When to Travel
Any time of year is okay to visit Vietnam, but November to May is probably the best weather. North Vietnam can be a bit cool in December through early Februrary, especially in the mountains. Ha Long Bay can also get a bit foggy for the junk cruises during that time. The central coast is subject to occasional typhoons and tropical storms from July through October. The monsoon season, which consists of near daily thunderstorms lasts from June through September.
Everyone needs a visa to enter Vietnam. You can either obtain one through Vietnam embassies overseas, or via a pre-approved visa-on-arrival, which is arrange by Red Lantern Journeys when you book your tour through us.
If you apply for a visa in advance through an embassy, it's best to start the process about 2 months before your departure. You can find out what's needed and start the process by following this link:
