When is the best time of year for a month long trip to Vietnam? Want to avoid intense heat/humidity & plan to visit rural and city areas.
We are planning a month long trip to Vietnam. We will also be stopping flying in and out of Bangkok to visit family, but our primary interest is Vietnam. We are planning to visit several rural villages as well as the major cities. We will be outdoors a lot and doing some low to average intensity hiking. Wondering what time of year is best. Trying to go in a good dry season and to avoid intense heat and humidity.
Vietnam is a long thin country with a very wide range of weather. Check this out about when to go: http://adventures.worldnomads.com/destination/233/travelguide/2/Vietnam/When-to-Go.aspx about 8 years ago
