Vietnam Climate

Vietnam Climate

Vietnam is located in the tropical and temperate zone. Vietnam’s climate is characterized by high temperature and humidity all year round. North Vietnam, under the impact of the Chinese mainland, has more or less mainland climate. In addition, the Eastern Sea also affects Vietnam’s tropical monsoon climate. The monsoon climate does not spread evenly all over the Vietnamese territory, where there are different regions with different climates. Vietnam’s climate changes by seasons and by regions from the lowland to highland, from North to South and from East to West. Given the strong influence of the Northwest monsoon, the average temperature in Vietnam is lower than many Asian countries located at the same latitude. There are two major climate regions in Vietnam. Northern Vietnam (from Mong Cai to Hai Van pass) has a highly-humid tropical monsoon climate with four distinguishable seasons (spring, summer, autumn and winter) and is influenced by the Northeast and Southeast monsoon. Southern Vietnam (from Hai Van pass to Ha Tien) has a rather moderate tropical climate given the weak influence of monsoon and is characterized by dry and rainy seasons and warm weather all year round. In addition, given the topographical structure, there are some subclimate regions in Vietnam including regions with temperate climate, such as Sa Pa (Lao Cai province), Da Lat (Lam Dong province) and regions with mainland climate such as Lai Chau, Son La, all of which are ideal places for tourism. The average temperature in Vietnam varies between 21.
