    In Hoi An it was raining all day today, with short breaks. It started yesterday with heavy rain & thunder but today it was only light rain and actually quite pleasant temperatures of 25 - 28° C. It looks like the weather want change for a week or so.

    Last week it was boiling though - with up to 37°.

    Hi weather watchers in VN.

    I will be arriving in HCMC mid November.
    My plan was to go north through Da Nang, Hanoi, China & then over to Laos and then back down to Thailand then Maylasia ending up in PP and back to HCMC.

    Considering the weather! Should I turn my travel plans around 360 and go the other way?????

    I am really worried about my trip to Vietnam. I think I will be there at the beginning of November. I will start in Saigon and then will go northwards. I have planned this time of year because many people said that there are rains but not so heavy. Will I be able to visit the hill tribes in Sapa for example? I think that will be around November 15th. Thank you.

    Take a look at http://vietnamnet.vn/xahoi/2009/10/871361/ text in Vietnamese and shows pics of Hoi An. This is current weather.

    For flooding in Central VN look out for conditions of: high tides (around lunar calendar last day & mid of each month), onshore winds & seas, a few days of heavy rain.

    Anytime during monsoon season September thru mid-December at earliest (getting later recently too!) stay away from Central VN if you want to be reasonably sure that extreme weather will not affect your holiday plans. This is advise travel agents & operators should be giving!!!!

    Well the whole of Thailand is flooded at the moment and the whole region has had heavy rain for the last 4 months or so. Hear its the worsed floods for 50 years. Basically if its rainy season it rains alot. Personally I like rainy season; cools things down and everything is lovely and green. Next season is cool season. November should be crossing between rainy and cool. Trouble is when the seasons start and end varies quite considerably every year.

    All I can tell you is that it's gorgeous in Hanoi right now! After what seemed like constant rain, the weather has really improved in the last week or so and is sunny and blue. Very unusual for Hanoi. Friends went to Halong at the weekend and had good weather there too. As for Sapa, gracetandil, don't worry! It will probably be a bit chilly but that's not a bad thing. Fog happens all year round.

    I plan to visit Vietnam this november or december. But i was in Vietnam before one. I stay in Hanoi for 4 days followed ny business. Didn't go sightseeing much but the weather is good. It's depend on where will you go in Vietnam? If in the North it may be cool this time coz it's autumn now, a little bit rain in the South. But it's ok to travel. That's what my friend says when i asked him about weather in Vietnam now.:). But It seemed that you have been there already?? How was your trip? Did you book a tour or what? I plan to go to Halong after coming to Hanoi. Is there any suggetion for me? Where did you visit in Vietnam?
