May’s weather seems not to be very mild as it is nearly as hot as summer months when daily average temperature varies between 25 and 31 Degree Celsius, while Hanoi rainy season is starting with 183 mm of precipitation and about 14 rainy days. Not to mention its heavy showers are unpredictable that may occur at anytime of the day.
