Hoi An Weather
The climate of Hoi An is considered tropical. It means that its temperatures are warm throughout the entire year, and the year is distinctively broken up by the wet and dry seasons.
Although the weather is warm throughout the year, Hoi An experiences the hottest weather during the months of June and July, with a daily temperatures ascending to mid 90’s F. The temperature during the nighttime descends to about 70 F. The months of December and January are considered as the coldest wintry months. The daily temperature rises beyond 70’s F reaching mid 60’s F especially during the nighttime.
Generally more important to visitors than temperatures is the rain. The rainy (or monsoon) season in Hoi An is from September until January. During this period, rain clouds will constantly move through the area, particularly during October and November. It can rain constantly and there is a high probability of flood and typhoons. There are days during which sunshine is abundant, but they are not the majority. A noticeable decrease in tourism can be seen during the wet season. The dry season in Hoi An is from February until May. These months provide plenty of sunshine, with warm temperatures.
Some tourists think the best time to visit Hoi An is between February and April, when rainfall is low and temperatures are comfortable. But others think it is best to wait a little longer, until May and June. During summer, the temperatures can get hot.
It is lucky if you can travel to Hoi An on the 14th day of the lunar year each month when Hoi An celebrate the Full Moon Festivals and becomes the stage for traditional songs, dancing, games and food, with lanterns lining all of the streets.
