Vietnam Weather in July

July is a hot month of the year in Vietnam with both temperature and humidity is high. It is also the raining season in the North and South of Vietnam and the beginning of typhoon season with storms occasionally hit the coast of the country and cause rain for a few days at affected place. Anyway, most of the time is dry with sunlight and since Vietnam is a long country so you can always find some places to see even there is a typhoon.

The North of Vietnam is in middle of summer. Precipitation is higher than previous month but it does not mean you can see rain everyday. Rains just come may be once or twice a week for a short time, normally one or two hours then stop.  Hanoi, Ninh Binh and surroundings are expected to be hot whilst Halong Bay and Cat Ba Island are more pleasant thanks to the ocean breeze.

The far north mountainous area such as Sa Pa and Ha Giang is cooler thanks to its high elevation but the wet might make trekking difficult. The same thing happens in the area of Da Lat and Central Highland.

Central Vietnam including Hue, Da Nang, Hoi An, Quy Nhon and Nha Trang is still in the dry season with temperatures remain high at the average of 33ºC. All beaches offer excellent condition with plenty of sunshine and blue skies expected throughout the month.

The South of Vietnam is in the middle of the wet season with downpours happen almost every day or two for short time in the afternoon. Anyway, the rest of the day time is expected to be dry and bright. Average temperature this time stay between 31 - 32ºC

How to do and what to expect if travel to Vietnam in July

If you plan to travel to Vietnam in July then remember that the hot weather is the fact you should consider. Anyway, that is not a big thing to worry about if you know how to plan your itinerary properly. Some people might say that summer months including July are the best time to visit Vietnam since it is sunny and clear.

It is the best way to take an easy classic style for your vacation. Visiting to most of places is possible but avoid burdening yourself with to much activities. Beach relaxing, comfort resort and cruises should be good choices.

When you travel in the hot weather, just dress light, loose fitting and drink enough water. Sun hat or an umbrella will help to protect you from the sun and sunglasses and sun cream are necessary to avoid any bad effect of the tropical sunlight.

Although there may be short downpours in the south and north, many people see no rain at all.

This time is really good to enjoy beaches along the country at their best condition. Long biking or outdoor adventures (except in water and the sea) are not recommended but walking and easy style travel is more than appropriate.

Due to the wet, trekking in mountainous is sometime rather difficult and unadvisable. This time is the low season for foreign tourist so you most likely to have better prices for some services such as restaurant, bar and accommodation in most of cities.
