Certainly, the weather is one of the most important factors when deciding on your travel destination. If you plan going to Vietnam, there’s nothing about which to worry. Vietnam’s overall climate isn’t just steamy hot like what you frequently see on movies. The general climate falls under the tropic and subtropics climate, yet its diverse topography and stretching geography lets it cover several varied climate zones. The weather tends to vary from region to region and from season to season. Nha Trang in particular is located in Central Vietnam, at the coastal lowlands where the climate comprises long dry season starting from late January to October followed by foggy and rainy climate. However, the weather in Nha Trang, Phan Thiet, Quy Nhon and the rest of the near-the-south coast district experience hot weather all year round.
Luckily, the weather in Nha Trang is suitable for traveling all year round since it is not influenced by the monsoon winds. Unlike in southern Vietnam where the rest of the regions are soaked in water for six months every year, Nha Trang has a warm and beautiful climate almost throughout the year, except in late October to early December. The beach town has beautiful weather from February to October, which is characterized by warm, sunny weather. Rainy season starts from October to December.
The temperature is quite moderate on the entire year, ranging between an average high of 30° C (85 degrees) and an average low of 18° C (65 degrees). During summer months, Nha Trang is quite humid; hence, travelers who are not used to high humidity should avoid visiting the town during the hottest months of the year. Tourists who want to spend good time on the beaches can travel in Nha Trang as early as February. Actually, the best time to dive in the area is commonly during spring months. Oftentimes, traveling during rainy season isn’t suggested. Although it’s not particularly cold, the storms during rainy season can get violent and there’s even risk of typhoon devastation in midst of rainy season. Travelers seeking trips to Nha Trang from October to December should make sure to stay updated with the local weather information prior to their trip.
Perhaps, the best months to visit the town would be from March or April or when the weather in Nha Trang is less windy. The least windy months are April, May and June. In general, Nha Trang isn’t windy enough for windsurfing except in Doc Let Beach in the north (35 km away from Nha Trang), which is generally recommended for expert surfers.
The weather in Nha Trang describes the most stable climate in Vietnam, making it a highly recommended travel destination in the country. With its constant temperatures, year-round low humidity due to the sea breeze and low rainfall, it has become the number one beach town in Vietnam, what with the bars, restaurants, accommodations and shopping places constructed in this wonderful place. Overall, Nha Trang is a year-round tourist resort but it might be wise to skip the two wettest months, October and November.
