June is still a good month to travel in Vietnam despite it being a slightly mixed bag in terms of weather. The centre of Vietnam has now hit peak temperatures and remains dry and bright. The south is now in the midst of the wet season with daily downpours to be expected, usually in the afternoon, whilst the north is well into summer mode with high temperatures and rain being the norm. Visitor numbers relatively low and the central beaches still promise a great deal of sunshine. Trekking is off the cards for most, with more rain spreading through the northern mountains & central highlands.
Hanoi, Halong Bay, Sapa, Ha Giang Ninh Binh, Mai Chau & Cuc Phuong
The north of the country is firmly in the middle of its summer by June meaning you can expect plenty of hot weather as well as rain and at times storms (avg temp: 30 °C). The mountains to the north are also very wet with extensive trekking unadvisable throughout the month.
Hoi An, Danang, Hue, Nha Trang, Quy Nhon, Dalat & Central Highlands
What’s to say – it’s sunshine and blue skies all the way for the centre of Vietnam with the beaches of Hoi An, Danang and Nha Trang at their best (avg temp: 30 °C). Further north Hue is also is also enjoying good weather. To the west up in the Central Highlands and in Dalat rainfall is still on the increase although travel is still possible.
Ho Chi Minh City, Phan Thiet, Mui Ne, Mekong Delta & Phu Quoc
The south is now firmly into its wet season, thankfully however this is unlikely to be severe; whilst the showers will be slightly heavier than in previous months you can still expect plenty of dry and bright daylight hours (avg temp: 28°C).
