June is when the far-northern mountains start receiving torrential rains and there may be flash floods. There may also be typhoons or tropical depressions brushing through Vietnam’s sea or inland but not often. It is best to consult local travel specialists if you want to take a trip into this region.

June is when the Central Coast suffers constantly from high temperatures (30-40oC). Along with the constant heat strike, there is a high danger of forest fires. Make sure you have enough cover when traveling outdoors in the strong sunshine.

June is a lovely time in the Central Highlands and South of Vietnam with short-lived daily rains which last for about 1 hour more or less. The temperatures are very pleasant, 22-33oC in the Central Highlands and 26-33oC in South Vietnam.

It rains daily (30 minutes or 1 hour) on the Con Dao Islands and Phu Quoc Island. The daily temperatures on these two islands are approximately 28-31oC. There may be days that the Southwesterly Monsoon is strong and the sea is rough from Binh Thuan to Ca Mau and from Ca Mau to Kien Giang, in the Rach Gia Gulf.
