Stunning countryside, delicious dishes, charming culture, friendly people and more – this is what travelers share with us after their trip to Indochina.
What do you want to get out of your Vietnam Cambodia Laos itinerary?
Walk through a sprinkle of rain and enjoy the cool and fresh atmosphere in spring? Sunbathing on the blue stunning beaches with a delicious cream in hand? Get away from the noisy crowds and explore a forgotten paradise? The most suitable time to visit three beautiful countries of Indochina depends on your favorites.
Let’s discover the Indochina calendar to find out the answer to why you can travel to this land all around the year!
In the same period of time, you might be overwhelmingly surprised because the weather in the north and south of Vietnam can be completely different, even opposite. Because of the variety, for each separate region, I have the own recommendation to help your plan the best Vietnam family packages.
There are two distinct seasons in North Vietnam: from November to March is the cool and dry season, while the hot and wet one lasts from April to October.
If you want to enjoy the chilly atmosphere in winter months, experience the unique culture of a special holiday for Vietnamese people – the Lunar New Year, or wish to see a breathtaking scene in mountainous areas in North Vietnam – the white snow falls and covers fully in plum branches that blossoms the most beautiful flowers, you should not skip the dry season, for sure!
Unlike the northern areas, the average temperature in the entire year is almost unchanged and ranges between 30°C and 35°C.
There are heavy but short downpours from May until October – it is the signal for the beginning of a rainy season.
My suggestion is from December to April which might be the best time to visit Ho Chi Minh City as well as other southern areas. Your trip will not be ruined by the sudden rains or several problems of transportation.
Located in Southeast Asia, the best time to travel to Cambodia is from November to February next year. At that time, the weather is mild, not too hot and less rainy.
If you travel to Cambodia in April, you have opportunities to participate in the traditional Cambodian New Year with the interesting Bom Chaul Chnam Water Fall Festival, held on the 13th to 15th of April.
In the late year, when November comes, the sky is still bright and the sun shines warmly in the daytime. The attractive water procession and boat racing festivals is one not to miss during your Vietnam Cambodia tour packages.
Laos has the tropical climate of the monsoon area with two distinct seasons: the rainy season and the dry season. The rainy season lasts from May to November, followed by the dry season from December to April next year, which can also be considered the best time to travel to Laos, at this time, the temperature average about 20°C and 30°C.
At this time, you can freely explore the culture and cuisine in Laos, or visit the ancient capital of Luang Prabang with many magnificent temples. Moreover, admire the splendid Royal Palace, unique Jars field or serene Vientiane Buddha garden (Vientiane) – these experience will make you feel like step into another glorious and peaceful world.
You can enjoy hot spicy specialties in Laos which is suitable for the dry season. Dishes that deserve to be included on the tourist culinary trail include Sticky Rice (Klao niaw), Laap, Tam Mak Houng, Khausoy or crispy bread.
The last words,
Weather, festivals, landscapes, activities, or even dishes are the essential factors which decide your journey time to Indochina.
