Best time to be there
Regional climate differences mean that there is no best time; try September to December to avoid the humidity in the north, December to April to miss the rains in the south and December to March is perfect for trips to the Central highlands. Catch the Trung Thu Moon festival in September or October for traditional lion and dragon dances.

MORE INFORMATION ABOUT VIETNAM
Our Vietnam holidays leave a major impression on our guests. How do we know? Well the torrent of feedback isn't just letters; we've also received poems, including an 18-verse epic from the Osterman family. As well as charting their diverse tour from cycle rides and helicopter flights to imperial feasts and tropical beaches, it deserves special mention for rhyming 'rubber plantation' with 'amazing vacation'.
Although less lyrical, other A&K guests' correspondence has been full of praise, particularly for our guide Pedro, who added an impromptu, superbly informative tour of Haiphong into an itinerary running ahead of schedule, and for Minh Chau, whose brilliantly clear historical explanations brought the country vividly to life for one client's young grandsons. They described their experiences as 'life altering'.
