It is a sad new to travellers in Hanoi, who desire to have an outdoor trip this weekend since the weather does not support them. The temperature does not appear as a problem, ranging from 20 – 23 Degree Celsius during day time, yet rain is truly an obstacle. Though the rain in the next 3 days is not heavy but enough to wet roads and blanket the sky with a sorrow color. Going out with an umbrella or a raincoat is highly recommended.
