All travellers should be aware that annual monsoon season is from 1 September until mid-December at least!
Great care by all visitors should be taken during extreme rains & when there are strong onshore North East winds during lunar calendar days close to 1st or 14th – this is when danger of flooding in Hoi An and surrounding areas are highest.
Be aware that at least ground floor levels of some houses in Hoi An flooded every years. Some locations such as low lying islands of Cam Nam risk is even higher of flooding. Some street on the river banks flood and are under water for sometimes a few weeks at a time. This is a public health issue.
Cham Islands can NOT be accessed during much of the monsoon season. There are VERY few “seaworth” boats which are capable of going to Cham Islands – most boats are wooden and of flat bottom design (no matter how large they are!).
It’s worth bearing in mind that a visit in the low season offers the benefits of lower hotel rates and fewer tourists, and even in the rainy season you can still get plenty of sunshine. Given the variety of things to do in Hoi An, even if the weather isn’t great, it need not spoil your stay. If it’s too hot, you can cool down in the sea or by the pool; if it’s raining cats and dog you can head for one of the historic houses or museums, or spend the day in tailors’ shops ordering up the perfect outfit.
In truth, there is no bad time to visit Hoi An. Do your research and you’ll not likely be disappointed.
