Vietnam is a fascinating destination and a perfect choice any time of the year, but since the distance between its north and south parts is over 1500 km, you will find various weather conditions depending on the latitude. So although any month is fine for Vietnam, it somewhat depends on which part you plan to visit. Basically, April to June period is considered the most beneficial, with blue skies and enjoyable temperatures. Later, there are big chances of storms and pouring rains.

Here are travel “schedules” for different parts of Vietnam:
