April takes us towards the end of Vietnam’s very peak season from a weather perspective however this can come with the numerous advantages associated with lower visitor-numbers. Whilst the north is now heading towards its hot, wet summer you can still expect plenty of dry days. The beaches in the centre of the country are still at their very best and whilst rainfall starts to become more likely in the now very hot south; clear dry days are more prevalent.
Unfollow the herd - travel in Vietnam during April and enjoy fewer crowds, better availability, and help to spread the economic benefits of tourism.
