[EN] At Halong Bay, there is “A community of around 1,600 people live on Hạ Long Bay in four fishing villages: Cửa Vạn, Ba Hang, Cống Tàu and Vông Viêng in Hùng Thắng commune, Hạ Long city. They live on floating houses and are sustained through fishing and marine aquaculture (cultivating marine biota), plying the shallow waters for 200 species of fish and 450 different kinds of mollusks (wikipedia).” Cửa Vạn is the largest fishing village and one of the top attractions of Halong Bay. Where we arrived the village, we could choose to explore the village ourselves on kayak or to take small boat rowed by the locals. We decided to take the second choice to capture the daily life of the villagers.
Cửa Vạn village is located in bay and is protected by islands.
