Did the two day one night trip.Note you start around noon and finish around noon the following day. The boat travels through some of the islands, beautiful, then anchors before picking up anchor the following day to return. Whilst at a chor there are various excursions. Food accommodation and crew excellent what I saw was beautiful. Would do two one day excursions next time. One way or the other I would not miss.

We really enjoyed the rowing tour to see the floating fishing village and the surrounding scenery including a large cave. The views were lovely and we appreciated seeing the prior way of life before they were relocated.

it was part of our cruise morning activity.
a complete waste of time - and you feel obliged to tip the rawer.
nothing to see. The starting point is floating garbage den.

Gross and covered in trash. The water is brown, smells and is full of bobbing plastic and trash. Needs to be cleaned up. You can’t swim in this water safely

Wonderful place with a view of life as it was and still is for so many fishing people in the region. Luckily not too many tourists when we went

We were toured around the fishing village by a small boat - observing the floating homes, karsts in the background, fishing boats, villagers and village life. We were shown the small fish farms and all the various processes of fishing. We also toured the cultural and fishing museum. The tour was a nice afternoon on the water and in the village.

We visited the village in November. You can rent kayaks and explore on your own or you can hire a boat that fits 6 people and have a local villager row the boat for you while you relax and enjoy the breathtaking sights. It's truly amazing to see a community of people living on a floating village in the bay

While we were on our journey into the waters of Ha Long Bay, our tour guide asked us to get come outside and get down.
I was shocked, thinking why would anyone ask us to get down in the middle of the sea ?
And that's is when we noticed this floating village.
People actually live here, right in the middle of the sea, so close to all elements of the nature.
The floating village is made of bamboo blocks tied together with blue drums keeping it afloat. There were tiny huts, stalls and a kayak section. This is definitely worth the visit.

Great place to use the Kyacks and explore the inlet. Also to see the locals. 1 hour is more than enough time to see.

A village lady rowed us around the village, it was interesting to see how others live and work as most houses have a fish farm in front of their house!
These ladies are the same ones that try and sell you trinkets and beer and wine whilst you are on board your cruise.
There was a small museum that you could have a look around after the row boat tour.
worth a look, all part of the economy.
