The dry, cooler weather has firmly returned to north Vietnam making November one of the best months to visit.

What about Vietnam in November ?

The central regions are receiving the lion’s share of the rain with stormy weather a possibility at times. In the far south it’s a different story with blue skies and sunshine ensuring that the beaches of Phu Quoc, Phan Thiet & Mui Ne are back to their best, a situation that will remain for the coming six months. Good conditions for adventure activities continue in the mountains of the north and also return to the Central Highlands.

North Vietnam
Hanoi, Halong Bay, Sapa, Ha Giang, Mu Cang Chai, Ninh Binh & Mai Chau
By November the hot and wet summer is becoming a distant memory in the north and the region is now enjoying some of the best conditions of the year. Temperatures remain moderate and the little rain there is becomes infrequent and light (avg temp: 24°C). 
In the far north the weather in the mountainous regions of Mu Cang Chai, Sapa and Ha Giang is dry and clear promising some of the best trekking conditions of the year. November is also considered to be one of the best months to experience a junk cruise on Halong Bay. 

Best place to visit in Northern Vietnam
Moc ChauMoc Chau (Mộc Châu) is a big plateau in Son La province. It is well-known for poetic landscapes with endless grass fields, huge gardens of plum and apricot trees and various flowers, immense tea plantations and large herds of milk cows.
There are many ways to travel to Moc Chau plateau, however, I think the best way is traveling by motorbike. During the trip, you can observe the poetic but majestic beauty of Moc Chau.

Ha Giang province (Hà Giang) in northern Vietnam is less frequented by tourists. Ha Giang is the place where almost 90% of the population are ethnic minorities with their own cultures and lifestyles. During the last 20 years, whilst other Vietnamese provinces and cities experienced economic development, Ha Giang was the place which seems to have stood still in time. The main reason for this has been the political situation and relations with China.

Sapa lies on the side of Hoang Lien Son Mountains, 333 km northwest of Hanoi, close to Chinese border. This area has spectacular scenery, many natural sites and is home to diverse mountain tribe communities; especially, it is also the starting point for those who want to conquer the top of Fansipan Mountain, the highest mountain in Vietnam at 3,143m.

Hanoi sprawls along the banks of the Red River, which is spanned by two bridges Long Bien and Chuong Duong. The Hanoian is proud to be residents of a city of lakes, shaded boulevards and verdant public parks. Over thousand years of its eventful history, Hanoi still preserves much ancient architecture throughout the Old Quarter, over 600 pagodas and temples, reminding of the city's rich cultural heritage.

Central Vietnam
Hoi An, Danang, Hue, Nha Trang, Quy Nhon, Dalat & Central Highlands
The rainfall in the centre of the country is at its peak and heavy storms can occur. Hoi Ai in particular is prone to flooding in November. The temperatures in Hoi An and Hue differ with Hoi An and Danang being the hotter end of the Hai Van Pass (avg temp: 23- 25°C). Further south Nha Trang (sitting in its own micro-weather system) will be seeing plenty of rain with nearly half the city's annual rainfall falling in October and November. Up in the Central Highlands and Dalat it’s a different story with clear skies and little if any rain expected.

Situated in the Centre of Vietnam, Hue used to be the former capital of the emperors of the Nguyen Dynasty. Thus, Hue has been one of Vietnam's main cultural, religious and educational centres. With diversified and beautiful landscapes, Hue possesses a unique and harmoniously beauty. Today, its main attractions are the royal tombs, notable pagodas and the remains of the Citadel. In 1993, Hue Citadel was recognized as a World Cultural Heritage Site by UNESCO and followed is Hue Royal Musical declared as a World Intangible Cultural Heritage in 2003.

Hoi Anonce known as Faifo, was a major international port in the 16th and 17th centuries, and the foreign influences are discernible to this day. While the serious shipping business has long since moved to Da Nang, the heart of the city is still the Old Town, full of winding lanes and Chinese-styled shophouses, which is particularly atmospheric in the evening as the sun goes down. While almost all shops now cater to the tourist trade, the area has been largelypreserved as is, which is unusual in Vietnam, and renovation has proceeded slowly and carefully - it's mercifully absent of towering concrete blocks and karaoke parlors.

South Vietnam
Ho Chi Minh City, Phan Thiet & Mui Ne, Mekong Delta, Ho Tram & Long Hai, Con Dao & Phu Quoc
Come November the south welcomes back the summer in all its glory with some of the best weather of the year, thanks to clear skies and a drop in humidity (avg temp: 27°C). The beaches within easy reach of Ho Chi Minh City - Phan Thiet & Mui Ne, Ho Tram & Long Hai - are experiencing blue skies and plenty of sunshine. The islands of Phu Quoc and Con Dao are also enjoying warm, dry weather, making the southern beaches the pick of the bunch in November.

Mekong Delta
Touring the orchards, paddy fields and swamplands of the Mekong Delta, you could be forgiven for thinking you’ve stepped into the pages of a geography textbook. A comma-shaped flatland stretching from Ho Chi Minh’s city limits southwest to the Gulf of Thailand, the delta is Vietnam’s rice bowl, an agricultural miracle that pumps out more than a third of the country’s annual food crop from just ten percent of its total land mass. Rice may be the delta’s staple crop, but coconut palms, fruit orchards and sugar-cane groves also thrive in its nutrient-rich soil, and the sight of conical-hatted farmers tending their land is one of Vietnam’s most enduring images
Mui Ne: One of southern Vietnam’s popular beach destinations, Mui Ne is a 12-kilometre long sweeping bay that boasts beachfront resorts. Twenty years of development have transformed the once sleepy fishing town into a water sports mecca, most notably for kitesurfing. With Ho Chi Minh City a mere four hours away, it’s an attractive option for travellers looking to jump into a beach holiday from the city.
Phu QuocLocated 10-degree North latitude, Phu Quoc is a tropical island whose closest landing point in Vietnam by sea is the town of Ha Tien, also in Kien Giang province and is 46 km away. Rach Gia city, the capital of the province is 120 km away and be reached by sea (2.5 hours) and by air (25 minute fly). Ho Chi Minh City is some 500 km away and is accessible by air (60 minutes fly).
