Vietnam is subject to two main seasons, wet and dry, but it can still be visited and enjoyed all year round. The dry season, from November to April, is the most popular time to visit the country, but the wet season isn’t as bad as the label implies, and can actually be a pleasant time to go thanks to lower visitor numbers.
You can get an e-visa for Vietnam online for visits of up to 30 days, the visa is limited to certain entry and exit points but you will be asked to specify these when applying for the visa. For visas longer that 30 days contact the nearest Vietnamese embassy.
Tourist Visas are available on arrival at the main Cambodian airports for $30 and you will also need to arrive with a passport photograph, Visa’s can also be bought online. The visa usually lasts for 30 days, overstaying this can lead to fines and deportation.
