Autumn is the best time to visit Hanoi

Unlike Saigon, Hanoi has four seasons, and as the city’s in the northern hemisphere, that means the chilly winter starts in December and steaming summer hovers around July and August. It’s impossible to give firm predictions of the Hanoi weather each month, or even each season, as temperatures, rainfall and sunshine can change from day to day.

However, the best time to visit Hanoi is Autumn. During autumn, Hanoi seems more relaxed than any time of the year. Leaves are falling on the pathways and there are remnants of bloomed flowers from the past Hanoi climate. Everything is just so beautiful. Every scene is worth a postcard snapshot and it’s a sin not to bring a decent camera during your visit.

Before knowing about what Autumn in Hanoi can offer, AZ Local Trip would like to introduce you the 4 seasons in Hanoi and special events that come with each season.
