I'm going on a 3 month trip starting with Vietnam in the middle of August. I'll be in Vietnam for about 1 month before moving on to Cambodia.
I've read up on where to go in Vietnam and thought I'd either fly in to Hanoi and make my way south or fly to Saigon and just stay in the southern part of Vietnam. While reading I came across some information that during the period I'll be there the weather will be really bad in the north (like typhoons raging unpredictably and violently a lot of the time).
So my question is, would I be better of just staying in the south or is the information I have exaggerated?
