Ha Giang Weather and Visibility in late December/early January

Posted by gatoguts on 9/7/2019 at 18:02

I was just wondering if anyone who's been to Ha Giang in late December/early January can comment on the weather conditions and visibility. I don't mind so much the colder weather, but I'm concerned that foggy conditions may make the visibility so poor that I can't see the beautiful views very well. Also, if you took a motorbike, was it uncomfortable being on the motorbike for long periods of time in the cold weather?

Can be foggy both months and cold in January, ten coldest month up there with February (I have had 5° C in Dong Van mid-February) ; motorbiking under 10-15° is no ball of cherries, especially that cafés and restaurants are not heated on the way (locals warm themselves with heavy jackets and rice alcohol). However, there is a real climate change, much hotter here : in May, we have had temperatures of 35-45° in Hanoi, which are temperatures of July and August, unheard of before. So, before you go, you check the weather by typing "Weather Ha Giang" on Googles, then click on "Accuweather" and decide accordingly
