Vietnam- Ha Long Bay

Pictures taken at Ha Long Bay Vietnam.

Stayed over night on ‘junk” boat. Climbed to top of mountain to get good views. Also had a swim.

Houses are on rafts so they rise and fall with the tides. They have no electricity. A few have a generator which they can only run an hour a day, it’s all the gasoline they can afford.Most houses have a fish farm under neath, which they take to the market. A “supermarket boat” comes around a few times a day. The kids looked really happy playing in the water and their little boats.

The day after we all left the area they had a typhoon. the village is built in the shelter of the mountains for protection
