When to Start to Explore Central Vietnam?

Compared to the northern parts of the country, Central Vietnam has pretty consistent climate conditions. So, if you want to avoid the unexpected rainfalls, Central Vietnam may be a perfect destination for you. Generally speaking, from January to July, the heart of the country offers hot, sunny weather and not many rainy days. These conditions make this period ideal for visits to beach towns. The weather starts to change in August when the hot temperatures start to combine sudden rainfalls. They normally don’t last longer than a few hours and definitely don’t dramatically impact the warmth of the day.
