Don’t want your winters to be all about snows and fairy lights and hot chocolate? Well, Hanoi breaks all those conventions to offer UAE residents a totally different yet thrilling winter journey. The moderate climate means that temperatures rarely drop in single figures or negatives, so it’s a great destination for those who don’t like too much cold.
Besides, rainfall is also scarce during winters in Hanoi. Except for an occasional shower, the temperature is perfect for constant outdoor travels and explorations. You can visit Hanoi’s literary sites, architectural heritage, as well as its natural wonders at any time of the day.
The city also celebrates festivals such as Tet Festival and the Perfume Pagoda Festival during winters which are a perfect way to explore the rich and diverse Vietnamese culture.
If you have a travel card, then there’s really no reason you should stay back in UAE for your winter holidays. A quick escapade to any of these breathtaking destinations is not only possible, but it’s also a great way to put your travel card to the best use there is.
