Weather in Ho Chi Minh City

Ho Chi Minh City has a tropical wet and dry climate characterised by its two distinct seasons; the dry season and the rainy season.

Temperatures vary little throughout the year, making it a year-round holiday destination. During the dry season (November until April), temperatures can lurch as high as 35°C (95°F) but usually average 28°C (82°F). The hottest month is April (35ºC/ 95ºF) while the coolest month is December (22ºC/ 72ºF) which is still a comfortable temperature.

Average annual rainfall is 190mm (7.5 inches) and the rainy season is between May and October. July is the wettest month on average and showers are normally over in a couple of hours. In the run-up to the rainy season, the humidity increases dramatically and sightseeing can be quite exhausting.

The Mid-Autumn Festival (held on the 15th day of the eighth lunar month, usually September) can be quite a spectacle but hotels are often full.

We update the weather data for from our weather partner every four hours. The time the last update was received is detailed here.
Actual Forecast Location: We have 830+ weather locations on the worldtravelguide.net website. Where no exact location is available we have used the nearest appropriate forecast point.
Symbols indicate the predominant weather for the day in question, calculated based on a weighting of different types of weather. So if a day is forecast to be sunny with the possibility of a brief shower, then we will see a sunny or partly cloudy symbol rather than a rain cloud.
The maximum temperature is the highest temperature forecast between dawn and dusk, and the minimum temperature is the lowest temperature expected from dusk on the day in question to dawn the next day. The temperature is in °C, or Celsius.
Wind speed and direction are the conditions expected at midday. Wind direction is based on a 16 point compass. W, SW, SSW, etc. The wind direction states where the wind originates. Wind speed is listed in MPH or miles per hour.
Humidity levels indicates how much water vapour the air contains compared to the maximum it could contain at that temperature. As a general guide:
  • 0 to 30 is very low
  • 31 to 50 is low
  • 51 to 70 is moderate to low
  • 71 to 80 is moderate
  • 81 to 90 is moderate to high
  • 91 to 100 is high
Pressure is measured in millibars (mb)
Visibility based on whether the human eye can see the following distances:
  • Very poor - less than 1km
  • Poor - between 1km and 4km
  • Moderate - between 4km and 10km
  • Good - between 10km and 20km
  • Very good - between 20km and 40km
