Frequently Asked Questions about Mekong Delta Travel

  • What’s the best time to visit Ho Chi Minh City & Mekong Delta?

     

    The Mekong Delta reveals its best during dry months from December to May when the sky is crystal clear, the land is lush and the water is calm. From June to September, it may be hot and humid but the greatest variety of tropical fruit is available only in these months. During October and November, occasional flooding is expected, especially in remote areas around Dong Thap and Tra Vinh, so stay informed of regional weather forecast ahead of your trip if you are travelling in these months.

     

    Life in Mekong Delta is woven by water and season. It is most vibrant in spring (flower season: late January - March) and early summer (fruit season: April - May), the best time to visit Mekong Delta, also the best time to visit Ho Chi Minh city and Vietnam in general. The flood season (September - November), however, sweeps everything away and brings a new face to the delta with its rich brown alluvial water. This is also the income season for local people with abundant fish and water vegetables. The waterfront life is most fascinating in this season.
