Best Time to Travel to Hanoi
Hanoi enjoys two separate peak seasons each year: one during the Northern Hemisphere's summer from mid-June through August, and the other during the same season in the Southern Hemisphere, from November through the first half of February. Oddly, each of these times coincides with when Hanoi historically has the wettest weather, but that doesn’t keep the tourists from visiting.
October and April are considered Hanoi's shoulder seasons, when tourism tapers off, but the weather is still more pleasant than in the off months. April tends to be one of the most appealing times of year to visit Hanoi, as the weather is warm and comfortable. And in October after the monsoon season has concluded, temperate and dry days are ideal for outdoor activities. During each of these months, temperatures generally range from a low of 21 degrees Celsius to a high of around 27 or 28 degrees.
Flights to Hanoi are typically cheaper in the city's off seasons. From mid-February to March, shortly after the Vietnamese New Year celebrations, crowds tend to die down and temperatures remain low, but there's still plenty to do around town. Monsoons are common from May through mid-June, and continue through the peak season and into September, when flights and hotel rates are commonly reduced.
