    Due to the constant rains and heavy humidity, it is best to avoid visiting Ho Chi Minh City in July and instead wait until the drier months to plan your trip.

    The upside of traveling to Ho Chi Minh City in July is that tourist numbers are much lower than the rest of the year, as there are no significant festivals or holidays taking place.

    Similar to June, July is a month of tropical fruits. If you visit Ho Chi Minh City during July, consider visiting the local fruit markets and nearby fruit orchards to taste some of Vietnam’s exotic fruits, such as durian, dragon fruit, rambutan, and mangosteen.

    To escape Ho Chi Minh City’s constant rains, consider exploring some of the city’s spectacular indoor attractions. Visit the Museum of Traditional Vietnamese Medicine for an in-depth look at Vietnamese medicinal practices and traditional architecture, or the War Remnants Museum to learn about the history of the Vietnam War and the First Indochina War.

    Other points of interest include the Cu Chi Tunnels, Saigon Central Post Office and the Golden Dragon Water Puppet Theater.
