When is the best time for cruise trip in Halong?

Like other areas in the Northern of Vietnam, Halong has 4 seasons. It has a very cold winter lasting for about 5 months from December to February and one very hot summer which runs from June to October. In fact, travelling to Halong in both seasons will bring you fantastic experience.

Personally, I think the time from March to May and from August to October may be the best choices for you whereas some people believe that tourists should visit Halong Bay in June or July. In deed, the weather in the 2 months is so cool, the sky is clear and it seems an ideal time to have a cruise trip. However, it means that this is the high season so you have to face a lot of problems such as higher costs of all tourist goods and services and uncomfortable space due to a number of visitors. Besides, you have to be conscious of sudden storms that usually come in the 2 months.

Therefore, I recommend you to travel to Halong and experience cruise trip in either between March and May or between August and October. The weather is quite comfortable, and you don’t need to worry whether your trip will be spoilt by rains. Also, the number of tourists is not too large. Dragon Pearl cruise Halong bay
