The weather in the summer is a factor to attract guests coming to Halong Bay. The temperature is around 29oC-30oC. The climate is sometimes quite high but due to the wind from the sea, it’s still not uncomfortable as other regions in the North of Vietnam. The water is cool, clean and clear. Swimming is always the best choice here. Be prepared with a towel and swimwear and enjoy the clear atmosphere. On most boats, it is necessary for you if you bring your own beverages. But you can try some cocktails or some drinks which are served by the top chefs. I bet that you will be not disappointed in this. Sunbathing under the sunlight on the boats or doing Yoga in the late afternoon is also an ideal choice for you.
