In addition, Vinh Thanh marks an impressive point about local people’s life here. You can see familiar pictures of fishing boats lying on the sandy shore and waiting for a new journey with fishers who speak Hue dialect entirely and have burnt skin with a deeply lined brow as their unstable livelihood, but they are always friendly, plain and hospitable. Optimistic smile and hope for offshore journeys full of fish never disappear on local people’s face. On sunny days, finishing lunches, about 1 am, fishermen who are too familiar with waves, wind of the sea check nets and prepare necessary facilities to start a new journey in the large sea where their companions are waiting for and promise to have ample fish, squids, crabs.
