Vung Vieng Fishing Village located in the off the beaten track Bai Tu Long bay, not far from its world famous sister Halong Bay. It’s a floating village, very small as it is only inhabited by 50 families.
Away from the busy and touristic Cat Ba island and Ha Long Bay, the village seduces travelers by its authentic features and its location at the heart of an amazing landscape of limestone mountains rising from the emerald sea of the Tonkin Gulf. The charms and peacefulness of the village have attracted more and more visitors for the past years. The everyday life of the villagers is closely linked with water and fishing activities. Most of the local people work as fishermen or do aquaculture. But few of them sell small goods and snacks to tourists passing by. The life here is far from the inland lifestyle.
The floating village is only accessible by sea and can be reached after a few hour trip through organized tours.
Journeys to the Vung Vieng fishing village allow visitors to explore more the World Heritage site Bai Tu Long. Going next to amazing rocky pillars dotted on the bay and through impressive caves.
