Weather in your hometown
  • Nha Trang sees beautiful weather from February
    through October, and the only drawback to the
    other months of the year is that winter is the
    rainy season in the area.  The temperatures are
    moderate throughout the year, staying somewhere
    between an average 18 C and an average high of
    30 C.  It should be noted that the summer months
    can get quite humid, so travelers not used to
    humidity may want to plan on avoiding the hottest
    months of the year (July and August).
  • Visitors seeking to spend time on the beaches
    will find that they can do so as early as
    February.  In fact, the best diving in the area
    is generally considered to be during the spring
  • For the most part, autumn travel in the area is
    not recommended.   It doesnt get particularly
    cold, but that rainy season should be taken
    seriously. This is because the storms can get
    violent and there is some risk of typhoon
    devastation during the heart of the rainy season.

  • The climate of Khanh Hoa is highly tropical. With
    an average temperature of 26.5oC, the weather is
    warm all the time in the plain regions. That is

    thorough every season. Khanh Hoa also has a
    monsoon period with lasts from September to Decemb
    er (4 months in total). However, the area around
    NhaTrang city has such a privilege to experience
    the rainy weather for only 2 months a year. Thus,
    you can tell that tourism is even more popular in
    Nha Trang. On the other hand, the climate on
    higher regions such as Hon Ba Mountrain is pretty
    chilling and dry. If you go there, expect to
    encounter a type of weather similar to that in Da
    Lat or Sapa.

    pollution caused by trash from ships, coastal
    aquaculture and land-based activities.

    of coral reef decline excessive domestic and
    agricultural waste pouring into ocean waters,
    poor land-use practices that increase
    sedimentation of rivers and then of reefs, and
    over-exploitation of reef resources. These
    factors, however, also make it far harder for
    coral reefs to recover from bleaching events.

    nearly 10 tons of trash and pollutants from about
    300 lobster rearing cages and 300 households
    living on islands. Sewage and waste water,
    persistent organic pollutants whether brought
    by rivers or discharged directly into coastal
    waters take a severe toll on human health and
    well-being as well as on coastal ecosystems. The
    environmental issues have affected greatly on the
