From June to July, it is simply hot. In Hanoi, the heat is made worse by the volume of traffic and sometime the dust. In Hue and Hoi An, the heat is aggravated by the intense amount of sun light. In Ho Chi Minh City, the heat is coupled with frequent rain. But do they not make a unique travel experience that not everyone can go through?
If you cannot stand the heat, there are always places for you to escape to such as Tam Dao, Sapa and Dalat, where the highland yearns a cool and pleasant climate.
What to expect if you travel to Vietnam in June and July
June and July is the high season for domestic travel so most major attractions are packed with people. It is also the monsoonal season which makes it not as comfortable for a good swim due to the constant wave-ful ocean. There are no significant holidays happening in June and July but because of the large volume of domestic tourists, it is wise to book your ticket well in advance to meet your travel agenda.
Hue festival often takes place between late June and mid-July. It is one of the highlighted cultural events that are well attended by both local and tourists alike. There are grand music shows and city-wide celebration of Hue culture: many are held in the courtyard of the Old Citadel. The festival organizers often maintain a website with detail information on festival schedule and ticket details so stay tuned.
