Bordered by the South China Sea, and clinging to mainland southeast Asia, Vietnam is one of our favourite honeymoon destinations.
Why Vietnam Honeymoons?
Are you longing to see the Far East? Then consider a honeymoon in Vietnam. Home to a stretching coastline of white beaches, charming colonial towns, metropolises spinning with mopeds, and some seriously good coffee, Vietnam is irresistible.
Things for Couples To Do
Cruise to Halong Bay. Journey through the mythical land “where the dragon descends into the sea” and witness the awe-inspiring sight of 2000 tiny islands rising from the emerald and sapphire waters.
Visit the city of Hoi An. Arguably Vietnam’s most charming city, Hoi An is lined with colonial buildings, pretty bridges, tasty restaurants, and surprisingly cheap tailors.
If you’re hoping to add another Eastern destination into the mix, we recommend Cambodia. It's very affordable and easily combined with a Vietnam honeymoon.
Best Time to Visit
Vietnam has a tropical climate characterised by distinct rainy and dry seasons which tend to vary throughout the country, so timing is paramount when planning your Vietnam honeymoon.
Vietnam weather tends to be hot and quite humid all year round, however it can get cooler in the north and mountainous areas.
It’s best to visit the north from November to May, the south from February to May, and the central areas from January to August. Overall, if you’re planning on touring the entire country, February to May would be the best time to honeymoon in Vietnam.
The Festival of Tet Trung Thu takes place every year around September. Although the most major part of this celebration is the Children’s Festival, adults love it too. With mooncakes, lanterns, and various costumes and performances, there is plenty to see and do.
Why We Love Vietnam Honeymoons
“Vietnam is one of my favourite honeymoon destinations. When I was there I completely fell in love with Hoi An, the city is just so beautiful and the people are so welcoming, it really feels like it's frozen in time.”
