Afterwards we return for a wholesome breakfast before cruising back to Halong City. En route the junk weaves through strange-shaped rock formations that invite comparisons from fighting cocks to mystical dragons!

The village is famous for producing the best pottery in Vietnam and art produced here is shipped all over the world. We'll walk down the narrow roads to the family workshop where we have a chance to meet the reputed artist Le Minh Ngoc, who received many honorable awards for his works and see the art he produces in unfinished stages and the final products.
