Spring usually start from March to May, summer from June to August, autumn from September to November, winter from December to February next year. Vietnam is a tropical country so winter affected by monsoons which originate from Siberia, China and Russia. So the air is not low as Australian temperature, normally from 9 to 15 degree Celsius.
