Vung Vieng Fishing Village at Halong Bay
Vung Vieng Fishing Village in Bai Tu Long (Halong Bay). The scenery at Halong Bay is forever spectacular, but theres more to it than just infinite Limestone Karst mountains. There are many small fishing villages, and at this one I was mostly surprised by the way of life above water and some of their traditions, their houses/boat houses and even a school! Here they worked quite a bit with pearls.
