We were toured around the fishing village by a small boat - observing the floating homes, karsts in the background, fishing boats, villagers and village life. We were shown the small fish farms and all the various processes of fishing. We also toured the cultural and fishing museum. The tour was a nice afternoon on the water and in the village.

We visited the village in November. You can rent kayaks and explore on your own or you can hire a boat that fits 6 people and have a local villager row the boat for you while you relax and enjoy the breathtaking sights. It's truly amazing to see a community of people living on a floating village in the bay

While we were on our journey into the waters of Ha Long Bay, our tour guide asked us to get come outside and get down. I was shocked, thinking why would anyone ask us to get down in the middle of the sea ? And that's is when we noticed this floating village. People actually live here, right in the middle of the sea, so close to all elements of the nature. The floating village is made of bamboo blocks tied together with blue drums keeping it afloat. There were tiny huts, stalls and a kayak section. This is definitely worth the visit.

Great place to use the Kyacks and explore the inlet. Also to see the locals. 1 hour is more than enough time to see.

A village lady rowed us around the village, it was interesting to see how others live and work as most houses have a fish farm in front of their house! These ladies are the same ones that try and sell you trinkets and beer and wine whilst you are on board your cruise. There was a small museum that you could have a look around after the row boat tour. worth a look, all part of the economy.
