Bai Tu Long Bay is also associated with stories from ancient times when Vietnam was attacked by its invaders. Thus, Emperor Jade sent Mother Dragon and her children to help the Vietnamese.  After the invaders were defeated, she decided to make their home in the bay due to falling in love with the peaceful seascape.
Therefore the place where Mother Dragon descended is now called Halong Bay, while Bai Tu Long Bay is where the young dragons descended. Bai Tu Long is somehow more stunning and attractive than its neighbor thanks to its natural beauty and special legend.

Bai Tu Long Bay is gorgeous at any time of year (average: 15° to 25°), but for temperate, sunny, and consistent weather in early summer (January to May) and late fall (October to November) are the ideal times to visit. There is more assured sunlight and less rain, and the weather is less unpredictable than it is between July and September when storms are prevalent. From November to April when the weather is cooler, dry, and stable, so this is the perfect option to take part in some energetic activities that our Swan Cruise, Emperor Cruise and Signature Halong Cruise provide kayaking, swimming and local boat services to explore these beautiful places conveniently.
