This article covers weather and travel tips for June in Vietnam, including average temperatures, rainfall, and tips on travel costs, what to wear, and the best places to visit.
Vietnam Weather in June: Overview
In June, most of Vietnam begins its hot and humid rainy season, with about 20 rainy days for the month. The temperature varies between 26°C and 35°C (79 and 95 °F) on average.
Thanks to Vietnam's long and S-shaped geography, Central Vietnam still enjoys a high possibility of sunny days in June and is good for a beach vacation.
Traveling to Northern Vietnam is possible, as the rain usually comes in short bursts.
But in Southern Vietnam, outdoor activities are generally not suitable in the seemingly continuous rain.

Seeing Bangkok with ease
In Bangkok, our tour guide, Ying, was wonderful. She navigated all the sights with ease, gave us interesting tidbits on Thai culture and history, helped us pick the right food at all the restaurants, and was just a pleasure to be around. We had a great time, and it was so nice to not have to worry about any of the details.More

Thailand, Singapore, Bali
In Thailand, Tanny and Nori(Suparp), were both incredible! They were both fun, funny, and full of knowledge and made sure we got the full experience. They went the extra mile and always made sure we had cold bottled water and towels to cleanse our hands. In Singapore, Nicole was an absolute gem. She was so kind and knowledgeable and guided us in the right direction to make our day as enjoyable as possible. She helped us choose a top notch local lunch and coffee spot in China Town and taught us so much about the country! In Bali, Emon was an absolute joy. He was very knowledgeable and kind and absolutely made sure we were feeling comfortable and was willing to be flexible with us. He was fun to converse with and made our time traveling between destinations so enjoyable! I cannot recommend Asia Highlights enough! Accommodations, travel arrangements and guided tours were all a breeze.More

Large multi-generational holiday in Thailand
The holiday was wonderful. Our guides, Mr Monchai (Bangkok), and Ms Tipagorn (Tippy) (Chiang Mai) were exceptional. Travelling in a large multigenerational group with many children requires patience and our guides truly understood that. Mr Monchai and Ms Tippy shared their extensive knowledge of the many wonderful places we visited, and were flexible to take us to additional places along the way based on discussions. While everyday was busy, having them greet us with patience and a smile truly made this a memorable holiday. The hotels we stayed at were equally wonderful and went above and beyond to celebrate not only my parents 50th anniversary but also celebrate 2 milestone birthdays that occurred. We will cherish this holiday for many years to come. We hope to use Asia Highlights again.More

Vietnam's Regional Weather
|June Averages in...||Min. Temp||Max. Temp|
|Ho Chi Minh City||25°C/77°F||32°C/90°F|
|Phu Quoc||24°C/75°F||32°C /90°F|
|June Averages in...||Rainfall (mm)||Rainy days|
|Ho Chi Minh City||180||21|
From the table, you can see that the North (Hanoi, Halong Bay, Sapa) and South (Ho Chi Minh City, Phu Quoc, Da Lat) of Vietnam share a common pattern: the rainy season's moderate-to-high rainfalls.
By contrast, Central Vietnam (Danang, Hoi An, Nha Trang) enjoys low rainfall, great sunny days, and blue skies. Thus, if you are travelling if Northern and Southern Vietnam, always prepare a plan B in case you experience persistent rains.
What's more, you can expect plenty of hot weather as most cities' daily temperatures are between 24°C (75°F) and 32°C (90°F). But the mountain areas (Sapa, Danang, Da Lat) are the cool places to go to escape from the summer heat.
The Best Places to Visit in Vietnam in June
Considering the rainfall and temperature, northern and central Vietnam are highly recommended. If you visit southern part, you're suggested to make your schedule flexible, check the weather before daily departure, and select indoor activities when it's raining heavily.
Here are the recommended cities:
- Northern Vietnam: Halong Bay, Ninh Binh, Sapa, Mai Chau
- Central Vietnam: Hue, Hoi An, Da Lat
1. Halong Bay
In June, there are about 15 rainy days. But the rain usually occurs as short afternoon downpours.
On sunny days, Halong Bay never disappoints, with emerald water, magnificent karst cliffs, and a crystal blue sky.
Hop on a Halong Bay cruise, feast your eyes on the picturesque limestone seascape, and taste fresh seafood cooked with a local flavor. Kayaking, swimming, and diving are interesting choices as well.
Take one of our selected cruises to explore a remoter area and enjoy quality time with your family or partner on a smaller but more exquisite boat.
Sapa is a tranquil highland town with cool weather. Its temperature is usually 5–8°C (9–12°F) lower than Hanoi's. This summer retreat is perfect with colorful architecture, stunning rice terraces, and diverse minority culture.
Hiking in Sapa is a good choice on sunny days. You can get closer to the brilliant-tiered rice paddies and see the locals working in the fields: spraying, plowing, and planting.
But with the high possibility of rainfall in June, book a hotel with a great vista, enjoy a break from the hot weather, have a cup of coffee, and listen to the pitter-patter of rain in between your explorations.
3. Ninh Binh
Also known for its karst landscape, Ninh Binh is an ideal alternative when the Halong Bay cruises are canceled due to the heavy rains. Tam Coc – Bich Dong, known as "Halong Bay on Land", is quite compelling. At the beginning of June, you can take a boat along the winding river and between its green/yellow rice paddies.
It is popular to take a one/two-day trip from Hanoi. See Top 7 Day Trips from Hanoi: How to Choose (Expert Guide).
4. Mai Chau
In Northern Vietnam, you can see flourishing vegetation, cascading rice terraces, and White Thai minority culture in Mai Chau. It enjoys peaceful and pristine rural scenery without any flashing neon signs and touristy restaurants.
Its rural landscape is less affected by rainfall. Instead, the rainfall makes the villages misty and brings in the fresh air. You can choose a home-stay built on stilts, slow down your pace, and experience authentic rural life there.

