Vietnam has a tropical monsoon climate, dominated by the south or southwesterly monsoon from May to September and the northeast monsoon from October to April. The southern summer monsoon brings rain to the two deltas and west-facing slopes, while the cold winter monsoon picks up moisture over the Gulf of Tonkin and dumps it along the central coast and the eastern edge of the central highlands.
Visitors to Vietnam must obtain a visa from one of the Vietnamese embassy, consulate in your country of residence or via agency on arrival. Unless they come from one of the visa exempt countries. All visitors must hold a passport valid for 6 months
There are excellent hospitals in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and Da Nang with international level medical facilities and health care centers in all provinces, but facilities and medical care there can be more basic. Health insurance is essential and should include cover for emergency repatriation by air. We highly recommend you take sufficient preventative measures and travel insurance before traveling to Vietnam and Asia.
