Being a throwback to a time centuries ago, the floating villages of Halong Bay have romantic beauty. Here, in these villages, local people have the same life for many generations. You might be surprised to hear that children here know how to swim before they are able to walk and more unbelievably that some have their own small boats before being four years old. All attached together, the houseboats making up the villages form the community. Besides dwellings, you can also visit small local schools, a police station, shops and a community centre.
