Best time to visit Ha Giang

Ha Giang weather

Ha Giang weather

The best time to visit Ha Giang is around or after the Tet Holiday, which occurs from February to May. The scenery is spectacular at this time of year, with mountaintops hidden in the clouds and wild peach flowers blooming everywhere. Furthermore, the weather during the Tet holidays is very pleasant, with little rain and cool air, so visitors do not need to bring raincoats or umbrellas. During this time, there are also many unique and appealing festivals to celebrate the New Year, giving visitors the opportunity to learn more about Ha Giang’s ethnic culture and enjoy the festive atmosphere of various ethnic groups. Finally, because it is the dry season and most routes to Ha Giang follow the sides of mountains, the roads are much safer to travel on.
