7.Halong Bay’s weather
The tours to visit the Best of the North Vietnam couldn’t complete without traveling Halong bay- the magnificent and poetic bay- the precious present the Nature Mother gave for Vietnam.
Halong Bay’s climate is symbolic of the climate of North Vietnam; featuring all four seasons. In summer, it's hot, humid and rainy, while monsoons flourish. In winter, it's cold, dry, and sees little rainfall.
The best time of year to visit Halong Bay is during the spring or fall, especially from March to May with constant sunshine. As the bay is situated in the northern part of the country, it can get colder in the fall and winter, and though you won't see extremes such as blizzards, it's still a lousy place to be when it gets cold. This area is one of the most popular destinations for vacations in Vietnam. Though there will be more tourists in the area in the spring and summer, the area is still a good place to go. In some situations, it's actually better that there are more people there. There will be more places to go for food and more entertainment in the area. When the weather is good you can go out in the bay on a junk, or a boat, and take a tour of the area. You can go swimming if you wish and just explore the beauty of the area. You can't do all of that in the fall and winter because it gets too cold. When you visit the area you should pack a swim suit, some shorts and a t-shirt. You should have enough clothes to keep you comfortable.
If you travel Halong from August to November, there may be infrequent typhoons and your cruise may be cancelled. 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.

The natural elements seems pretty well preserved hopefully the in-flock of tourists won’t cause too much harm. Too many stair to go up, but once you're on the top you have the excellent view of Halong.
10.Thien Cung Cave
There are several caves around the Ha Long Bay area, and a visit to the Thien Cung Caves was included in our boat trip. I was told that you can not decide yourself what cave you want to visit: People on day trips visits one cave and people on overnight cruises visits another cave – and it changes during the season...
The caves of Thien Cung are located 4 km from Ha Long City. The way to the caves is a bit demanding, going up a small path covered on both sides by thick forest. The caves are 130 meter long and you are guided though the caves by following a snake-like trail. Inside the caves there are many beautiful stalactites and stalagmites, but I also found the colourful lighting very nice. The name means “Heavens Palace” and it is said that the Thien Cung Caves are the most beautiful caves of Ha Long Bay.
