To make your holiday as smooth as possible, we’ve outline some general information that may be helpful to you when planning your getaway to Vietnam.

Tropical monsoons occur from October to April in the central region and from May to September in the north and south. It is almost totally dry throughout the rest of the year. It can get exceptionally hot, all year round, but the north has a cooler time between October and April. Temperatures around the country can reach up to 40C° in the pinnacle of the hot and rainy season (May to September), but the northern highlands and the capital Hanoi can often seem cold in the winter months.

Food & Drink in Vietnam

Profoundly influenced by the cuisines of France, China, and Thailand, Vietnamese cooking is highly innovative, fragrant, spicy, light and delicious. Duck and beef dishes are popular, as are crispy spring rolls with dipping sauces. The nation’s favourite dish is ‘pho’, a spicy noodle soup, with variations in recipe according to region and family. French colonial influence means superb crusty baguettes and sweet pastries as good as those served in France, at a fraction of the price! Green tea is the national drink, and Vietnam also produces beers.
