Like other areas in southern Vietnam, Phu Quoc's climate is divided into two distinct seasons: the dry season and the rainy season.

Which season is best to travel to Phu Quoc?

Depending on your interests and desires, you can choose the most suitable time to travel to Phu Quoc. Each season of the year brings its own unique and beautiful experiences.

In the dry season: golden sunshine, blue sea, white sand

Dry season in Phu Quoc, from November to April next year, is the ideal time to visit this pearl island. With a mild climate, an average humidity of about 78%, and an average temperature ranging from 27°C to 32°C, visitors can enjoy sunny days, a blue sea, and smooth white sand.

This season has little rain and cool winds, making it the best time to participate in outdoor activities such as windsurfing, scuba diving to see coral, or visiting the pristine nature of Phu Quoc Island.

The space is peaceful and less crowded than in the dry season, making the rainy season a suitable choice for those who love privacy and peace. Resort activities you can consider during the rainy season are exploring primeval forests, visiting historical relics, and experiencing local cuisine such as vermicelli noodles, and herring salad,...

At the time of changing seasons: late October, early April

Late October and early April are the transition times between the rainy and dry seasons in Phu Quoc. Therefore, the weather during this period can change erratically. However, sunshine is still the main thing; rain often appears in the evening or at night, so it does not affect tourism activities too much.

The average temperature ranges from 27°C to 30°C, which is cooler and more comfortable than the dry season. The sea may have large waves at times, but it is still safe for swimming activities.

At this time, plane prices have not increased again, and there are quite a few tourists, so it is also an ideal time of year to travel to Phu Quoc.
