February’s weather in detail

North Vietnam

Hanoi, Halong Bay, Sapa, Ha Giang, Mu Cang Chai, Ninh Binh & Mai Chau

Whilst you can expect plenty of sunshine and clear blue skies, temperatures in the north will be quite cool (avg temp: 17 °C). Rainfall is at its lowest in February although a misty haze is not unusual, especially in coastal areas and around Halong Bay. In the far north conditions are dry but chilly and sometimes foggy, especially at night, so suitable clothing is recommended.

Central Vietnam

Hoi An, Danang, Hue, Nha Trang, Quy Nhon, Dalat & Central Highlands

Summer returns to central parts of Vietnam with the beaches of Hoi An and Danang likely to be basking in sunshine with just a light sprinkling of rain expected from time to time (avg temp: 25°C). Hue is also warm and dry whilst in Dalat and the Central Highlands the climate will be cooler due to altitude and warm clothing is recommended for the evenings, however conditions are good for trekking and adventure activities. Further south the beaches of Nha Trang are also enjoying blue skies and higher temperatures.

South Vietnam

Ho Chi Minh City, Phan Thiet & Mui Ne, Mekong Delta, Long Hai & Ho Tram, Con Dao & Phu Quoc

Good weather is expected in the south throughout February. The beaches of Phan Thiet & Mui Ne; Long Hai & Ho Tram, and the southern islands of Phu Quoc and Con Dao are experiencing clear blue skies, plenty of sunshine and little or no rain (avg temp: 27 °C). Temperatures remain high but comfortable with the really hot weather at the break of the wet season still a few months off (avg temp: 28°C).
February is a good month for diving around Con Dao, with clear waters and visibility averaging 20-30 metres.
