Weather

The city of Phnom Penh enjoys warm, tropical weather all year long. There are two seasons: a dry season from December to April and a wet season from May to November. In the dry season the northeast monsoon winds keep the days sunny and dry, but the wet season brings the monsoons themselves, bringing showers and high levels of humidity. Many people choose to visit in December and January due to the comfortable climate and lack of rain.

Typical for Cambodia, Siem Reap enjoys warm, tropical weather all year round. The dry season lasts from November to March, with hardly any rain falling in December and January, although these two months are part of the Cambodian winter, meaning cooler climes. This time is ideal for sightseeing, allowing visitors to cycle and visit the temples comfortably. The wet season begins in May and lasts until November, and often brings spectacular storms.

The weather in Ho Chi Minh (Saigon) is split into just two seasons, and the city receives a tropical climate with hot, humid conditions all year round. The rainy season lasts from May to November, with showers tending to be short and sudden during this period. The dry season sees slightly cooler temperatures, but still maintains an average temperature of 28ºC. Typhoons are common between July and November, so it's advisable to avoid this period. Most people choose to visit during the dry season.

Danang's monsoon tropical climate means that it enjoys mild temperatures throughout the year. The temperatures peak between May and September, and conditions can become hot and sticky. The temperatures during the winter months can be quite cool, with plenty of rain received September through December. The best time to visit Danang is between February and May, when the skies are sunny and humidity levels aren't too high. The long wet season means that you may see some rain whenever you visit, although showers are generally short.

As expected of a city in central Vietnam, Hoi An enjoys warm weather the whole year round with an average temperature of 29°C. There are two main seasons: the wet season and the dry season. The wet season spans from September to January, and these months see constantly heavy showers. It is best to visit during the dry season, specifically between February and May when temperatures are moderate and humidity is low. However, if you're a sun-worshipper, plan your trip for May or June.

Hue's unique location within a mountain range gives the city its notoriously bad weather of gloom and drizzle for the majority of the year. The region does see a dry season however, and temperatures peak between May and August. Visiting during the dry months will also allow you one of the best Hue experiences - swimming in the river that runs through the Phong Nha caves.

Hanoi enjoys the typical weather experienced in Northern Vietnam, with a hot season from April through to October, and cooler winter weather from then on. The wet season mirrors the hot season, producing humid months with an average temperature of around 30°C. The weather is very changeable however, so don't be surprised to see temperatures, rainfall and sun hours vary from day to day. Generally the best time of year to visit is during April and May, with comfortable temperatures and still relatively low rainfall.

Halong Bay's climate is humid and tropical, with two distinct seasons. Summers are hot and humid, lasting from around April to September, and winters are dry and cold, lasting from October through March. It is best to visit during the dry season, although from December to February the weather can be cool and overcast, causing low visibility. Storms are likely during summer.
