Best Time To Travel In Hoi An

Hoi An is one of the country’s picture-perfect places, but starting in September, tropical storms are likely to hit Central Vietnam hard. March is an excellent time to see Hoi An when the fields, gardens, and streets are flooded with bright blossoms and soothing greens. From May to August, the town can be hot, and you’ll want to head to the beach to cool off. In the late months of the year, from September to November, Hoi An sees a lot of rain and even a few small floods. The temperatures begin to dip and reach their coldest point in January, warming up just before the Vietnamese new year.
