Halong Bay is not only famous for its unusual rock formation which are dotted around the Bay, there are floating houses and small communities which are living on the sea since long time ago and once you are in there you will have chance to see them, they are mainly living by farming off the Bay and or fishing and selling the fruits to the cruise passengers.
