Vietnam weather in Dec
As one of the best months to visit Vietnam, December brings favorable conditions for this country. It is often cold in the North, especially in mountainous areas but many people enjoy trekking in this weather. Rainfall is on a decrease in Central regions. The South is now dry and cool and beaches are at their best.
Winter starts to bring coldness and the average temperature of 19°C may drop to 12 or 13°C only. You can expect very little rain and sometimes snow in the far north. December is the season with good climatic conditions for the racing mountainous flowers to bloom the most brilliantly. Halong is also an attractive destination with clear skies and blue sea. Do not forget to bring carry clothing and even hand-cream when entering Vietnam this season.
If the first half of the month still brings the Central much rain and even storms, the conditions start to improve in the second part with significantly less rain. You can expect more rainfall in Hue than in Danang and Hoian. The average temperature remains low at around 24°C. There’s still much rain in Nha Trang. Conditions are excellent for trekking and adventure activities in Dalat and Central Highlands with dry and clear days. Do bring warm clothes with you to cope with cold weather especially at night.
With an average temperature of about 26°C, the lowest in the year, December is considered amongst the best weather months with blue skies and very little rain. It’s a great choice to spend time on beaches of Phu Quoc, Phan Thiet and Mui Ne with plenty of sunshine.
