If you would like to cruise on Halong Bay in the winter, it’s also a good chance because you can avoid the crowded scene of tourists in the summer. Nevertheless, you should consider the semi occasional typhoons which may make your cruise on the bay be cancelled. Though, this inconvenient weather case will not last long, maybe just a few days so you should contact with your agent to arrange your itinerary again.
