My husband and I will be in Vietnam in December 2012 / January 2013. At the end of our trip (mid January 2013) we will finish up in Hanoi and want to go out on a junk (most likely Bhaya cruise at this stage) in Halong Bay.
I have read the various forums and there appear to be mixed reviews about doing this during January. I would be grateful to hear from anyone who has gone at this time of year - in particular most of the cruises involve kayaking and outdoor activities, will it be too cold for this? We don't want to travel all that way and find it is too cold to go out of our cabin.
And for anyone who has been at this time of year - who did you use and do you recommend one or two nights.
Thanks for your help.
