ha long bay day 2


On the second day of our Ha Long Bay cruise we visited some local floating villages via traditional wood boats. Viet people have been living and fishing this area for hundreds of years, but its UNESCO World Heritage status has created new regulations and restrictions on this lifestyle. Only some fishing villages still exist, and many fishermen now live on their boats for only few day stretches before having to return to land. House dogs are ubiquitous throughout Vietnam, and we were only a little surprised to see that that rule isn’t broken, even when your house is on the water.
