Voyages Jules Verne

Visit Vietnam

Vietnam is a land of ancient temples, rugged mountains, palm-lined beaches, verdant rice fields and welcoming people. The country has emerged successfully from the ravages of the 1960/70’s war. These days you’re sure to be enchanted by the perfect pairings of ancient and contemporary scenes, and to fall in love with this largely unchanged land.

The historical city of Hanoi, situated in the north of the country, boasts French Colonial-era architecture, an intricate maze of streets in the Old Quarter and an abundance of scenic lakes. Hanoi’s French architectural influence gives the city an enchanted blend of both modern and medieval atmosphere.

In central Vietnam, you’ll find the UNESCO World Heritage site of Hue, a complex of historic palaces, pagodas and tombs once home of the Ngyuen Dynasty.

A highlight for many travellers is the Mekong Delta, one of the most vibrant and scenic rivers in Asia, with its colourful floating markets and remote villages.

Vietnam is a country of breath-taking natural beauty – exotic in every sense of the word. Intrepid travellers will revel in its unspoilt wilderness, the pancake-flat rice land of the deltas and networks of limestone outcrops. Maybe see new flora and fauna – there have been many new discoveries of previously unknown species of plants, birds and animals in recent years.

Weather & Climate

It can get exceptionally hot all-year-round but the north has a cooler time between October and April. Temperatures around the country can reach up to 40°C in the height of the hot and rainy season (May to September), but the northern highlands and Hanoi can often seem chilly and damp in the winter.

When to go

There is no one ideal time to visit Vietnam as a whole but at any time of year there will be sun somewhere.
