1. The best time to visit Hanoi

Hanoi weather has 4 separate seasons
Spring (February to April)
Summer (April to July)
Autumn (August to October)
Winter (November to February)
Each season Hanoi will have its own beauty, spring weather is cold, and tourists can participate in the festivals at the beginning of the year.
During this time, you can feel the weather is a bit cold. All people are in warm and thick clothes, and the humidity is high. It is not the time for swimming in the sea but great for trekking the high mountains. Although the climate is not good all the time, it is not rainy much. When January passes by, February and March come with warmer weather. Trees rise, and flowers blossom, bring a new color to the city. It is also the time for many festivals in the early years. Tourists can join and visit great places, enjoy Tet Holiday with local people and visit destinations without a noisy atmosphere.
Summer will be hot but will be suitable for visiting the sea and beach in Halong Bay.
Autumn and winter are cool and cold weather is also the time for holidays in Western countries. 
Most visitors will come to visit at the end of the year, which is also the peak season in Hanoi.

  • Hanoi's roads are quite complicated, with many alleys and a bit crazy traffic. Don't forget to bring a hotel card or map to avoid getting lost.

  • Hanoi is very safe, but thefts still happen. Please be careful with valuable things, especially when you visit a crowded area or go out late in the evening.

  • If you visit sacred areas such as Temple, pagodas, or Ho Chi Minh mausoleum should pay attention and wear long clothes.
