    Vietnam weather December

    What’s the weather like in Vietnam in December?

    This amazing country in south east Asia is becoming very popular as visitors explore its wonderful beaches, cities and pretty landscapes. The Vietnam weather in December is hot and sunny, but there may be some light tropical rainfall.

    Geographical influences

    The biggest influence over the weather in Vietnam in December are the south west monsoons. These tropical rains come across the Indian Ocean and bring warm and cloudy air to Vietnam. There’s more wet weather in the north, including the city of Hanoi, but Ho Chi Minh in the south gets just 65mm this month, which is quite dry for Vietnam.

    Averages

    You’ll need a showerproof jacket or umbrella in case you’re caught in a shower, but make sure you also bring sunblock, sunglasses and warm weather clothes! The average daytime temperature for Vietnam in December is 26°C. Ho Chi Minh could reach temperatures over 30°C on hotter days, with evening temperatures dropping back to around 20°C. The humidity level will be very high, at an average of 85%, so it’s wise to carry a bottle of water if you’re walking around the beaches or towns. The sunshine in December could last for as long as 11 hours each day, with the sun not setting until 5.30pm along Vietnam’s glorious south coast. The wind speed will be light to moderate at an average of 9mph, but you can cool off in the South China Sea which will be around 28°C at this time.
