Weather in Vietnam in September on the sunny side yet depends on which part of the country you are visiting. Rainfall is higher in the northern part of Vietnam, especially in the mountains. The Ho Chi Minh city in the southern part is visited quite often than most other cities in the country as it has tropical downpours at this time.

The humidity level will be as high as 94%, which brings me to the point of carrying a with you during the tours.
