Go Green in Vietnam and Cambodia
Lush green countryside and rice paddies, waterways full to the brim, virtually no crowds at popular sites – could there be a better time to visit Indochina than the beautiful green season?
Don’t let the idea of a rainy season put a damper on your plans to travel to Vietnam
. While it’s true there may be occasional downpours in certain regions, they shouldn’t last too long nor impact your enjoyment of these beautiful countries. In fact, the bursts of rain are often a welcome break from the heat and come at just the right time to nip into a bar for a refreshing local beer!
Central Vietnam has plenty of sunshine and little rain while the rest of the country is in its wet season, with areas such as Dalat, Nha Trang, Quy Nhon, Hoi An, Hue and Da Nang proving fantastic places to visit in the middle of the year. Vietnam’s beautiful central beaches still promise plenty of sunshine and virtually no rain during the months of June and July, with even Saigon in the south boasting mostly balmy days and short bouts of rain in the afternoon rarely affecting any plans for touring.
In Cambodia, green season travellers will have a tranquil experience at Angkor Wat and see the temple in a new light, surrounded by vegetation and moats rather than fellow tourists. Travelling through Cambodia’s lakes and waterways is often possible only in the green season, with routes such as Siem Reap to Phnom Penh and along the Mekong all the way through to Vietnam’s Saigon at their peak in the middle of the year. The green season offers abundant opportunities for travellers to explore Cambodia’s waterways by speedboats, slow boats and luxurious classic cruise vessels.
As well as all the obvious benefits in spectacular scenery and remarkable photographic opportunities, travellers visiting Vietnam and Cambodia in the green season will receive even better value for money than Indochina already offers. Hotels have greater availability, which allows for much more choice at a lower price point, and the price of international flights comes down significantly due to lower passenger demand.
