Because of the clear segmentation, in all seasons, Halong is an attractive destination for many tourists. In summer, the ideal time for you is from March to May or from August to October. Especially, you shouldn’t visit Halong from June to July because at that time, the number of tourists coming here rises dramatically, which leads to higher service charge.
