What is the best time to visit Ho Chi Minh City?

The best time to visit Ho Chi Minh City is from December to March. The temperature ranges from 20°C to 32°C. This period marks the dry period in Ho Chi Minh City and the surrounding regions, when temperatures are relatively cool during the day and chilly at night. Many cultural festivals and events take place during this time. Tet, the Vietnamese Lunar New Year, usually falls between late January and mid-February, marking a vibrant and celebratory time in the city. 

Ho Chi Minh City is lively throughout the year. The wet season (May to November) brings higher humidity and regular rainfall, but it doesn't necessarily hinder all activities. If you don't mind occasional showers and humidity, you can still enjoy the city's offerings during this time, often with fewer crowds and lower prices for accommodations.
