Best Time to Visit Vietnam for Your Family Tours
Northern provinces are good to visit all-year-round, but winters are relatively cold particularly in the mountainous areas such as Ha Giang and Sapa, summers are rather hot with high humidity. Remember to bring your sunscreen, jackets, and umbrella or hat to protect your family and yourself from the sun.
From May to September, it is the rainy season. Landslides on the roads in Ha Giang and Sapa happen regularly, easily leading to accidents.
Generally, the best time for families with kids traveling in Vietnam is spring months from February to April and autumn months from August to October. These months have pleasant temperatures and lighter rainfall. You could travel to central provinces in summers yet bring sunscreen for better protection.
In the Southern regions, there are two major seasons, including wet season from May to October, and dry season from November to April. The rains are often short in time and will not impact your shore excursions, you can visit and contemplate the landscape’s beauty on any day of the year.
