really a right or wrong time to visit Viet Nam as during most months of the year you will experience both sunshine and rain in varying quantities.  Welcome to a country with 3,000+ miles of coastline and three different weather systems.


Whilst Viet Nam is typically warm and humid, the weather can vary significantly from one region to another due to the countries length. At times there has been snow in the mountainous far north whilst the beaches in the south enjoyed 32°C and sunshine.


It pays to imagine the country as three separate destinations when researching weather for your intended visit and the following information will hopefully help you unravel the complexities.
