Vung Vieng Fishing Village is a quintessentially Vietnamese village near Bai Tu Long Bay and Halong Bay. Vung Vieng is a small, tranquil floating Vietnamese fishing village situated around 25 km from the mainland in the Quang Ninh Province. Located amidst karst boulders, this village is accessible only by boat. Vung Vieng can be reached by taking a motorboat from Tuan Chau Harbour. But upon reaching the village, you will have to transfer to smaller bamboo boats to go around, oared by natives of the area.
Although Vietnam is quite renowned for the likes of such villages, Vung Vieng is actually one of the four remaining of its kind in the Ha Long Bay region. And among the four, it is easily the most harmonious, community-centred and ecologically sustainable one, which still fosters its traditional ways and takes care of its roots in authenticity.
A visit to Vung Vieng is rewarding in terms of stunning landscapes of Bai Tu Long Bay and a heavenly boat ride through its nooks and crannies. You will also be left spellbound by the cultural enrichment and simplicity of livelihood going hand in hand in the fishing community of the tiny village.
