    Has anybody spent any time in the central coastal region of vietnam in October? All the guides say this is the time of the highest rainfall, with storms and possibly typhoons.
    On a continuum from 1. the old cliche a 20-minute shower once a day then it's fine to 2. chucking it down without cease for weeks on end - how wet is it please?

    Posted from within Vietnam.

    I live in Da nang and have experienced a lot of weather. The first October there was no rain, the second October there were two Typhoons. Rule of thumb says it is the rainiest time of the year and I think it usually is. It is still pretty warm but it can be wet. Hoi An can flood and all the tour boat operaters have shut up shop by then. If you do still plan to come check out www.inhoian.com for Hoi An info.

    Don't expect completely dry weather in March, either, but at least it won't be hard enough to be classified as a typhoon. I spent 11 days in N. Vietnam, and 3 more in Central VN in March '14 - pretty overcast with light rain this year. Weather patterns are changing worldwide these days. I can just say that March in VN is pretty darn awesome, and it remains my favorite month. Late November-early December is also very good, by the way.
