I'm planning my trip to Vietnam over Christmas / New Year, a large part of which I want to spend on/around the beaches, but generall want to keep the sun on my back. How far North shoudl I consider in Vietnam before it starts to get colder/wetter around late December / early January?

It seems like north will be a bit chilly, middle is punished by rains and typhoons, but south will be warm and sunny. I think the climate average is explained here in travel fish - if I remember correctly... Anyway, you can always google it. Should be an easy find.

I've done the google thing, but not found a clear answer, hence raising it here. I guess the real question is where is the line drawn above which you wouldn't choose to travel if you wanted to stay in the sun?

Thanks - good new then, I was expecting the break to be further south than that...

Dec & Jan it is normally cold in the North from Ha Noi to Hue, about the South is sunny and warmer than.
However, depending on your date of arrival, the weather maybe sunny in the North.
It is from 15degree in Ha Noi. In Mountain Area in Sapa sometimes lower than.
I'm in Hanoi in late December and boy howdy is it chilly here.
The Ha Long Bay tour operators all advertise kayaking, wake-boarding and such, but damned if I want to set foot in the water when it's already this cold out of it!
