Best time of year to travel Vietnam

Hi I’m planning on travelling to Vietnam for 2 weeks. The places I have in mind to visit are:

Hanoi

Halong Bay

Danang

Ninh Binh

Hue

Hoi An

I know the the weather differs in Vietnam and it’s probably impossible to get great weather for all the above places in a single 2 week trip. That being said could anyone advice when would be the most likely time to get good weather across all the above places.

"Spring or late Fall/Xmas"

Doesn't Spring push into Xmas?

Or does that depend on where you are in the world? ;-)

Anyway, to the OP, I like Spring, which is September / October, which is actually Autumn, which can also be known as Fall in some parts.

"I think I will settle on May..."

Excellent, it will negate the need for any warm clothing. ;-)
