When to Go

The best time to visit Vietnam depends on where you want to go and what you want to do. The north of the country experiences four distinct seasons, while the south has a tropical climate. Generally speaking, the best time to visit Vietnam is between October and December, when the weather is most pleasant and there are fewer crowds. However, if you’re interested in attractions like the annual Tet festival, you’ll need to visit in late January or early February.

The easiest way to get around Vietnam is by airplane since the country is relatively large and traveling by land can be quite slow. However, if you’re looking for an authentic experience and don’t mind going at a slower pace, consider taking one of the many buses or trains that crisscross the country. Whichever option you choose, be sure to book your tickets in advance, as transportation can fill up quickly during peak tourism season.

Oh wow, I had no idea that Vietnam had a tropical climate, thanks for letting me know. I’m sure that won’t be a problem at all when I’m packing for my trip, I’ll just bring my winter coat and snow boots. And I’m sure trying new food won’t be an issue either, I mean, who doesn’t love a good case of food poisoning on vacation? But don’t worry, I’ll be sure to show my appreciation for the culture by wearing my cowboy hat and boots everywhere I go.

I definitely agree that you should do your research before traveling to Vietnam! I went without knowing much about the culture and customs and I definitely regretted it. It would have been helpful to know more about the language and the way people interact.

If you’re planning a trip to Vietnam, here are some things you need to know: the country is huge, and there’s a lot to see; it’s worth planning your trip well in advance to avoid crowds and to get the best deals; be aware of the dangers you may face while traveling to Vietnam, including scams and violent crime; and make sure to pack your passport and other travel documents. Keep in mind that Vietnamese currency is the dong and that the dong is not as strong as some other currencies.

Great recommendations in terms of planning a trip. I always hear people say October through January are the best times  but I think you can have a good trip in September and February as well.
