Spring from February to April and autumn from October-November is the best time to visit the city. Hanoi has a humid subtropical climate with lots of precipitation that is common in northern Vietnam. It means that the summers are scorching, coupled with rainfall and high humidity.
Hanoi’s summer months are also its monsoon months. Winters, on the other hand, are cold and dry. Try to plan your trip around Dong Nhan Temple Festival, Mid-Autumn Festival and Liberation day when things are bright and festive all around the city. However, one can experience the true cultural fiesta during the Tet festival and Co Loa festival in the month of February to get a taste of authentic Hanoi style.
However, a word of caution! Hanoi’s weather can get unpredictable, especially with the growing influence of Global warming. The weather can change anytime, yet there is an overall generalised understanding of its climatic conditions that can be kept in mind while travelling.
