Boats cruises halted on Halong Bay 1-August-2019

Halong Bay Authority has stopped granting permits to boats and overnight cruise junks to make tours on the bay from 10 A.M on 1-August-2019 due to the expected strike of the Wipha Typoon (No.3 Typhoon in the East Sea of Vietnam in 2019).

The typhoon is brushing through the Leizhou Peninsular (China) and is expected to make its way to the sea between Quang Ninh (including Halong Bay) and Hai Phong. The typhoon has caused heavy rains in several regions in northern Vietnam from the morning of August 1st, 2019. More rains and torrential rains are expected from the evening of the same day.
