Vietnam Weather in May


May is the last of the 'all-rounder months' in Vietnam. You've still got the best of all the beaches without the crowds of earlier in the year.

Vietnam is a country with more than 2000 miles of coastline and three different weather systems. Because of differences in latitude and the marked variety in topographical relief, the Vietnam weather tends to vary considerably from place to place.

Mountainous Far North
Sapa, Ha Giang, Bac Ha

The climate in Sapa and Vietnams far north-west is divided into two seasons: the dry season runs from October to late March and the wet season runs from April to September. In the mountains conditions remain good with May being a good month to explore the Sapa region whilst Ha Giang to the east starts to see more rain.

Visit Sapa!
March - May and September - November are the two recommended periods to visit Sapa if you want a more laid-back natural and rejuvenating holiday. March to May is great time to come to Sapa, with sunny days, good weather and fresh air.
