Be different with the Spring , the summer’s weather is so hot in many places and the rainiest month is August. In Hanoi, the temperature is so hot from May to August and it has a lot of precipitation, thunderstorms during the day and the temperature in the evening is usually 32. The rainy weather you will meet in the summer, be prepared. These rains may be short but it may also be longer duration then may turn back the beautiful sunny weather so Hanoi has the wettest season in July.  It is interesting characteristic in Hanoi and in the northern Vietnam. In this season, people usually go to swimming pool or centre shopping instead of outdoor activities. In Halong bay, there are the most visitors in this season in the north because it’s yellow sun and it’s windy beach, sky’s blue, it’s so hot with the average temperature about 35 and in the end of the summer, it usually has storms, many typhoons and most precipitation falls.

This temperature main stably cool during a year, between 15- 30 Celsius degree and this humility is relatively high around a year, between 83-87 percents .In comparison with Hanoi and Halong bay. Thanks to its ideally high altitude, Sapa is an ideal location for summer during the overheated time and the scarcely populated town which also has fresh air. With the high temperature, you can try trekking, it’s so interesting. I believe that you will never be disappointed. The daily temperature during the summer is from 15 to 28 Celsius degree and night temperature is from 10 to 18 Celsius degree. It’s a good time when you want to hike to the highest of Vietnam – Fansipan.

In Hanoi, the weather is considered the best period from September to late November with the warm sun and cool breeze, the temperature is about 25 Celsius degree. Sometimes, there are some small rains helping Hanoi’s air to become more fresh and cooler.  The same as Hanoi, the weather of the autumn of Sapa is colder than of the summer .This is a suitable period for laid – back natural holiday if you want to visit Sapa.
