Young photographer Nguyen Hoang Phi’s photos about sunrise at Long Hai fishing port in the southern province of Ba Ria-Vung Tau capture the everyday activities of fishing communities.
Phi said that being born in Long Hai District, he wanted to capture the life of local people. The photos were taken at Long Dien District’s Long Hai fishing port and Dat Do District’s Phuoc Hai Beach.
Long Hai is a coastal town in Long Dien District. Apart from tourism services and salt production, Long Hai is a major supplier of seafood for southeastern provinces.
Spending some time at Long Hai fishing port in the early morning, visitors can see its bustling atmosphere as fishermen and vendors gather to trade freshly caught fish. Fishing is a major source of revenue for Long Hai residents.
The fishing port which was set up a very long time ago is often more bustling between 13th and 15th of every lunar month as fishing boats return after going offshore.
The port opens very early and activities can finish by 8 am. After classifying fish for sales, many people carry ice to market to preserve the fish.
