Vietnam, thanks to the extensive form of its territories, has a variety of climatic conditions. In the north of Vietnam, there is a clear division of seasons: short winter is replaced by sunny spring, warm summer and mild autumn. In the southern part of Vietnam, such concepts as the drought season and the rainy season are relevant – at this time the showers are regularly poured, usually in the evening and afternoon. The average daily temperature in Vietnam varies from twenty-two to twenty-seven degrees Celsius. In mountainous regions of Vietnam, for example, in Dalat and Sapa, the summer temperature does not exceed twenty degrees, which in due time made these places very popular for the summer holidays of Europeans in Vietnam. The existing clear differentiation of the regions of Vietnam according to climatic and geographical conditions makes visiting Vietnam convenient at any time of the year – everyone can choose a holiday in Vietnam with the climate most comfortable for him.
