In April Hanoi still has warm climate and strong wind sometimes. The weather is not too different from the previous month when ones still enjoy most beautiful days of spring. Festival season hasn’t ended yet that you may find some of interest in the suburbs of Hanoi.
Minor increase in Hanoi's average temperature to 22-27 C degree only makes the weather become more favourable. On the other hand, Hanoi is starting to launch its rainy season which can be seen in a double fold of humidity and number of rainy days to 91mm/8days. As a result, buy yourselves an umbrella to avoid getting wet.

Le Mat Festival held in Gia Lam is the most noticeable event in the month which celebrates the slaying of a giant monstrous snake during King Ly Thai Tong Dynasty.
