Hanoi, like the rest of Vietnam has distinct seasons which bring with them unique weather. Hanoi receives rainfall for almost half the year but the people of this city have learnt to mould their lives around this constant downpour and once you’re here, you will tend to be part of the same harmony. Travelling to Hanoi is a crazy yet fulfilling journey that is sure to leave a warm feeling in your heart.
Autumn: The best time to visit Hanoi is during autumn (October-November) which is also the best time in terms of weather. You won’t be bothered with too much rain and the usually extreme temperature will be mild and non-intrusive in your travel plans. Having said that, accounting for the weather is an essential in your Hanoi trip planner.
Summers: Summers, lasting from May to September, are hot and humid, receiving the majority of the annual 1,680 millimetres (66.1 in) of rainfall.
Winters: The winters, lasting from November to March, are relatively mild, dry (in the first half) or humid (in the second half), while spring (April) can bring light rains. Weather in Hanoi is an integral part of its charm and experience.
