Floating town

Today a picture from the famous Halong Bay, one of Vietnam's Unesco world heritage sites. The weather could have been better, but the sight of hundred of these islands stretched for kilometer after and kilometer was nevertheless impressive. As impressive was to see how many people literally lived on the water - in floating houses, sometimes isolated and sometimes gathered to form small towns with people constantly commuting between the houses in little boats.
