Peak season to visit Vietnam is from February to April and August to October.
Shoulder Season: December to March is when the Vietnamese New Year or Tet Festival is celebrated here, so prices soar. The northern part of the country has cold weather, while in the south, the sun shines bright.
Off-season: September to November, autumn season, and April to June, is a great time to explore the country when prices are low and tourists few.

From War Remnants Museum we walked to Reunification Palace or the Independence Palace. Originally it was built as residence for French Governor General. Later, when Vietnam was split into North Vietnam and South Vietnam, the building served as the presidential home for South Vietnam's President. On April 30th, 1975, North Vietnamese tanks crashed the gates and took over the palace. Vietnam became one country again in 1975, and since then palace is referred to as Reunification Palace. Entrance fee is VND 20,000. While its an important historic symbol for Vietnam, the building itself looks unimpressive.
THINGS TO DO IN HO CHI MINH CITY:Start your day by visiting The Reunification Palace which contains a wonderful mixture of art and history. This was the headquarters of the South Vietnamese government during the war, where the North stormed through the gates to receive the resignation from the South and in essence win the war.
A landmark in Ho Chi Minh, this is the place where South and North Vietnam reunited, ending the acrimonious wars and hostility. We didn’t explore much here as time was ticking away for booking tickets for the much awaited Water Puppet Show in advance.Day2:Mekong Delta
Vietnam is a thin strip of land in Southeast Asia, bordered by Cambodia, Laos and the South China Sea. Known for its buzzing cities, spectacular beaches and incredible street food, this country is very popular in the backpacking circuit. Vietnam is brought to life by the myriad magical experiences it offers. Its cities are full of life with happy locals zip-zapping on colourful scooters, the countryside offers a landscape that is unforgettable, Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park has an impressive network of caves to explore, the interiors are teeming with rich biodiversity and there is the classic Vietnam tourism picture to take with farmers moving about with conical hats. What's more – as a tourist, this is a great time to visit this exotic country with hotels coming up almost everywhere and the government focussing on improving road network to make access easier and comfortable for visitors.
