UNESCO World Heritage Site – Ha Long Bay is a major tourist attraction in Vietnam, and rightly so. The bay is home to over a thousand jungle clad limestone karsts, several of which are hollow and contain enormous caves. I next visit Cat Ba Island, the largest island in the bay. Half of Cat ba is National Park. I interview Tuan, a local cafe owner. He takes me for a tour of the island and we also visit a floating village, where people farm fish in small enclosures.
