Ho Chi Minh City – Best time to go

Best time to visit Ho Chi Minh City

As a city destination you wont want it to be too hot when you are out and about sightseeing, we recommend visiting in November to March for dry but slightly cooler weather. 

Best times to visit

Dry Season

The dry season starts in November and lasts until April. This time of year is also the hottest, peaking around late April. Humidity increases leading up to the rainy season, making outdoor activities more of an effort. 

Rainy Season

The rainy season falls between May and October, with a humid climate and frequent showers. Downpours usually make way for the sun within a couple of hours though. June and October are the wettest months and best avoided.  

Favourite Season

Ho Chi Minh City is warm year round, but we like visiting from December to March, when the weather is dry and not too hot for sightseeing. Christmas, New Year, Lunar New Year, and the Vietnamese Tet festival add extra cultural colour.
