Climate

"There is not really a right or wrong time to visit Vietnam as during most months of the year you will experience both sunshine and rain in varying quantities. Welcome to a country with 2000 + miles of coastline and three different weather systems."


          Climate -Vietnam is a country of 1,650 km long and hence the different climatic zones. The whole country falls into the tropic and subtropics but its stretching length and diverse topography allow it to span several different climate zones. The weather thus, tends to vary considerably from season to season and also from region to region.
Some of these vaccinations are always recommended, regardless of the length of your stay in Vietnam. Other vaccinations, we recommend only if you want to stay longer than a certain time in Vietnam.
