Central Vietnam is characterized by hot and humid yet mostly dry weather from mid-January to late August, with temperatures often reaching the mid-30’s °C.
Rainfall increases in the ‘winter’ months, with October and November typically being the wettest times of the year and the most likely to be impacted by typhoons.
Despite their proximity to one another, weather can often vary significantly between Hue and Hoi An on any given day due to the mountain range that separates them. This is especially true earlier in the year.
Heading south from Hoi An, Quy Nhon shares a similar weather pattern, though its dry season tends to be slightly longer.
In the south of Central Vietnam, Nha Trang has the longest dry season which typically runs from January to September. During this time, guests can expect high temperatures and little rain. The rainy season runs from October to early December with almost half the annual rainfall falling in October and November.
Dalat, meanwhile, enjoys a very different climate profile due to the high elevation of the central highlands. It is wettest from June to October. It is drier from November to May, and coldest between December and January.
