When is the best time to visit Halong Bay?

Halong Bay features the typical weather of the North of Vietnam with four clear seasons: spring, summer, fall, and winter. It bears a hot climate with occasional rain from April to September and from October to March it is quite cool and comfortable. The best time to cruise on Halong Bay is in Spring and Fall (from October to April) because the weather seems to be cool and you experience the best time of a year but you can decide to travel at any time.

How is the weather like?

Halong Bay has a humid & tropical climate with hot, moist summer and cold, dry winter. It has the average yearlong humidity at over 80% and often fluctuates from 70% to 90%. The average temperature of Halong Bay is about 24 degrees Celsius, in which the summer bears 34oC and can reach to 38oC. But thanks to the closed-sea location, the heat will be reduced and tourists will feel more comfortable as taking in Halong Bay Cruises as well as join in outside activities at the beach such as swimming, kayaking, snorkeling, volleyball, etc during this time.

Moreover, cruising at this moment will enable you to enjoy the sunshine and the stunning landscapes as well as blue clear water. On the other hand, the weather here can get colder in winter with the temperature as low as 13oC, sometimes 5oC so it may be hard to have a sunny cruise on Halong Bay in this season. However, though situated near the sea, Halong Bay seldom bears any heavy storm or blizzards, so you should not be worried about the disaster.

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 canceled. Though, this inconvenient weather case will not last long, maybe just a few days so you should contact your agent to arrange your itinerary again.

Overall, it is fine to take in Halong Bay Cruises all year round. Though occasionally there are some unexpected cases of weather leading to trip canceled, each time and each season will bring you a diverse feeling that you will never forget.
