Sit and eat, fish for lunch or even walk the dog on a man-made floating fishing village off Nha Trang Bay. Cobbled together with barrels, wood and other materials, the villages bob up and down in the South China Sea, shimmering in the sunlight.
In the largest village, there is a little restaurant that serves local specialties. Tourists can pluck up courage to fish for their own meals and let the fishermen cook any fish, shrimp and cuttlefish they catch. There are pools divided into different zones to feed different kinds of creatures including white bass, shellfish and moray eels. Food is served with traditional greens, superb spices and dips.
Nestled nearby, are the swiftlets of Salangane Island. Their nests are protected by 24hr outposts, and harvested by locals to be used in birds’ nest soups (considered a delicacy) across Asia.
