Temperatures In Saigon Reach 21-Year Low?

If you’re a Hanoi native, you’ve probably felt right at home on your commute to work in recent days.

While DTI News wrote that temperatures dropped to a chilly 15C, the coldest since 1993 yesterday morning, puts the lowest temperature in the same time period at 13C. Either way, it’s been downright chilly.

However, there’s no need to run out a buy a winter jacket as the National Centre for Hydro-Meteorological Forecasting predicted that temperatures in southern Vietnam should rise in the coming days.

The average January temperature for Saigon is 22C and the lowest on record is 12C.

The South isn’t the only region that’s been experiencing below average temperatures with Sapa receiving a blanket of snow earlier their month as numbers on the thermometer dropped to 1-2C.
