Vietnam In June: Weather And Best Places To Visit

If you’re looking for a summer vacation destination, why not choose to visit Vietnam in June? In June, Vietnam not only has a beautiful clear sky, but also marks the beginning of summer vacation, so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to experience the local culture and festivities. Here is some information about the weather, important events in June, and some recommended places that will help you prepare for your vacation in Vietnam.

Overview of Vietnam Weather in June

The temperature of Vietnam in June is around 35°C. Generally, the entire country experiences hot and humid weather this month. This is one of the few times of the year when the weather in the north and central regions share a common pattern. Both regions experience the dry season, while the rainy season begins in the south.

In the North: Peak of summer

In June, the climate in northern Vietnam reaches the peak of summer. It’s not as terribly hot as in July, but the average temperature is around 32°C. The highest temperature can sometimes reach 39°C in certain regions. The humidity in the north is quite high this month, and the sun can be scorching on many days, so it is recommended to visit mountainous regions or some beautiful beaches to avoid the heat of the north.

In the Central: Different weather in 3 zones

If you’re looking to visit Vietnam in June, the central region may be worth considering. With a long and narrow land separated by the Bach Ma mountain in the middle, central Vietnam is divided into 3 zones with different weather conditions. However, the month of June is the only month when the entire central region has synchronized weather. The temperature ranges between 28°C and 38°C and the humidity is on average around 80%. The sun shines all around the region and rain rarely falls, making it an ideal time for a tour of central Vietnam.

In the South: Rainy season

June is part of the rainy season in southern Vietnam. Rain falls more in the South, with an average of 25 days per month. The rains are generally abundant, but they do not last long and contribute to refreshing the air. The humidity is high, and the average temperature is around 33°C, so be prepared to sweat even if it’s not raining. However, the afternoon shower will wash away all the heat, making the air fresh to enjoy the fascinating activities of Saigon, including the active nightlife.
