September marks the end of domestic tourism season in the country. While Hanoi is experiencing perfect autumn weather with warm sunshine and gentle breeze, Ho Chi Minh City is still experiencing hot and rainy days in September.
In September, temperatures range from 24 – 33 ° C. However, high humidity 85% (highest in the year) and heavy rainfall 325mm with 14 rainy days (second highest rainfall of the year) makes the weather in September much more uncomfortable than in other months.
September may not be a good time to visit Ho Chi Minh City due to hot and humid weather. However, if you travel in a family with children, it is a great time for your baby to enjoy the traditional Vietnamese children’s festival – Mid-Autumn Festival. Visiting Ho Chi Minh City on this occasion, visitors will have the opportunity to participate in making lantern activities, watch the lion dance, enjoy the taste of moon cake. Besides, you can enjoy the festive atmosphere of Vietnam Independence Day on The 2nd of September.
