Halong bay cruises in sunset
Northern Vietnam is definitely a must-visit destination as you would not want to miss a capital city full of rushing motorbikes and amazing street foods; or a famous Ha Long Bay with magnificent seascapes and breathtaking limestone mountains; or high mountainous regions filled with colorful cultural diversion, overlapping paddy fields and amazing landscapes. Hanoi, Halong Bay and Sapa are just some of the popular names among many other beautiful places in the North that you may want to visit.
Ha Noi in the Autumn
Summer and Autumn in Northern Vietnam provide very good weather for traveling in the North. For oceanic destinations like Ha Long Bay, summer is definitely the best time to visit. However, for the rest of Northern Vietnam including Hanoi and the mountainous areas (such as Sapa, Moc Chau, Tay Bac), Autumn to early Winter (October to December) is surely the ideal time for travelers. The clear sky and cool temperature (somewhere around 20 degrees on average) during this period will make your trip much more pleasant.

As the tourist season ends in August, exploring the North during October – December should be easier to manage in terms of time as well as reservations for hotels, tours and transportation. There are not many people traveling during this season, it will be an ideal choice for those who want to avoid tourist crowds in such popular destinations as Ha Long Bay or Sapa.
