Ho Chi Minh City Climate and Weather
Ho Chi Minh City is in the tropics, and very close to the sea, so its climate is steadily warm to hot all year, with temperatures staying between 70°F (21°C) and 90°F (32°C) all year round. Temperatures are slightly cooler between December and April, which is also the dry season. Rains begin in May and become heavy between June and August, but the showers are sudden and short, with the sun usually reappearing fairly quickly. There is a danger of typhoons from July to November. The best time to visit is in the cool, dry season, between December and April.
