Average temperatures during August range from 24°C to 31°C (75.2°F to 87.8°F).


September: Discovering Hidden Gems

As September arrives, the rainy season continues, presenting the opportunity to discover hidden gems within Halong Bay. Capella Cruise’s experienced crew will guide you to lesser-known areas, allowing you to witness the bay’s natural wonders in their full glory. The charm of waterfalls cascading down cliffs and the tranquility of the mist-shrouded landscape make September a magical time for exploration.
