Trip Report Floods in North and Central Vietnam

Jump to last reply

I have commented on a few posts recently where people are planning trips to Vietnam in October and November so this may well be pertinent for a few of those people.

Typhoon Khanun has recently hit northern Vietnam causing widespread flooding primarily in Hoa Binh and Yen Bai provinces (guess who is/was headed to Yen Bai next week!). Apparently there have been over 40 deaths so far, hundreds of homes destroyed and rail and roads swept away, including apparently the line to Sapa. Ninh Binh apparently is also affected by the rising river levels.

Forewarned is forearmed so anyone travelling to North and Central Vietnam or considering travelling in the near future might like to keep an eye on the developing situation as apparently there is more bad weather to come.
