Vietnam in October


Vietnam Weather in October

Autumn officially arrives in North Vietnam when October starts: the skies are blue, cooler breezes and bountiful treats. Rain is lesser, the air is drier and temperature drops a little bit further.

The beauty of the northwest in October is in its prime. When you go to higher altitude, the air gets chillier. In central Vietnam cities like Hue, Hoi An and Da Nang, the rain continues but doesn’t make these cities any less beautiful than themselves in any other month.

In the south, the average temperature is fixed at 24-31 degrees Celsius with much less rain.

Where to visit in October

Where you should visit Where you shouldn’t visit
Ha Giang Phong Nha Ke Bang
Hanoi Hoi An
Sapa Coastal beaches when there are typhoons
Halong Bay
Can Tho – Mekong Delta
Ba Be Lake – Ban Gioc Waterfall
Da Lat

Ha Giang appeals to visitors from all over the world with its beauty of golden terraced rice fields and pink fields of buckwheat flowers. Hanoi is best to visit in autumn and trekking in Sapa would be too strenuous when the heat is gone.

In October, Da Lat becomes a romantic foggy town with all the colorful flowers blooming. Ba Be lake and Ban Gioc Waterfall show their full beauty in this time of year.
