    Umbrella

    by Willettsworld Written May 9, 2010

    Miscellaneous: Hue's weather is infamously bad: the Truong Son Mountains just to the south seem to bottle up all the moisture, so it's usually misty, drizzly or outright rainy. Things get even wetter than usual in the winter rainy season, especially from February to the end of March. To be safe, bring along an umbrella any time of year. It was drizzling all day when I went on my Perfume River trip which spoilt it a little.

    Rain drops keep falling on my head

    by Mr.Sparkle Updated Mar 31, 2007

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Although it’s too necessary to pack a lot of rain gear for Hue, you should have an umbrella to get to your hotel. The reason why I say its too necessary is because you can pick up really cheap high quality rain gear in town. I got a fantastic rain poncho for a buck fifty. How can you go wrong?

    Mosquito Repellant

    by iwys Updated May 4, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Vietnam is not, as some people might imagine, a mosquito-infested country. Far from it. As another traveller said to me, you get more mosquio bites in Europe than you do here.

    But, the one place where I did get bitten was in Hue. This city is one of the wettest in Vietnam, and of course the Perfume River has plenty of still waters adjacent to its banks.

    So, if the cities had made you wonder why you bothered packing mosquito repellent, Hue will reassure you that you made the right decison.

  • A raincoat

    by Rrroel Written Feb 25, 2003

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Hué has a special climat. Where in the north or south of Vietnam there is a dry season at some time in the year, in Hué it appears to be raining the whole time. Not so nice if you want to explore this lovely city by bicycle or just on foot.
