Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, offers beautiful weather during the winter season. With daytime temperatures ranging comfortably between the 60s and 70s (°F) and infrequent rain showers, it is the perfect time to visit. Travelers can explore top attractions like the Temple of Literature and indulge in a steaming bowl of Phở, the nation’s most popular kind of noodle soup. Additionally, a winter visit to Hanoi provides opportunities to experience exciting events such as Tet, which celebrates the Vietnamese Lunar New Year, and the Perfume Pagoda Festival, a Buddhist pilgrimage that takes place every February.

The United States’ website also highlights Honolulu-Oahu in the US as the top destination for winter vacations. While temperatures drop in other parts of the world, Hawaii’s capital remains comfortable with average highs in the low to mid-80s (°F). The other places that made the top five on the list include Sydney in Australia, Lucerne in Switzerland, the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador, and St. Lucia in the eastern Caribbean.
