Description

Floating city in Mekong Delta, Vietnam. From around 2009. You can find these floating houses pretty much all around Asia. The villagers cultivate freshwater fish and shrimps in nets and wire baskets under their houses - a major export product of the region. This traditional way of fish farming is slowly dying, as larger companies are now on land.

In Vietnam and all over Asia there are different floating houses which vary in size and traditional crafts. They range from thatched huts to painted house boats with high wooden hulls and colourful houses on floating platforms. Whole villages are floating on the water

Floating houses are common throughout the Mekong delta.
