Frequently asked questions about Ho Chi Minh City tours

There is plenty to do in Ho Chi Minh City, but it is a busy city with millions of residents and scooters everywhere. It promises to give an impression during your trip, but for some this can be too much and prefer to leave the city as soon as possible.

The best time to visit Ho Chi Minh City is in the dry season. This is in the months of December to April. But you can actually visit Ho Chi Minh City all year round. The city does not have to deal with violent natural phenomena (such as can occur in North and Central Vietnam) and the climate is actually always pleasant.
