A small vietnamese fishing village in Phu Quoc

When I went to Vietnam this summer, I traveled as a part of a larger group from Norway , and that was a very fine trip. But on one of the last days I just felt like doing some exploring on my own.

I found a lovely Picture on a local postcard, and I wanted to find out where it was taken. It showed a couple of woman standing on a bridge of some sorts. I found the bridge , and it looked something like this.

After asking in the lobby of my hotel I found that the bell boy had a brother that lived in that village, and he could arrange a driver to take me there. I had a very good time getting to walk around with the locals taking images. And even if it is a poor country village in a small island in Vietnam, I have to say that It is one of the more interesting places that I have had the pleasure of taking images of.

This was the general feel of the village.

And as you can see, fishing was the primary Activity in the village.
