Even if Vietnam is an Asian country and movies usually present it as steaming-hot, it is not always true. It is a long country, divided into 3 parts (North, Centre, South) and with fluid weather.
To help you make the right decision on when and where to go, we have compiled how Vietnam seasons and weather change from North to South in different months. We have already presented Vietnam in August – February to you, and now it is time for March.
It is also good to decide fast – March is the peak season in Vietnam, with tourists flowing in. Just the total international arrivals in 9 months of 2019 reached 12,870,506 arrivals, increasing 10.8% over the same period last year! We advise booking multiple months in advance to secure the best spot and price. Need help with that? Contact a local certified English-speaking travel agency!
But first things first: here is some basic info about North, Centre, and South in March.

The central part is perfect to visit! The dry (and warm) season lasts from January to May here. Monsoon season starts in late July or August. Do not like to sweat? No worries, biggest heat starts in June. Generally, December to March is said to be the best time to visit the central part and we could not agree more. And what about the 3rd month of the year?
