What is the weather like in Nha Trang in December? Does it have something special? The following article will make you clear. Let's follow it carefully.


Nha Trang, the city of running beaches, has for years attracted thousands of tourists to come and spend their vacation. In each month, the city itself features a different beauty that will bring you a different experience. December is no exception. These differences are made by the weather. On planning to visit Nha Trang, you may want to know more about what the weather in Nha Trang is like in December. Let’s check it out. 


Nha Trang Weather in December 

Like many other provinces in Vietnam, Nha Trang is located in the tropical monsoon climate, which is supposed to be hot and humid all year round. However, due to lying along the coast, the city itself features weather that is dominated by oceanic climate, making it rather mild. There are two seasons, dry sets in between January to August, and the wet or rainy season that takes place from September to December. The two are not too different from one another in temperature, rainfall, or humidity. Therefore, you can feel quite comfortable getting in any season. 

December in Nha Trang parallels the wet weather. During this time, it is cold with the temperature ranging from 22°C to 27°C. As December is not the peak of coldness which is November, you will feel a bit comfortable. Besides, the temperature will decrease throughout the month, so if you come in late December, remember to bring along some warm clothes. 

Additionally, there are rains at this time. However, as falling near the end of the rainy season, weather will not be easily affected by sudden rains or storms. This explains why precipitation is 27%, the rainfall is 93 mm, and both decrease throughout the month. 

Weather in December is quite comfortable to travel with normal temperature and favorable conditions. However, one thing you should take note of is that rains and cold air can interfere with your travel plans. Indeed, many people prefer to come to Nha Trang at this time because of the peace and romance that is hard to get anywhere.
