What about Vietnam in October?

The Centre of Vietnam remains hot and predominantly dry with infrequent rain expected, but increasing towards the end of the month. The south is firmly in the midst of the wet season with daily downpours to be expected whilst the north is well into summer mode with high temperatures and frequent rain the norm.

Visitor numbers relatively remain low and the central beaches still promise a great deal of sunshine. Trekking is off the cards in most regions because of rain in the northern mountains and central highlands.


North Vietnam
HanoiHalong BaySapa, Ha Giang, Mu Cang Chai, Ninh Binh & Mai Chau

The north of the country remains in summer meaning you can expect plenty of hot weather as well as rain and at times storms (avg temp: 30 °C). Halong Bay and Hanoi are prone to heavy showers at this time of year, infact August is one of the wettest months of the year in Hanoi. The mountains to the north are also very wet with trekking unadvisable throughout the month.

Best places to visit in Northern Vietnam: Hanoi, Ha Giang, Mu Cang Chai, Sapa.

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.

Ha 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.

Mu Cang Chai is a district of Yen Bai province. It shares the border in the north with Van Ban district of Lao Cai province, neighboring in the south of Muong La district of Son La province, being the west of Than Uyen Lai Chau province, sharing in the east of Van Chan district and Yen Bai province. The district is located at the foot of Hoang Lien Son mountain range, at an altitude of 1,000 metres above sea level. To get to Mu Cang Chai district, travellers must pass through Khau Pha Pass, which is one of four imposing passes in the northwest of Vietnam.

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.


Central Vietnam
Hoi An, Danang, Hue, Nha Trang, Quy Nhon, Dalat & Central Highlands

The beaches of Hoi An and Danang are still the pick of the bunch with good weather expected throughout the month. Temperatures remain high and whilst still predominantly dry, rain is expected more frequently towards the end of the month (avg temp: 30 °C). Nha Trang is likely to see the best of the weather, although towards the end of the month it can become overcast at times. Hue is experiencing higher rainfall whilst to the west the Central Highlands are now very wet making adventure activities unadvisable.

Best places to visit in Central Vietnam: Hue, Nha Trang

Hue: 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.

Nha Trang: lies in a beautiful bay on the south central coast of Vietnam and has rapidly developed into a bustling destination for sun and fun. With white sandy beaches as well as nearby islands with clear turquoise waters, Nha Trang is also known as one of the best places in Vietnam for excellent fishing, snorkeling and scuba diving. Boat trips are also a real highlight of Nha Trang.

South Vietnam
Ho Chi Minh City, Phan Thiet & Mui Ne, Mekong Delta, Ho Tram & Long Hai, Con Dao & Phu Quoc

The south is now firmly into its wet season, thankfully however this is unlikely to be severe; whilst the showers will be slightly heavier than in previous months you can still expect plenty of dry and bright daylight hours (avg temp: 29°C).

From mid-August, Green Turtle hatchlings can be observed emerging from the beaches on Con Dao and making their first steps to the sea. 


Best place to visit in Southern Vietnam: Con Dao 

Con Dao: You’re likely to experience two sides to the Con Dao Islands when you visit: one day spent swimming in the clear sea, walking upon white sand beaches, driving along deserted coast roads, and drinking cocktails on the seafront promenade; another spent visiting the prisons, learning about former inmates – many of whom are celebrated national heroes – and witnessing remnants of their forced labour, which caused hundreds of prisoners to die. The former is the future of the Con Dao Islands as a tropical paradise. The latter is its past as a penal colony, set up by the French colonial administration.