5. Da Nang
June is a good time to visit Da Nang, but it is important to keep in mind that it can be quite hot and humid. There are many great activities and attractions to enjoy during this time of year.
For example, you can visit the famous Marble Mountains, enjoy the beautiful beaches of Da Nang, and enjoy Da Nang International Fireworks Festival (DIFF).
The 2024 Da Nang International Fireworks Festival (DIFF) is unreleased. It scheduled to take place in 2023 from June 3 to July 8. It is expected to attract seven international teams and host Vietnam which will perform on five nights (Jun 3, Jun 10, Jun 17, Jun 24, and July 8 ). We can tailor-make a Vietnam tour including the fireworks festival if you are interested in it.
6. Nha Trang
This charming beach city enjoys dry and sunny days when other places are humid. Try its special mud-bathing, enjoy a day trip to four islands, and do something exciting: off-road ATV driving, diving, kayaking, canoeing...
Located in Central Vietnam, Hue, once the capital of the Nguyen Dynasty, is a must if you are interested in Vietnam's history.
Have a date with those ancient relics and get an in-depth insight into Vietnam's history with an expert guide that we can provide. You can stroll inside Hue Citadel, which was "a mini Forbidden City". Or pay a visit to the royal tombs and the iconic pagodas.
8. Hoi An
In Central Vietnam, Hoi An is more-or-less guaranteed sunny days and blue skies in June. As a city full of cultural complexity, Hoi An is famed for its well-preserved architecture, excellent roadside cafés, and distinctive local cuisine.
Beautiful and colored lanterns illuminate the ancient city at night. If possible, travel during a Full Moon Lantern Festival (on the full moon day each month). You can make wishes and float paper lanterns. The lanterns twinkle on the river and make it like the Milky Way.
In addition to the ancient town, Hoi An provides fun hands-on cooking class opportunities… Have a scenic boat ride to the Red Bridge Cooking School, discover the Hoi An market, buy the ingredients for Vietnamese cooking like the locals, then learn to cook, and finally taste your Vietnamese dishes.
Less Crowding and Cost
June is in the off-season for most of Vietnam, when you can enjoy a crowd-free trip and discounted hotels and flights.
You are suggested to prepare for crowded beaches from late June, because Vietnamese families begin their summer vacations at that time. Likewise, the cost will increase. Hotel will be in high demand from then on, so book your hotel for late June early.

What to Wear and Bring in June
- Sun protection: sunscreen, hat, sunglasses
- Waterproof rain jacket, umbrella, rubber boots… for rainy days
- Loose, breathable clothing that covers your knees and shoulders (for cultural sensitivity and sun protection)
- Light, quick-drying wear for humid days
- Swim shorts, bathing suit, and flip flops for a beach vacation
- Layers of clothing for the cooler evenings in Northern Vietnam or mountain areas
- Comfortable walking shoes
- Insect repellent, as mosquitoes are at their peak activity
