Cruelly hot summer has arrived at Hanoi as this month is when we see the largest amount of heat in a year. Interestingly, June is also the start of tourism season in Hanoi according to data collected about the number of passenger visit this capital city in recent years.
Even at night we cannot avoid its heat - knowing that the average temperature at night is 26oC while and by day it is 33 C degree - on average. Again, the average temperature can’t say much because strong sunlight can melt asphalt on roads and it may reach 40oC or even more at 12pm sometimes. Besides, high humidity of 72% in combination with its heat can really worry things. Heavy showers are becoming a little more often with about the same level of precipitation as the last month. Tourists from Spain or some hot states of America like California, Utah or Texas would be okay with Hanoi’s June while ones who are familiar with cool climate in England, France or Argentina would have some difficulties.

Travel tips for Hanoi in June:
Chem Temple Festival is the only festival held in June in Hanoi in June, at Thuy Phuong Town, Tu Liem District. Activities in the event include dragon boat racing on Red River, kite flying and doves releasing. But this single festival will not be able to counter the heat!
In sum, if your schedule is not too tight, you are suggested to wait for spring and autumn.
