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.
