When to Travel
Any time of year is okay to visit Vietnam, but November to May is probably the best weather, although North Vietnam can get a bit cool, especially in the mountains.
Everyone needs a visa to enter Vietnam. You can either obtain one through Vietnam embassies overseas, or via a pre-approved visa-on-arrival, when you book your tour through Red Lantern Journeys.
If you apply for a visa in advance through an embassy, it's best to start about 2 months before your departure. You can find out what's needed and start the process by following this link:
