Welcome to Vietnam
Vietnam never ceases to amaze with its stunning nature and charming cultural heritages
Sense the Timeless Charm of Vietnam
Located in the heart of Southeast Asia, Vietnam always prides itself on being a geographically, historically and culturally diverse country. Vietnam entices both domestic and international tourists with the staggering landscape of hills and mountains covered with tropical evergreen rainforests, ranging from the misty Northern mountainous area to the majestic Central Highlands. Highlighted by the ancient Hanoi Capital with its 1,000 years of history in the north and the bustling, dynamic Ho Chi Minh City with a complex of modern French-colonial architectures in the south, Vietnam is also blessed with over 3,000 km of stunning coastline which forms world-class beaches famed for clear water, infinite stretches of powdery sand and tropical islands like Nha Trang, Danang, and Phu Quoc.
Hidden behind the splendor of these hotspots are fishing village full of floating houses and multi-shaped rafts in the morning veil of mist on Halong Bay; hospitable cyclo drivers roaming along the narrow streets of Hoi An Ancient Town and the bucolic, peaceful countrysides of Mekong Delta where the farmers work hard in the rice fields with buffaloes and plows.
Undoubtedly, Vietnam will meet each interest of each traveler and leave an abiding impression in their minds.

Weather & Best time to Travel
Vietnam has the humid tropical monsoon climate with two distinct seasons: wet and dry
The wet season, characterized by the significant amount of precipitation, often falls on the period from April to October while the dry season lasts from November to March with cooler, drier days. However, the climate varies by region, which means that the duration and the signs of each season will vary in each geographic location. Therefore, if the weather isn’t great in one area, it may be perfect in another and vice versa.
In January, North Vietnam is blessed with the prime of winter which brings the driest days of the year with almost no rain. You can tour around Hanoi and other cities in the sunshine without feeling tired as temperatures will remain quite cool (avg. 15 – 18 °C). However, in the northern mountainous areas, the weather is truly chilly, especially at night, so don’t forget to prepare warm clothes. Besides, the foggy haze is not unusual in Halong Bay, Cat Ba island and other beaches, which hinders you from enjoying the scenery.
As you head to Central Vietnam, the weather gets warmer and warmer. In Hue, Da Nang, and Nha Trang, the wet season is about to draw to an end with temperatures varying between 20 and 23°C. Da Lat and the Central Highlands also no longer have prolonging rains but the weather is cooler in the early morning and at night.
Meanwhile, January is one of the most ideal months to visit Ho Chi Minh City and the Southern provinces. It is in the middle of the dry season with clear blue skies and little rain across the region. You can immerse yourself in the sunshine and water activities within the islands and coastal areas such as Phu Quoc, Mui Ne, Phan Thiet, etc
