The people in the village float from house to house on boats. There is a fish and seafood restaurant in the village that is really good. Nearby there is also a nice market, where fresh and dried fish and seafood are sold.
The people of the village, from the Tanka tribe, are used to living on boats. When the houses began being built about 300 years ago, they wanted to remain near the water. This is what led the tribe to build houses on the logs on the water. Some houses are large and have two floors, while others are small and delicate. The reason for this is a fire back in 2000, that burned some of the houses, and this led locals to build smaller houses afterward.
Work, life, family - The crowded houses here symbolize the center of life for the local residents. Everything is done here, while the house itself is used for living, and also the processing and storage of marine produce. The village residents live, eat, cook, laugh and talk in front of the tourists walking by them in the houses. Many times they peak through the doors and onto the balconies that overlook the streets to see the tourists. Sometimes, seafood stands have been assembled and sold merchandise brought in from fishermen on the boats tied in front of the homes.
