When to visit Vietnam with kids
In general, the best time to visit Vietnam is from October till the end of April. However, as traveling with your kids, you should come to the most beautiful months: March and April. These two months is the perfect time to travel from North to South Vietnam with less rain and cool weather, advisable for outdoor activities - which your kids absolutely don’t want to miss. The only problem is that March and April are springtimes, therefore, if any member of your family has a pollen allergy, the best choice is waiting till the end of April or visiting Vietnam in the winter (before February).
Although March and April are the finest time to travel to Vietnam, most parents tend to bring their kids here on Christmas and New Year holidays - right in the middle of winter in this country. At this time, the rain season in Central and Southern Vietnam has just ended and the weather is warmer with sunshine almost every day - extreme weather for playing outdoors, visiting amusement parks, and enjoying short swimming, kayaking, or standing paddle boarding.
On the other hand, in the North, the weather is not that good for kids, especially their health. While in the mountainous area, the temperature rarely lower than0oC (32oF), the lowest temperature in other areas here is about7oC (44.5oF), which sounds much warmer than winter in the United States, Australia, New Zealand, and many other European countries. However, the most significant problem here is the high humidity in the air and when it combines with the cold weather in North Vietnam winter, you will feel like freezing and your kids are easy to catch a cold or flu.
