Vietnam is one of the countries divided into two distinct seasons: the rainy season and the dry season. Therefore, Hanoi is no exception, there will also be two distinct rainy and dry seasons. It’s wonderful to come to Hanoi in the dry season, with the sunlight filtering through the trees and the clear water of the famous lakes here bringing a peaceful, pleasant atmosphere.
However, in the rainy season, the path may be a bit difficult because it is slippery. However, you shouldn’t worry too much about your safety when the rainy season comes. However, the weather can affect your schedule as well as the activities you have planned.

If you go to Hanoi in the rainy season, it’s not too bad. Despite not being the best time to join Hanoi Tours, you can still enjoy the beautiful scenery and delicious food. Traveling in the rainy season in Hanoi is not dangerous, you just need to equip raincoats as well as sandals to wade in. Be extra careful, you can have some cold medicine ready. In this weather, you can still visit Hoan Kiem Lake, West Lake, or the old town. Warm dishes like pho or geese with garlic will be even more delicious in such cold rainy weather.
What is the best time to join Hanoi Tours to participate in the most festivals of Hanoi?
Vietnamese people have a saying: “Tháng Giêng là tháng ăn chơi/Tháng Hai hội họp, tháng ba rượu chè”. (“January is a month of fun/Meeting in February, drinking in March.”). This shows that January and February of the lunar calendar (around February to April) are the times when most festivals take place in Vietnam. If you have the opportunity to go around this time, you can participate in many different events imbued with Vietnamese cultural identity.
However, you should avoid going to Hanoi during Tết (Tet – the Lunar New Year). On this occasion, people return to their hometown, the streets are deserted and there is not almost any trading activity happening. So, it will be quite boring if you go to coincide with Tet.
