Best time to visit Halong Bay

During the months: 9,10,11,12,1,2,3,4 are the best time to travel to Halong Bay but this is the winter time and might be good for foreign travelers. It is a bit cold during moths 1,2,3 but these months are always peak seasons every year.




This area is one of the most popular destinations for vacations in Vietnam. Though there will be more tourists in the area in the spring and summer, the area is still a good place to go. In some situations, it’s actually better that there are more people there. There will be more places to go for food and more entertainment in the area.



When the weather is good you can go out in the bay on a junk, or a boat, and take a tour of the area. You can go swimming if you wish and just explore the beauty of the area.



You can’t do all of that in the fall and winter because it gets too cold. When you visit the area you should pack a swim suit, some shorts and a t-shirt. You should have enough clothes to keep you comfortable.



If you travel Halong from July to September, there may be infrequent typhoons and your cruise may be cancelled. In that case be sure to contact your agent for alternative solutions and in many cases, choose to stay one or two nights in a hotel on the mainland and the next day you may continue the cruise with sunshine.
