Kim Hoi An is not southern Vietnam but the central part and will be cooler than the South which roughly terminates at Mui Ne area. In the south Jan/Feb is the best time for temperature, but still a little humid in HCMC.

In another thread you ask whether Vung Tau is worthwhile for a day and the answer is probably yes but to make the most of it stay overnight and take the morning bus from there to "Mui Ne". Mui Ne is a generic term for the general Resort areas of Phan Thiet the principle city. Ham Tien is the main resort area where most resorts are absolute water and beachfront. I say water because at some parts the resorts extend to a seawall because sea level rise has caused some sand loss after storm events.

From "Mui Ne" to Hoi An is best done by coach to Nha Trang and flight to DaNang for Hoi An. You can take the train from Moung Man to Da Nang but its not recommended as its slow and probably only usefull if you take the night train.

The coaches do go on to Da Nang from Mui Ne but again its not real good.

I have visited both Feb and March.

Weather was very hot and sticky in HCMC, same in Hoi An and cooler in Hanoi with a bit of rain.
