Nha Trang Weather Overview

Lying in the centre of Vietnam, like other cities, Nha Trang is dominated by the subtropical climate, which features two distinct seasons in a year: the dry and wet or rainy season. Usually, the two are supposed to be harsh with extreme heat waves in the dry and storms in the rainy season.

However, due to being located along the Southern coast, the city is also affected by the oceanic climate, which makes its weather relatively mild. Two seasons in Nha Trang, therefore, turn out to be not too different from one another in temperature, condition, and climatical phenomena.

Nha Trang Weather

Dry season

The dry season occurs from January to August. During this time, the sky is blue with sunshine, the weather is comfortable because of less humidity and rainfall levels. In particular, the temperature in the early half of the year ranges from 21°C to 33°C, which is not boiling like in the North but pretty warm and cosy. Till July and August, it starts to get hotter and sometimes reaches its peak at 40°C.

Likewise, in the first 6 months, rains are unlikely to come with an average rainfall of 50 mm. Then, July and August set in with higher temperatures, making humidity increase accordingly. Rains in these two months also come more frequently and reach an average rainfall of 90 to 100 mm.

In general, Nha Trang's dry season mostly features warm and little rain, which is pretty favourable for travel activities such as sunbathing, snorkelling, scuba diving, surfing, and swimming. The season also parallels the peak tourism season, so you will have a chance to join in the vibrant lifestyle of the city.


Rainy season

The rainy season is characterized by periodic showers, cloudy sky, and increased humidity levels. The season sets in from September to December every year with the average temperature ranging from 25°C to 33°C. In fact, it is still quite warm and shows no change changes compared to the temperature in the dry season.

The only different thing is that rains fall more frequently and heavily, which will prevent you from taking part in outdoor activities. In this season, especially in the last three months of the year, the rainfall can reach the level of 3 digits (over 100 mm).

Also, though the city is not severely affected by the subtropical climate, storms and extreme weather are still likely to set in. October and November is the time which arrive such phenomena. Therefore, on coming to Nha Trang during the months, you can face heavy rains, flooding, etc.
