  • This serene village is also known by the name Vong Vieng, which comes from the sound of the lids of the pots being blown

The entrance to Vung Vieng Fishing Village is thought of as being provided by Cao Cave. If you pass by here, you ought to stop and take a little detour.

  • Admire the idyllic beauty of Vung Vieng fishing village

The village’s traditional income came solely from fishing in exchange for food they could not cultivate and water they had to import from the mainland. Visitors to Halong Bay now bring another supplemental sum by providing rowing boat services. However, the floating village still keeps its traditional character and enchanting beauty of boats, nets, houses, and simple yet hospitable people.

  • Participate in the daily life of locals

Although smaller than Cua Van Fishing Village and placed second and third in Ha Long Bay, Vung Vieng Fishing Village is still a tiny fishing community. Closely spaced raft homes make up the village, where guests may observe male and female singing, pearl manufacturing, and dragon boat racing, in addition to other aspects of daily life.
