The Nguyen family has lived on and off the water for generations in the midst of breathtaking natural scenery. Now they are threatened with forced resettlement. The 46-year old Nguyen Van Cuong and his family live on a self-made cabin built on a raft offshore in Northern Vietnam's Ha Long Bay. For him life on the water is pretty normal - his family has slept, cooked, and worked here for generations. The Vietnamese Ha Long Bay in northern Vietnam became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994 and welcomes millions of tourists from all over the world every year.
