    Hello lovely people,

    We land in Hanoi in two days with the intention of travelling down the coast over the next 30 days in order to make our way to Cambodia (not the first people to do this route...)

    The issue we have is that we have heard the weather in North and Central Vietnam isn't the best at the moment. Would we encounter better weather along our travels were we to fly straight to HCMC once we get to Hanoi? This way we would travel up to coast back up to the North over a 30 day period and then possibly fly to Cambodia.

    With Tet falling during our travels I'm wondering if such a drastic change of plans would really benefit us, would be interested to hear some thoughts!

    I wouldn't change your existing plan -- Hanoi is cold this time of year, but it will still be pretty cold at the end of the month too. Also, as you mention with Tet falling in your travels you may have some challenges rebooking stuff. We have a story covering planning around Tet here.

    I agree with somtam. I'm here (Hanoi) and yes, it's cold, wet and miserable but it is unlikely to get much better for at least a month. And you can still enjoy it, despite the weather, and then defrost as you head south.
