The best time to travel is July to August in the cool season or December to January in the hot season. But at this time, the hotel prices are also the most expensive, so you need to book in advance.
From June to October, the temperature in the northern highlands is about 10°C, and the temperature on the coast is about 23°C, and the weather in the plains and low-altitude wildlife sanctuaries is very warm.
