SELECT YOUR TIME FOR HOLIDAYS IN VIETNAM

Vietnam Weather

Vietnam  has a tropical monsoon climate, with the south or southwesterly monsoon dominating from May to September and the northeast monsoon from October to April. So figuring out the best time for your holidays in Vietnam depends on which parts of the country you want to visit.

The north of Vietnam has cold dry winters from December to February, where overnight temperatures can dip to 4°C . The summer months (May to August) are typically very hot and humid. The best time to visit northern Vietnam is during spring (March to April) and autumn (September to November), when days are generally warm and sunny.

The centre of Vietnam is often battered with typhoons during its wet season. It’s difficult to predict when these heavy rains and hurricane-like winds can hit coastal cities like Hoi An, but generally typhoon seasons runs from August to November. The rainy season usually subsides in February, when you can expect warmer temperatures and more sunshine. While travellers will experience pleasant weather in Central Vietnam any time between February and August, sunny 30°C days are the norm in July and August.

The south of Vietnam experiences warm, pleasant temperatures year-round, making travel good at any time. Generally, the dry season runs from December to May and a rainy season runs from June through November. While flooding can occur, rain usually comes in short bursts and rarely impacts travel. In fact, the monsoon season is often the best time for photography as dramatic thunderheads float across the Mekong Delta and rice fields turn a vibrant emerald-green. Some, however, might find temperatures unbearable from March to May, when the mercury regularly reaches 40°C .

PLAN YOUR FLIGHT FOR VIETNAM HOLIDAYS

The number of direct flights to Vietnam’s international airports -  Ho Chi Minh City ( Tan San Nhat Airport, SNG), Hanoi ( Noi Bai Airport, HAN),  Da Nang ( Da Nang Airport, DAD), Can Tho ( Can Tho Airport, VCA),   Phu Quoc ( Phu Quoc Airport , PQC),   Nha Trang ( Cam Ranh Airport, CXR), Hue ( Phu Bai Airport, HUI), Vinh ( Vinh Airport, VII) , Hai Phong  ( Cat Bi Airport, HPH) and Quang Ninh ( Van Don Airport, VDO)   – have increased steadily in recent years. However, the majority of visitors take the cheaper option of an indirect flight routed through Bangkok, Singapore or Hong Kong. You may well save even more by taking a bargain-basement flight to Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur or Singapore, and a separate ticket through one of the region’s low-cost carriers, such as Jetstar, Tiger Airways and Air Asia for the Vietnam leg.

Vietnam Airlines flies direct from London to Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi (both around 12 hours) but there are no direct flights from Ireland. You may save money by flying with a Middle Eastern or Southeast Asian carrier such as Qatar, Singapore Airlines, Malaysia Airlines, Emirates or Cathay Pacific from London via the airline’s home city.

No direct flights exist between Vietnam and North America for the time being. In 2004 United Airlines became the first American carrier to resume direct flights to Vietnam since 1975, but this service was discontinued in 2016. To reach Vietnam from North America, you'll have to catch one of the many flights to a regional hub, such as Bangkok, Singapore or Hong Kong, and continue on from there.

Note that some routings require an overnight stay in another city such as Bangkok, Taipei, Hong Kong or Seoul, and often a hotel room will be included in your fare – ask the airline and shop around since travel agents’ policies on this vary.

Direct flights between Australia and Vietnam are in surprisingly poor supply, with Vietnam Airlines operating routes from Ho Chi Minh City to Melbourne and Sydney (both 8-9 hours). The alternative is to fly to another Asian gateway, such as Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore or Hong Kong, and then either get connecting flights or travel overland to Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City. You can do this with AirAsia, Cebu Pacific, Jetstar, Malaysia Airlines, Singapore Airlines and Thai Airways.

There are no direct flights from New Zealand; AirAsia fly from Aukland to Kuala Lumpur and thence to Vietnam, but you'll often get cheap-as routings via Australia too. As for flag carriers, decent low-season fares can be found with Malaysia Airlines, Thai Airways, Qantas and Singapore Airlines.
