Weather in Vietnam in June

In June, the weather is a blend of hot summers and plentiful monsoons in Vietnam. The country is less visited in the first half of the month as compared to other appropriate months, so it's a golden period to go and rejuvenate with your family and friends in Vietnam. Different parts of the country experience a range of temperatures, but 30 degrees is the average temperature that hovers over Vietnam in June. 

Northern Mountain Region - Sapa, Ha Giang, Bac Ha, Mu Cang Chai, Haiphong

The mountainous region of Vietnam gets a little wet in June. Although the rains are short, it is not advised to choose the peaks for trekking. On the brighter side, traveling to the mountain region in the first half of June is a relief from the scorching sun.

North Vietnam - Hanoi, Halong Bay, Cuc Phuong, Mai Chau & Ninh Binh

June marks the beginning of Typhoon Season in North Vietnam, but there are variations in some regions. The weather is warm, and occasional rain with temperatures ranging from 26-34°C appropriate to hit beaches covered by architectural sites and modern museums. This part receives relatively less precipitation than the southern part of Vietnam.

Central Vietnam - Hoi An, Danang, Hue, Dalat, Quy Nhon & Nha Trang

Central Vietnam is perfect for June. The sky is sunny and clear, with dry winds, with temperatures ranging from 26-35°C. Sunscreens and sunshades are also necessary if you travel to central cities. Hue is the warmest at 31°C while Dalat receives occasional downpours in June, making outdoor little hurdling.

South Vietnam - Ho Chi Minh City, The Mekong Delta, Phu Quoc and Con Dao, Phan Thiet & Mui Ne, Ho Tram & Long Hai

In June, South Vietnam receives a good amount of rain, but it is unlikely to go rough. Although there is occasional rain, the weather is warm and humid, with temperatures ranging from 26-35°C. Green Turtles are seen on Con Dao Beach in South Vietnam in June, as this is their nesting season.

The spectacular night view on the 14th night of every month in Hoi An, Vietnam, is worth experiencing as the city celebrates the festival of lights. Lighting lanterns are considered to be a good luck and fortune charm in Vietnam. Hoi An Lantern festival is considered to be an incredible moment to follow the rituals of worshipping deceased relatives. The festival not only brings closeness and happiness but is a wise method to save electricity.

Visitors and locals gather at An Hoi Bridge and on the banks of the Hoai River as the sunset begins to enjoy the luring food of Vietnam. The view is the best in the ancient town area of Hoi An, where natives, shops, and bars light paper lanterns around 9 pm. Families give each other presents like flowers, food, and fake money in the belief of future prosperity.

Best Places to Visit in Vietnam in June

Why visit in June?
  • In Northern Vietnam, green fields emit energetic vibes, with new rice crops swaying in June. This month is recognized as Falling Water Season in Vietnam, where water runs from one terrace to another. Villages alongside the Red River Delta are brilliantly picturesque.
  • The tortoise is the only living creature worshipped by the Vietnamese out of four sacred animals. June is the nesting month for Green Turtles spotted at multiple Con Dao Islands.
  • Because of the monsoon, try to avoid trekking in the mountainous region of Vietnam; instead, head to the beaches. June is the summer vacation month in schools in Vietnam, so expect crowded beaches after the middle of the month. It is advised to book your accommodations and beach tours in the first half of Vietnam. However, there won’t be any bargaining entertained.
