Hanoi: very wet in August?

by samtin

Replies to my earlier post were very helpful and encouraging and so I have another question: I will be in Hanoi in August and I understand it can be very wet. Does it tend to rain all day or just for a period each day? Do the streets become inches deep in water? If so what footwear would be best? I have a business meeting so have to be reasonably smart. How do people cope with the rains clothes-wise? I assume it will also be very humid/hot.

Thanks,
Sam

Due to extreme climatic changes the World is experiencing at the moment, trying to predict the weather can be difficult because of local, on the day variations.
Most places now are seeing weather conditions well outside the norm.
The information below should be used as a guide only.

Here is the average weather for Hanoi for this time of year.
Enjoy your holiday.

High 90f / 32c
Low 79f / 26c
Rain 11.70in / 298.0mm
Rain days 17
Hours of sun 6

Normally it rais in small burst late in the afternoon. But August is the typhoon season and tropical storms have been hitting the north more often than before. Hanoi does flood (a bit more that a few inches) still as they haven't really got the storm drains sorted yet. For business meetings up there I get a taxi, which gets the transit heat dealt with (air con). Who and where are your business meetings, if they are in hotels or downtown office blocks your going to be fine (once again, air con)

This link may be of interest to you about flooding in Ha Noi. Maybe a VT member can interpret what all this means to you. Maybe it's only certain parts of the city. Seems like it all depends on weather conditions.

No no, it wont rain for all the time in August, now its autumn in Ha Noi and sometime, it rains, but just sometime and the rain doesnt last long, just for some hours or even some minutes. Anyway wearing the rain coat isnt very hot, u can handle with it, believe me.

Travel Tips for Hanoi

Street Market

by jujub

Hanoi has lots of street markets, some are so inconspicuously blended with an alley, that you might walk right past it and not even notice that it was there.

The pasageway for pedestrians is very narrow, and it gets even narrower when a motorbike wants to pass by. There will always be some light motorized traffic in those alleys.

This street market was very close to the Melia Hotel; they sell food, vegetables, live chickens, incense, clothes, shoes, haircuts, pots and pans, etc.

Ear of pigs!?

by hientonkin

Yes, ear of pigs. It's one kind of Nem ( fresh spring rolls ). Lovely to try, if you dont dare, pass by to have a look how crowded it's.
Trademark by the name " Nem tai Ba Hong " ( Mrs Hong - Ear's pork spring rolls ). It's a place a a gourmet in Hanoi, and of course, very local - place for young people, students, pupils gathering and chatting . Enjoy the feeling wrapping the spring rolls yourself with herbs, figs, and deep it in the sauce.. Yummy!
Very cheap as well. For two, it costs about 15,000 vnd ( 1 usd).
Add: 74 Cau Go st. Hanoi

Watches everywhere

by myspices about Shops along Hang Dao street

They looked so real - have a closer look and if you are an expert, you will see the difference. They are cheap and you can purchase them to give as gifts. Bargain and bargain. Somehow, the sellers will try to close the deal. Faked watches. Good as gifts USD22 for a "Rolex"

Legends and tales

by King_Golo about Water Puppet Theater

Water Puppet Theatre is a traditional Vietnamese art. During the rainy seasons long ago, people created this kind of theater. It is played in the water! Puppets are moved with long wooden sticks and play scenes from rural Vietnam as well as the most common legends - for instance the one about Hoan Kiem Lake. Nowadays, this sort of theater is about to die out, were it not for Hanoi's Water Puppet Theatre and a few other companies which is known to be one of the most professional groups. It is very popular with tourists and nearly every visitor of Hanoi goes there. Unfortunately, in the countryside the tradition is not as vital anymore and it's hard to find players.
Hanoi's theatre is generally very crowded. Therefore, each day four presentations are staged. In order to see best, choose a seat in the front rows. From behind it sometimes may be hard to see anything at all as nearly everybody takes pictures and you might have to watch the show through erected arms with videocameras and the like!

Here's a list of the contents of a show:

1. Raising the festival flag
2. The Narrator
3. Dragon Dance
4. On a Buffalo with a Flute
5. Agriculture
6. Catching Frogs
7. Rearing Ducks and catching Foxes
8. Fishing
9. Harvest Festival
10. Lion Dance
11. Phoenix Dance
12. Legend of the Restored Sword
13. Children playing in the Water
14. Boat Racing
15. Unicorns playing with a Ball
16. Fairy Dance
17. Dance of the four holy Animals (Unicorn, Dragon, Tortoise, Phoenix) none

Hanoi International Airport

by Ewingjr98

Hanoi Airport is new and modern, quite a contrast from HCMC's Vietnam War-era airport. The only problem is its location, quite a long drive from the city. Not as many airlines fly into Hanoi as into HCMC, so you may have more trouble getting here. We flew Vietnam airlines from HCMC to Hanoi, then again from Hanoi to Seoul. The hour-long flight sure beats the day-long train trip.

Be aware of the exit tax when you depart the country!
