Vung Vieng is located in the heart of Bai Tu Long Bay, 24 km from the mainland. You will not only be immersed in the quiet and peaceful location viewing the charming landscape, and discovering the cultural life of the fishermen but also will be instructed in the fine arts of sailing and casting fish nets.
In the past, Vung Vieng floating village has a population of hundreds local livings. They live on fishing and tourism activities, with food and water being transported from the mainland of a dozen kilometers from there. The colorful floating houses, home to multiple generations, give you a sense of the lifestyle of the local people, who are happy in spite of their modest circumstances.
You will be enchanted by the beauty of the boats, the nets slung over posts in front of the house, the simple but hospitable fishermen, and the small children smiling as they go to school. This idyllic scene shows the traditional character of a floating fishing village.
Nowadays, according to the policy of authority, all of residents of floating village have to move on land to reside for the sake of ensuring children’s education and life quality. Thus now it looks like the museum through floating houses, school, pearl farms… But we still believe that Vung Vieng village is still an interesting attraction that partly provides our guests a glimpse of “floating lives” on Halong Bay. It was an outstanding feature of local fishing villagers living on the World Heritage Site.
