Why is the Ho Tram weather in the winter so nice compared to Da Nang and Nha Trang?

The weather in Ho Tram is nice all year round, especially during the months of October to March. Unlike Da Nang and Nha Trang, which are in the middle of Vietnam. Ho Tram, which is in South Vietnam, is lucky to not get the winter storms from the Pacific Ocean because South Vietnam and Ho Tram are protected from the Pacific Ocean winter storms and winds by the Philippines, which often gets harsh weather during the winter months. Ho Tram from October to March is characterized by calm winds and sunny warm weather with 20-25 days of sunshine per month, compared to Da Nang where it gets very strong winds, only 10 days a month of sunshine, and lots of rain and storms.

Can I check in early or checkout late at Hotels in Ho Tram?

You should check with your hotel regarding early check in and late check out. Most hotels and resorts tend to be flexible, subject to occupancy. Also, most welcome you to come early and enjoy the resort and their facilities and check into your room when it is ready. For late check out, you can remove your baggage from the hotel room and check out, then spend the rest of your day enjoying the resort or Ho Tram. Before you leave for the city or the airport you would pick up your luggage at the concierge.

Does it make sense to spend a few days in Ho Chi Minh before driving to Ho Tram?

It makes alot of sense to spend a day or two in Ho Chi Minh before going to Ho Tram, since these two destinations provide very different experiences. Ho Chi Minh is constantly improving its culinary offering and nightlife. A day or two in HCM lets you see what HCM, the largest, most vibrant city in Vietnam has to offer. Ho Tram, in contrast, provides you with a relaxing beach experience at newly built international standard resorts. These two experiences together give you the full South Vietnam experience - in as short as 4-5 days!

Taxis are always available 24/7, especially at the large resorts and hotels. Have your concierge help you communicate with the taxi drivers. Many resorts also have private cars to book if you would like.

Why is Ho Tram not well known yet?

The infrastructure to Ho Tram, including the highways, were finally completed only a few years ago. So in 2010, most of the people in Ho Chi Minh had never heard of Ho Tram. Also most of the new resorts and hotels were completed in the past 5 years - before covid and after covid - so most of what you see in Ho Tram is brand new. Over the next few years, as more international guests get to know Ho Tram, it is expected that Ho Tram will rapidly become an international destination. The proximity to HCM and the new airport, combined with some of the best weather all year round will propel the growth of Ho Tram.

What foreign tourists are in Ho Tram?

Ho Tram attracts foreign tourists from Korea, Australia, Europe, Japan, China -- and increasingly from all over Asia and the USA.

Ho Tram is also now becoming the playground of wealthy locals and expats living in Ho Chi Minh, especially during the summers and holidays. Increasingly, Ho Tram's great winter weather is attracting Koreans and Europeans who want to escape the cold and go to the best beach weather in Vietnam during the months of October to March.
