As far as I'm aware of, it is usually cold in northern Vietnam in Jan, but warmer in the southern and central parts. Mountainous areas like Sapa may be colder. It may rain some days but I can say for quite sure that Jan is not the stormy month in Vietnam. The nothern part in particular, including Hanoi, is cold and dry then. Hope this helps.

Best time to visit? For Vietnam as a whole, March/April. There are 3 distinct climatic zones in Vietnam, and for the rest of the year the weather varies considerably from region to region.

All places are stinking hot from April/May to the end of September, with varying amounts of rainfall, including flooding in some parts.

In general, Hanoi in January is still quite cold and may has shower rain.

Enjoy your time.
