MUI NE'S FISHING VILLAGE

Every early morning,  Mui Ne's fishing harbor   becomes busy of the fishermen's catch of the day. 

 
 
The said harbor is popularly known as the fishing village. This is where most if not all of the fishing boats are moored. Do take note that the village changes location depending on what season. 
 
A visit to the fishing village is a great way to see and observe how the locals do  on their day to day affairs.  Witness how they transfer their catch from the colorful bigger boats to the shore  using  the smaller basket boats. It was my first time to actually see a round basket boats.   Notice too  that the  women still wears their traditional cone shape hats. 
 
 
 
 
 
Once  unloaded , they would segregate the fishes accordingly and have it ready for delivery.  I observed that they don't only catch fishes but also shellfishes. Some of the discarded shells and clams were scattered all over the place. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The  place becomes a real market every morning complete with makeshift stalls selling drinks and  ready to eat foods. It also serves as a fish  drying area.

  To see it for yourself, you must be up very early. Sometimes transactions are all done at just  7:30 in the morning.
