Something that wasn't mentioned that I think helps a lot is to bring one of those small hand fans. I have one that I can plug into my phone and it has helped me a lot when traveling to places that get super hot. They also sell ones with built-in water sprayers too.

@aodaii That is a good tip!

I have seen some sold in shops at airports before around different areas so it is always an option to grab one after the fact but best to bring you own just in case!

I don't mind the heat so much, it is the humid air that gets to me. I can be in very high temps but if the humidity is not high, I am fine. But I have heard some months are terrible humid in Mekong Delta!

I learned a lot about this location reading this post but not very much information on beating the heat, per say. I mean this location sounds amazing. Not one I had considering visiting before!

@HaiTay Looks like the heat in the Mekong Delta is no joke, but I guess I'll have to bring my own portable air conditioner and a whole lot of sunscreen if I ever decide to visit.

I think of of the best ways is to stay hydrated. Your body will run cooler the more you drink. Just don't overdo it as too much water in a short period can make you sick!

I completely understand how tough it can be to deal with the heat and humidity in the Mekong Delta, but these are some great tips to help you stay comfortable during your visit. One additional suggestion would be to plan your trip during the cooler months of the year, which are typically from December to February. This way, you can enjoy all that the region has to offer without feeling too hot and bothered.

The humidity it terrible in Mekong Delta. It can be down right brutal at times. Most people that travel to the area are not used to being in that environment and if they are not prepared, it will end up being a bad time. I think these are great tips. I always tell people to only go to Vietnam during the colder season to avoid the harsh humidity.
