When to visit

Meo Vac’s elevated mountain location means that unlike most of Vietnam, the town has 4 seasons throughout the year. Normally, Vietnam is known for having two – a wet and a dry, but in the northern parts of the country, the temperatures can drastically drop come wintertime. The off-season in Meo Vac spans most of the year as tourism drops from January to September.

Better weather conditions start in October and last until December. These fall months tend to have less rain and heat. The months also fall during a time when foreigners have vacations for the end of the year holidays, so more people are traveling internationally. While it can get cold, visitors shouldn’t need more than a light jacket if they visit Meo Vac in the fall.
