  • This is a very nice & informative fishing village in Halong bay, scenery was very beautiful & calm but a bit polluted. Kayaking around villages was the best!  more »
  • I was so happy to get a chance to see this as part of our Halong Bay trip. It was quite a site to see how people still maintain their way of life like this for centuries.  more »
  • Stopped in on our tour and got to see many of the families engaged in subsistence fish farming. (They apparently are going to start soon a Home Stay program soon)  more »
