Vietnam is a country with a tropical climate, along the territory stretching Vietnam’s climate is distributed into 3 regions: the North has a humid subtropical climate, the Central has a tropical monsoon climate, while the south lies in the savanna tropics. Vietnam’s climate has an average relative humidity of 84-100% all year. However, because of the difference in latitude and the difference in topography, the climate tends to differ quite sharply from one region to another. During the winter or dry season, from November to April next year, the monsoon usually blows from the northeast along the coast of China, through the Gulf of Tonkin, always following the river valleys between the mountain arcs in the East. North brings a lot of moisture; so in most regions the distinction between winter and dry season is only when compared with the rainy or summer seasons. During the summer southwest monsoon, which occurs from May to October, hot air from the Gobi Desert develops further north, causing moist air from the sea to infiltrate inland causing heavy rainfall.
