Health: Vaccinations are required and strongly recommended. Your GP will be able to provide you with specific advice on the destinations in your itinerary.
Best time to travel: Travel to Vietnam is possible all year, although the seasons do vary across the country and you may encounter some rain, whatever the time of year. Northern Vietnam (eg Hanoi, Halong Bay and Sa Pa) is perhaps at its best between September-December when the weather is generally warm and sunny. March to August is ideal for the central region (Hue, Hoi An, Danang) and to avoid the heaviest rains in Southern Vietnam December to April is best.
