Peak ( Dec - Mar )

Dry and pleasant weather can be found over most of the country, although there may be hazy days over Ha Long Bay in January (March is the best time for it). February is Tet (Vietnamese New Year); a lot of shops and restaurants may be closed, but the streets come alive with celebration.

Shoulder ( Apr - Jun , Oct - Nov )

Expect a little rainfall, but nothing that will impact your days (this is, after all, the shoulder of dry and wet seasons). The north and south are predominantly the wetter areas, but the entire middle coastline of beaches are picture perfect.

Low ( Jul - Sep )

Wet in the north and south and still dry and pleasant in the middle region and interior. Treks up in the north will be untenable, and the beaches of the south may get rained out on a daily basis.
