Goats, Fishermen and Floating Markets

The islands of Ha Long Bay are often overgrown with dense jungle and thus offer numerous animals habitat: monkeys, goats and numerous birds such as eagles, cranes and parrots have settled here. The steep, rugged cliffs make the islands largely uninhabitable, with only a few fishing families being the exception. They sell their goods on the famous floating markets, which exude a special magic with their hustle and bustle and the extraordinary range.

Since the formation of the limestone formations around 300 million years ago, the weather has ensured that impressive caves have been created. These can also be viewed on a tour of Ha Long Bay.
