looking to visit the country will have plenty to see. If you want to
learn about the country’s history, visit Ho Chi Minh’s Mausoleum

wonders like the National Park in Phong Nha-Ke Bang or the Sand Dunes
of Mui Ne. Finally, those looking to sample some lively nightlife
will be well accommodated in big cities like Hanoi and Ho

Haiphong, Can Tho, and Da Nang. Another option is train travel. While
much of the network has not seen expansion since it was first built,
it’s still a great way to see the country while meeting new people.

hottest from March to the start of June, with April being the warmest
month. The rest of June to November is seen as the rainy season,
where downpours can happen daily and the mosquitoes are out in
droves. December to February is generally seen as the best time to
visit, with temperatures in the evenings reaching around 20°C
