    In January in Vietnam, it is best to rest on the southern resorts (MUI ne, Ho Chi Minh city, O. Phu Quoc island, Vung Tau, O. Con Dao), dry and hot weather.

    In the center, in Nha Trang, Danang and Hoi an, a little weather spoil the echoes of the ending of the rainy season, but the overall time for a beach holiday good, especially in the second half of the month.

    Not comfortable, perhaps, only in the North (Hanoi, Sapa, Halong Bay), where in the winter months too cold, the temperature drops to 10 degrees, and in mountain areas below zero. And if Hanoi it does not matter, just stock up on warm clothes, Halong Bay tours around the Bay, accompanied by the piercing cold wind look unpleasant. In the mountainous areas of Sapa, and even snow. Save the situation in the North, only the almost complete absence of precipitation.
