In Mekong Delta, the rainy season begins in May and lasts until August. However, the rains in this region are usually short and won’t affect your trip seriously. Thus, visiting Mekong Delta during these months is not a bad choice at all.

Mekong Delta, also called as Nine Dragon river delta, is the region in the South West of Vietnam where Mekong River reaches its end-point and approaches the sea. Most of the area in Mekong Delta is covered with many small rivers which are the distributaries of Mekong River. Therefore, the life in this region is very unique and different from other places in Vietnam. In Mekong Delta, the local people sell and exchange merchandises directly on water, which was usually called as floating market. Besides, this delta is also famous for its delicious tropical fruits, beautiful nature as well as rich culture.

The weather of Southern Vietnam is very stable throughout the year with the average temperature of 30 degrees Celsius. Although it could be rainy in some months, any day during the year would be great time for tourists to visit Mekong Delta. However, the best time for visiting is between September and November as these months are the floating season in Mekong Delta. This season attracts not only international tourists but also Vietnamese people since there are many interesting things to experience. You can go fishing on a Vietnamese traditional boat with local people, and then enjoy the meal cooked with the fish you just caught.

In addition to the floating season, the months between December and April are also good time to visit Mekong Delta. The weather is comfortable and the rainfall is low in these months. You will enjoy some interesting activities, like riding a bike along the country roads, visiting local families to experience their daily life. Furthermore, it is the harvest season of fruits, so you will have a chance to enjoy many Vietnamese tropical fruits when they are fresh and delicious.
