The 46-year old Nguyen Van Cuong is living with his family on a self-made cabin on a raft offshore Ha Long Bay in Northern Vietnam. For him life on the water is pretty normal – since generations his family sleeps, cooks and works here. But the idyll is deceptive. The government is planning to relocate the swimming village ashore. Cuong is undecided. He is heading towards an uncertain future – ashore or offshore.
