Halong Bay Cruise Seasons

Halong Bay attracts visitors year-round with peak season from October through April. January to March is often cool and drizzly, and the ensuing fog can make visibility low, but adds bags of eerie atmosphere. From May to September tropical storms are frequent, and year-round tourist boats sometimes need to alter their itineraries, depending on the weather. November's sunny blue-sky days and lack of crowds make it the best time to make a beeline here. When is the best time to visit Halong Bay really depends on your own definition of a perfect trip.

Peak season cruise: From October to April

Peak season in Ha Long Bay runs from October to April. After the heat and humidity of the summer, the cooler temperatures – usually between 15oC to 23oC – are perfect for sightseeing and touristic activities. While rain and mist is more common at this time of year, the conditions give Ha Long Bay an ethereal quality and do not hamper its beauty in any way.

It can be quite busy, with many overseas visitors choosing the Christmas and New Year period to take their holiday. Typically, Ha Long Bay attracts tourists from Europe, America and other countries experiencing cold winters, as well as those from Japan, South Korea and China. Lunar New Year – in late February or early March – is also a busy time of the year when families take time out of their busy lives to spend quality time together.

If you are considering visiting Ha Long Bay during the peak season, you should note that prices are generally 10 – 20 % higher than the off-peak season, although you can still grab a bargain. Availability may be an issue, so book your cruise early to secure the best price and avoid disappointment.


Off-peak season cruise: From May to September


Temperatures in the off-peak season, which runs from May to September, ranges from between 20oC to over 30oC with high humidity. With an average of seven hours of sunshine, water activities, like fishing, kayaking, diving and swimming are an ideal respite from the heat.

This time of year usually attracts visitors from Asia – June to August is high season for Vietnamese customers – as well as from Europe and the US and other countries in the south who wish to swap winter for a tropical climate. It is during August to September, that cruises have lowest number of guests – which means popular tourist spots are less crowded and more enjoyable.

Travelling to Ha Long Bay at this time of the year will guarantee you the best price for luxury cruising, including all Halong Bay Cruises, particularly if you book your trip between May, June, July, August and September, You should be aware that this time of year is monsoon season, there may be infrequent typhoons and your cruise may be cancelled due to inclement weather. In that case be sure to contact your agent for alternative solutions and in many cases, choose to stay one or two nights in a hotel on the mainland and the next day you may continue the cruise with sunshine.
