Weather July/August

I've gained a lot of information for our up & coming trip on this site, thanks everyone. Looks like we will be travelling July or August. What kind of weather are we likely to encounter, going to HCMC, Hanoi, Halong Bay, Hoi An. Thanks in advance.

We were in Vietnam July/August last yr, we stayed south so can only comment on HCMC and Hoi An but the weather was great, hot, a few down pours but they never lasted long.

It will be stinking hot in Hanoi and very humid, so try to restrict your sightseeing to the relatively less hot hours and spend the middle of the day eating and having a drink or two somewhere cool.

In the north the typhoon season starts in July. The chance you will encounter a severe typhoon is not high, but if it should happen your cruise on Halong Bay would probably be cancelled.

Thanks for your replies. Hmmmm don't think July/August is a good time to visit maybe November instead.

CreakingBones - thanks, we'll probably be out & about early in the day, have lunch then back to the hotel for a nanna nap in the air conditioned comfort then go back out again when its cooler : )
