Peak season

There’s no bad time to take cheap flights to Vietnam, indeed this fascinating country is a sought after Asian holiday destination by Australians all year round. Hanoi in the north and Ho Chi Minh in the south are the largest tourist cities, but due to their geographical distance experience different weather patterns. In general, November through April is the cold season in Vietnam and May through October the hot season. A couple of peak periods to note are the Christmas holidays, Tet Holiday (aka Vietnamese New Year), celebrated in late January to early-mid February. July and August are the busiest months for tourism, when the hot and humid weather causes locals to leave the cities and accommodation prices rise up to 50% along the coast. For reasonably priced flights to Vietnam during July and August book well in advance.

Off Season

April to June and September to November are considered low season in Vietnam and the best time to book flight tickets if you want to tour the whole country. Be aware that typhoons often strike the central and northern coastline until November.

What is good to know if travelling to Vietnam?

Things to do and see in Vietnam

  • Hoi An, south of Da Nang, has a UNESCO-listed Old Town. It’s also the place to go to have a new outfit made to measure. The thing to remember is that you get what you pay for. Give the tailors as much time as you possibly can and you may need to have alterations made too. 
  • Sa Pa (or Sapa), about 400km north of Hanoi, was once a French hill station and is a wonderful place to see the different minority groups of Vietnam, especially at local markets. The Hmong Leng are the most numerous of the minority groups in Sa Pa. Their costume is a black and brightly embroidered dress. The Dao group usually wear red, either a headdress or a red piece of clothing. At Bac Ha, there’s a market on Sundays. Here, you will be able to see the Flowery H’mong ethnic minority people as they buy and sell and go about their business. The dress of the Flowery H’mong people is eye-catchingly bright, blocks of colour interspersed with stripes and patterns. Rainbows are less bright than the costume of the Flowery H’mong people. 
  • In the South China Sea, the Con Dao Islands have some amazing spots for swimming and snorkelling. They’re tipped to become the biggest diving centre for Vietnam. 
  • Vietnam’s coastline is 3,260km long. Some of the more famous national parks located throughout the country include Ba Vi in Ha Tay, Cat Ba in Haiphong, Cuc Phuong in Ninh Binh, Bach Ma in Hue, and Cat Tien in Dong Nai. 
  • The War Remnants Museum in Ho Chi Minh City is a necessary, if sobering, place to spend a couple of hours. There’s a fair amount of American military equipment scattered about the grounds – a helicopter, a “Daisy Cutter” bomb, a tank and an attack bomber to name just a few. There’s also a guillotine that was used to execute prisoners. The photographs are the most affecting exhibit – stark black-and-white images of war in their uncensored horror. 
  • The Cu Chi tunnels are a couple of hours outside of Ho Chi Minh City. These tunnels are just a section of a Viet Cong network that once extended from the Cambodian border to the outskirts of the city.
  • Finally, one of the most important things to know before you visit is how to cross the road in Vietnam.
