Best time to travel the Mekong delta in southern Vietnam
The temperatures in southern Vietnam don’t change much throughout the year, the average is about 30 degrees celsius.
The dry season in the Mekong delta is between October / November and April / May. But even the rainy season from May to October is no reason not to travel this region. Usually the rain showers are brief and heavy, mostly in the afternoons, but after an hour or so it clears up again.
The high season for tourists in the Mekong delta is from October to January, but it is well worth to travel this region in the quieter season too. During the low season prices are much lower and since there are less tourists, it is a much more authentic experience.
