This was also witnessed by many of the crews. Thus emerged the European image of the Asian dragon.

How Is The Weather?

The best time to visit Halong Bay
October to December
The most popular period of the year for western tourists and visitors, October to December for some people can be the best time to go to Halong Bay as the weather is not sweaty, the waters are still calm as during summers, and the sky can still be blue and clear, depending on which month you go with.
The only cons during this period is the incredible number of tourists from all over the globe flocking Halong Bay usually all at the same time, especially during Christmas to New Year’s seasons.
Another disappointing factor during the high season for Halong Bay is that the weather can be mostly dull, grey, and quite chilly, as winter in the northern part of Vietnam starts around the end of November and can last until early April.
Again, the best way to avoid disappointment is to double check all necessary information with your tour operator or cruise company before booking anything. It’s always best to be prepared before flying to your final destination rather than find out the worst is yet to come.
