Life On The Water | DWS, Ep. 2

Not everyone on Ha Long Bay is there for climbing and in fact the bay is home to over 1,500 individuals living on boats or floating settlements. The inhabitants of the bay are sustained, for the most part, by the fishing trade; plying the waters for fresh fish and molluscs. With the area attracting large numbers of tourists each year, many local residents have diversified, offering boat tours of the karsts, with some boats catering specifically to climbers.
