They say that the south of the country has the best beaches, but if you are travelling around the north of the country you can also find some nice beaches, so don’t fret.
When is the best time to plan a beach holiday? Well in the southern Vietnam region the best time to enjoy the beach is between the months of October and December as the weather at that time is hot and humid, with only a few short lasting showers. In the northern Vietnam region the best time to enjoy the beach is between the months of May and August.
