Are you planning a trip to the Mekong Delta but don’t know what to expect in terms of weather? Well, worry no more! The Mekong Delta has a tropical climate with two distinct seasons: dry season and wet season. Let’s dive into what to expect during your visit!

Dry season in the Mekong Delta starts from December and lasts until May. It’s the perfect time to enjoy the sunshine and explore the beauty of the delta. The average temperature is around 27°C, which makes it warm but comfortable. Don’t forget to bring along some sunscreen and light clothing to keep you cool during your trip.

On the other hand, the wet season starts from June to November, and as the name suggests, it’s the time when the rains come down. Don’t let the rains dampen your spirit, though! The Mekong Delta is still a beautiful destination to visit, even during the rainy season. Make sure to pack an umbrella or raincoat and some waterproof footwear to keep you dry and comfortable.
