The Hottest Season Ain’t That Bad
You heard that it would be incredibly hot with the highest temperature up to more than 40 degrees?

There’re still windy and cloudy days in which the sun is not too harsh and outdoor activities are fantastic. Moreover, if you keep in mind our top recommended tips to beat the heat, you can fully enjoy your time during the hottest period in Vietnam.
You thought that the heavy rain would ruin your trip and force you stay at the hotel all the time?
The truth is summer shower in Vietnam is super quick. It rarely lasts for days. A sudden downpour is actually an excellent way to reduce the temperature, adding a fresh and gentle breeze to ease the bitter heat.
Is it in your perspective that summer is the stormy season and storms mean danger?
Vietnam possesses tropical monsoon weather with quite separate seasons and the monsoon winds are the main cause of storms in this country. However, the most active season of monsoon begins in November and extends to April next year. It is not in the summer at all.
Furthermore, since Vietnam stretches through an extensive range of latitude, climate among the three regions differs greatly. If the South is predicted to have an upcoming storm, let’s go to the North or the Central.
