I can't deal with the hot humid weather in the summer which is why I have never gone during this season. I went to Japan once in the summer and HATED it. I know Vietnam is similar. I don't want to risk ruining another trip. Even cotton clothing did me no favors but I run hot.

I love the advice of wearing layers, especially if you're going to be out in the sun a lot. I'm also a fan of bringing a bottle of water with you on your walk, so you can stay hydrated as you go! It's good to always keep some kind of sunscreen with you, too!

I think one of the easiest ways to deal with humid hot air is to keep yourself wet. Anytime I travel somewhere hot and humid, I will bring one of those fans that you can attach to a water bottle or fill with water and I just keep myself wet

I agree that you should dress accordingly for the weather, but I think you missed one key point: Hanoi is known as the "Paris of the East," and so it's not just a matter of dressing for the weather, it's also a matter of dressing for the occasion.

@BenjaminNgo This is true! You want to dress properly otherwise you will stand out like a sore thumb. It is very much a fashion district and people here dress elegantly and always dress up to go out into the public areas.

I find the Vietnamese traditional dress aesthetically pleasing.

The styles they wear almost always mesh with the weather and serve a purpose. That being said, even their most cooling clothing cannot be enough if you are not used to humid hot air!
