Type of rain in November?

We will be in Vietnam in mid to late November. We were planning to go to nha trang from the 21st for a few days. I know it's rainy season but am not sure what that means in that region. I can handle a few hours of rain each day but don't want to be stuck inside all day. Is the rain usually short showers? Should I not go and try mui ne or phu quoc instead?

Play it by ear. Easy to get to Nha trang at short notice. See what the weather conditions are like when you get to Vietnam and move around accordingly. Highly unlikely it would rain all day, possibly more sunshine than rain. Heavy rain for an hour or two would be more likely but not every day. Much more to do in Nha Trang, rain or no rain.

Thanks. Nha trang is definitely where we want to be. We've been to south and central America in the rainy season and been fine but some of those nha trang flooding photos have us worried!

I'm sure it will be fine, well lets hope so otherwise we will just have to sit in a nice bar. I guess I will have to buy the beers:-)

I have never seen monsoon type rain like they have in central America here.

Agree with viet1. In Nha Trang had'nt any flood because all of water after the rain will flow to the sea :D

It did rain heavy in November 2010 with localised flooding. As Viet1 say, case of watching the forecasts. Even in 2010, it stopped raining the morning I arrived with brilliant sunshine. Not long after I left, 4 days later, the rain carried on again. It happens but plenty to do in and around Nha Trang.
