  • The rainy season is from May to October. Rain is dramatic, but it does not last for too long, which makes the weather super humid.

The length of your stay depends much on your choice of destinations. The West region contains up to 12 provinces; each features unique floating markets.

As a result, we highly recommend you visit some popular markets (you will find the list down below) where English speaking guides are available.
