Nha Trang enjoys a sultry climate, and is most fortunate to miss the cyclones that visit other parts of the country. The hot dry season runs from January through to September where temperatures range from 22C to 34C, with the cooler rainy season between October to December where we see temperatures ranging from 17C to 30C. During the rainy season the ocean can become quite wild, so it is best to keep an eye on the kids when you are down at the beach, and swim where the lifeguards are. They wear the distinctive red and yellow uniforms, and perch up in the bamboo towers along the beach front.
