    I am travleeing to Vietnam for the first time in January and am really keen to make Hanoi my first stop, however I have read various reports online detailing the terriable flooding in nothern and central regions of vietnam and was wondering if anyone can advise whether it is appropriate and or possible to travel to the affected regions in the near future? Any details on affected areas who advise from anyone who has travelled there recently would be much appreciated!

    Shouldn't be too wet in Jan in Hanoi - a bit cool maybe

    Hoi An / Hue areas should be same, but warmer

    Hanoi can be cool/foggy in Jan, but very pleasant. The place that can be downright COLD is up the the NW Highlands - Sapa. But, don't let that stop you from going - it's worth the effort.

    Hi there,

    We just returned from a month in Vietnam, all is good flooding has mostly subsided aside from the usual up and down river action in Hoi An.

    We spent three days in Hanoi right across from Hoan Kiem Lake and did a Perfume Pagoda tour on Yen Stream, no problems there either.

    The odd road was washed out in Sapa area but I think that is the norm, quickly repaired so traffic could get through.

    Hope that helps
