Best time of the year to visit Vietnam?

Being so diverse and reliant on your location, Vietnam is a hard place to call as you can almost certainly expect every type of weather on your Vietnam tours.

Be sure to avoid monsoon season in the northeast between October and March. Similarly, be sure to avoid central Vietnam during the months of July-November due to a series of violent typhoons.

That being said, Vietnam weather is unpredictable and so the majority of the time the weather is beautiful. If it is damp, it usually adds to the atmosphere.

Popular times to visit are during the summer months of April-August. Vietnam tours are also popular between October-March, mainly in the south.

If you are backpacking South East Asia it is imperative that you give Vietnam the time it deserves by stopping over for a long stay. A few days simply won't do.

Food and Culture of Vietnam

Vietnam tours will open your eyes to the fascinating history and the fervent integrity that the Vietnamese have generated over time. From the mastermind trenches to the somber and overwhelming museums, Ho Chi Minh, the capital, formerly known as Saigon,  propels you into poignant museums and a great understanding of the history of Vietnam.

If you are after an eclectic array of Southeast Asian food then search no further because Vietnamese food is your next stop. Traveling Vietnam will provide you with a multitude of dishes, ranging from the obscure to the sumptuous (at cheap prices).

The beauty of Vietnamese food lies in its range of spices used in the majority of their dishes. A fusion of ginger, lemongrass, lime, chili, cinnamon and mint, including a few other specialties, is a novel and flavorsome addition to any dish. Indulge in Pho noodle soup or goi salad and let your senses run wild.

Main Attractions and Tourist Regions in Vietnam

Start any Vietnam tour by cruising Halong bay (Ha Long Bay in Vietnamese, meaning the ‘descending dragon bay’), a beautiful boat ride that travels through limestone rocks and still, blue waters. The ones who want to party at Halong Bay will usually stay 2-3 nights as boats in the bay merge and travelers share stories of their tour of Vietnam. For the more relaxed visitor, 1-2 nights is the usual stay.

From Halong bay, travel the north of Vietnam in Sapa. With rugged scenery and picturesque rice terraces, trekking Sapa will captivate any seasoned traveler. Next, travel to Hanoi, Vietnam's frenetic capital city that beats to the sound of sizzling Vietnamese street food, lively fruit markets and the perpetual sound of motorbike engines. If you want non-stop action then it's a wise choice to travel Hanoi.

After this mind-blowing start to your Vietnam tour, you still have so many great towns as you travel Vietnam, from the charming Hội An, a town with colorful streets and a thriving shopping hub, attracting millions of tourists a year, all purchasing perfectly tailored suits,  to the bustling nightlife of Nha Trang, that are well worth a visit as you then travel on from Ha Long bay down to the Mekong delta in southern Vietnam. Hue, Vietnam's ancient capital is particularly interesting to view the early history of Vietnam.

Vietnam offers just the start of your Indochina tours but as you travel Southeast Asia you may just realize that if you visit Vietnam you will find the cream of the crop.

Tina responded very quickly and provided helpful advice. We are very happy with the service provided. The Vietnam trip was perfect. The local provider communicated well and all the travel arrangements worked out very well.

Stephen Morgan, December 2016

Tina did an excellent job in co-ordinating all the travel arrangements.
Top Hotel was the Atlas in Hoi An
Least liked Hotel was Le Duy in HCMC - especially the breakfast area being completed enclosed (no windows or natural light) and the fact that all the tables were joined together. When the area was full the noise level was horrid

Tina replied promptly to all my emails and was very helpful when my mobile phone was stolen after the tour. I wish I had stayed at the hotels she recommended, (we only wanted 2-3 star hotels to save money and were happy at places like that in India) but saw e.g. in Hue and on Phu Quoc that we would have been happier at the hotels she originally recommended. She knows what she is doing! We had a wonderful trip on Calypso Cruiser in Halong Bay. The guides were very knowledgeable and supportive, particularly liked "Mr Ten" who is a really nice guy. Would definitely book with her again and use www.trip.me for other countries .

Our trip was a dream come true and Vinh was a real star - our travel experience was exactly what had been promised!

McGowan Allan, June 2015

Our holiday in Vietnam, with the exception of two issues, was excellent.
It was exactly as per the agreed itinerary.
The two issues of concern the late check-out & the accommodation.
Late check-out:- My request for a late check-out was because we had a 5 hour wait which we did not want to sit in a hotel lobby with our luggage.
Accommodation:- 1 to 5
Sabah Sai Gon: Max 2. I would never stay there again.
Bed – terrible, very uncomfortable.
ood – also terrible. breakfast food very ordinary and always cold. Dinner meal, often our selection from menu was not available, food very ordinary!
Hua Giang: 4 Very good.
Chau Pho: Max 1.5 - I would never stay there again.
Medallion: 4 Very good.
Thuy Duong: 4 Very good.
At Cat Ba we did not stay at the Sea Pearl as per our itinerary. Our guide booked us into the Holiday View Hotel...Max 2.5 very ordinary.
I hope the above will be of assistance to you for any future bookings.
Thank you, Allan McGowan
