Fishing Villages Review

Many overnight boat tours will take you to see one or more of the four floating villages on Halong Bay, where 1,600 locals make a living by angling the mystical waters. If they're not fishing or fixing their nets for the next big catch, they may be passing the time swinging on hammocks—or even rowing toward your cruise boat to sell you groceries and souvenirs in a floating "store." These impressive fishing villages have their own schools, wooden shacks, and grocery stores that stay afloat by Styrofoam platforms wrapped in waterproof tarps.
