Vietnam is a large country with several distinct climate zones. The VNITO conference will be in Ho Chi Minh City in Southern Vietnam, which has a tropical wet-dry climate. The dry season goes from November to April, and the wet season goes from May to October.
The VNITO conference will be held in mid-October, which is towards the end of the wet season. Although the weather cannot be predicted, some rain is likely in this time. The rains may come in the form of short, heavy showers, or long continuous drizzles. We recommend that you pack a raincoat or umbrella.
Ho Chi Minh City is hot year round. October is a relatively mild and pleasant month, withtemperatures typically ranging from 24 to 31 degrees Celsius. While it may be hot outside, however, hotels and indoor venues (including the conference center) are usually well air-conditioned.
