When is the best time to travel to Vietnam?
Vietnam’s tropical monsoon climate means that the best time to travel differs from each location. Generally the further south you go the more consistent the temperature will remain compared to the coast and the north which experiences vast seasonal change.
December to April are the driest months of the year in Ho Chi Minh, March to May experiences the highest temperatures up to 40 degrees Celsius before the monsoon arrives from May to October.
Nha Trang and Dan-nang’s weather are fully controlled by the northeast monsoon. The rainy season in Nha Trang begins in November and earlier in Da-nang, from September until February when it’s best for indoor team building and corporate seminars.
February to May provide the most comfortable temperatures the best time for outdoor beach team building with the hottest weather from June to August.
Hanoi experiences four seasons throughout the year with spring from February to April and autumn from September to November offer the most pleasant conditions, the least rainfall and are ideal for outdoor team building.
With summer bringing hot temperatures and heavy rains in-between and the cold winter season of December, spring and autumn are definitely the best times to travel to the north.

What is unique about Vietnam?
Vietnam is home to whole host of man-made and natural unique features none more so than those dating back to the turbulent times of the Vietnam War.
One of the most well-known is the underground network of catacombs in the Cu Chi district of Ho Chi Minh city used by the North Vietnamese Viet Cong resistance, the tunnels served as operations bases and protection from the American occupiers during the war.
The tunnels and their occupants survived many attacks in the area known as the iron triangle before the Americans eventually found a way through by carpet bombing with tunnels collapsing or being exposed however it was too late to save the US who withdrew in 1972 and South Vietnam collapsed in 1975 when the North finally claimed the south and established communist rule.
Today, two of the tunnels Ben Dinh and Ben Duoc have been preserved as war memorials and visitors can experience walking through the cramped conditions as well as the command center and shooting range.
Home to dense jungle, this area is perfect for an outdoor adventure team building program based on the life of the Viet Cong!
