Hanoi in the Fall & Winter season

My friend, a tour expert of Eviva Tour Vietnam said that in the fall-winter season in Viet Nam is affected by hurricanes and tropical low pressure causing constant rain in the Central area where there are located many beautiful beaches and tourist spots. Therefore, he recommended me to head to the North for a leisure break in this most poetic of seasons. And Hanoi is my first visit in the North.

Hoan Kiem Lake in the Fall & Winter season

Hundreds of songs and poems have been written to praise Hanoi in autumn for its exceptional charm. It is said that between September and November is the best time to discover Vietnam, especially Hanoi. During this time the weather is cool, midlely sunny with a gentle breeze that makes everyone much more active after the long hot summer.

The scent of alstonia’s flowers (hoa sua) smells weet floating across the air, discreetly reminding us the autumn is coming. Spending the morning strolling on Thanh Nien Street between West Lake will help visitors fully understand that autumn in Ha Noi is like and why it has the strange magic to bring lovers closer.

In the afternoon, a walk around Hoan Kiem Lake then heading to the crowed Old Quarter sketches up a perfect picture of the capital with all the olds and the news. Night time turns colder and visitors will enjoy seeing thousands of lights up, revealing a delightful city with shops, bars/cafes and a heaven of street food. Heading to Hanoi this season is a way to enjoy a perfect combination of what you see, smell and taste.
