The best time to visit Hanoi Vietnam is Autumn. During autumn, Hanoi seems more relaxed than at any time of the year. Everything is just so beautiful. Every scene is worth a postcard snapshot and it’s a sin not to bring a decent camera during your visit.
Autumn starts from August to November and then is the winter will be coming. This season is quite short, typically from the middle of September to the end of November. With the average temperature is 25 degree, Hanoi’s autumn is charming with warm sunlight, and dry atmosphere, cool breeze. The weather in Hanoi is so pleasant, it makes anyone who wants to come here not want to leave. Thu Ha Noi moved people's hearts with the high and clear blue sky, the clear sunshine splits "playing" on the golden autumn leaves, and the love of Hanoi in the autumn can also come from the wind. The cold pig will blow coldly through every row of trees and street corners.
