The Best Things To Do In Vietnam In June

In general, due to Vietnam’s long and S-shaped terrain, central Vietnam still has cool weather has a high chance of sunny days in June, making it ideal for a beach vacation. Rain falls in small spurts, making travel to Northern Vietnam possible. Outdoor activities are often not suited in Southern Vietnam due to the almost constant rain.

  • Enjoy Da Nang International Fireworks Festival. International fireworks teams perform amazing displays along the Han River on certain nights during the month of June. Related article: Best Time To Visit Da Nang For Weather, Festivals, And Tourism.
  • Visit Hoi An and go on a sunset sail on the Thu Bon River. If at all feasible, plan your vacation around the middle of a lunar month, when the Full Moon Lantern Festival displays this historic city at its most beautiful. This festival is highlighted by floating paper lanterns. After the lights are off and the ancient town is illuminated by thousands of colorful colored lanterns, explore the nearby streets.
  • Immerse yourself in the splendor of Phong Nha Ke Bang National Park and explore some of Vietnam’s most enticing limestone caverns, including Son Doong Cave, Heaven Cave, En, Tu Lan, and Phong Nha Cave. In this dry, sunny month, you can embrace the breathtaking environment and all the exciting things it has to offer by embarking on an adventure with the locals for one day or two days and one night.

  • Witness the green turtle nesting season on Con Dao Island’s beautiful white sandy beaches (peaking between June and September). You will need to be patient and lucky to catch sight of the turtles, which can arrive as late as two or three in the morning.

Insider tips: Bring a light coat in case the temperature falls at night, especially in mountainous locations in the Central Highlands. Sunscreen, a sunhat, or an umbrella are also recommended for sun protection. Mosquitoes are also at their peak since it’s the rainy and wet season, so insect repellent is a wise precaution.

Vietnam Weather In June FAQs

Vietnam is still a fantastic place to travel in June, for summer vacations although the weather may be unpredictable and fairly cold. Peak temperatures, which are still dry and sunny, are already being experienced throughout Vietnam.

Early June is a relatively uncrowded time, with the least international visitors of any month. But, by mid-June, Vietnamese domestic travel takes off as schools break and families take holidays, indicating the start of the summer high season.

If you want to go on a beach vacation, it’s important to prepare ahead of time, as beach resorts like Nha Trang and Phu Quoc, as well as popular sites like Halong Bay, become overcrowded by late June. To avoid crowds, book your accommodations as soon as possible. And don’t anticipate any bargains – prices are higher in the summer.
