Home >> Halong Weather
Located in Quang Ninh province, a Northeast part of Vietnam, Halong Bay is shaped by northern typical climate with two distinct seasons- hot and moist summer versus dry and cold winter. Hot days normally start from May to September while cold winds often start from November to March. The rest of the years are transitional months which see the combination of both patterns. The average temperature of the bay hovers around 15-25 Celsius degree with the hottest time of June- August. However, the cool breeze of this sea area significantly reduces the heat during these tough summer months. It is quite cold in the winter, especially for those who are not from temperate zone such as North America or Europe.
Tips: Sunscreen and hat should be included in your luggage in the summer; light coat or jacket should be brought during winter time.
