Hanoi – Best time to go

Best time to visit Hanoi

As a city destination you dont necessarily need blazing sunshine when visiting Hanoi infact with so much sighseeing its better to visit in the cooler drier months of  October, November and March. 

Best times to visit

Dry Season

The dry season stretches from November to April. Hanoi’s winter, November to February, encounters the coolest, driest days, but you will need a jacket for the evening chill. February to April sees warmer temperatures and a little more rain. 

Rainy Season

Hanoi is affected by the southwest monsoon from May to October. May to August is typically the wettest time of year, with an uncomfortably hot, humid climate. September and October still see showers, but tend to be milder and sunnier. 

Favourite Season

Temperatures rise and fall more dramatically in Hanoi than in many parts of Vietnam, so we think October, November, March, and April are the best months to visit, when the weather is mild and mostly dry; perfect weather for exploring.
