The majority of tourists nowadays follow the well beaten paths organized by travel agents: travel to Ha Long Bay, enjoy an overnight cruise for two or three days, and return. A tour is absolutely the right thing to do when visiting this gem, however, do yourself a favor and spend a couple of more days to enjoy its modern entertainment venues, visit attractions away from the bay, and the best part - feast on the world's best seafood. Although cruises do offer gourmet seafood, a few days off the boat will enhance your culinary experiences, regarding both quantity and quality. Ha Long Bay’s true delicacies like Vietnamese calamari, horseshoe crab, mantis shrimp noodle, ‘sa sung’ and ‘ruoc lo’ may be not found on any cruises.

Many travel websites state that October to April is the best time to visit Ha Long Bay. Is this true? The answer is yes and no. Ha Long Bay endures two distinct seasons: the hot summers (May to September) and the cold winter (October to April). Due to the high frequency of heavy rains and storms in summer leading to cruise cancellations, many agents advise you to visit Ha Long Bay during winter. Global warming and unpredictable weather developments make any advice more of a guess. For example, August and September are normally known as summer months with high temperatures, but this year it's pretty cool and pleasant, making it the ideal time for a cruise and to avoid the cold chill in the air from October to April. Hence, the best answer to the question: “When is the best time to visit Ha Long Bay?” is any time of year, just check the weather forecast before booking.

Visitors traveling to this fairyland sensibly opt for a well-organized tour from Ha Long agency, sightseeing tours to the most picturesque islets and grottos, and recreational activities. It is believed that no destination in Vietnam can offer such a comprehensive experience in a limited time frame like Ha Long Bay. Do not miss these great opportunities: https://halongbaytoursfromhanoi.com/
