A Couple in coastal village 

The Central Coast is sunny and windy, where many fishermen live. However, the life here has changed a lot because young people in coastal villages have no longer chosen maritime jobs to start a career.

Mr. Huynh Van Tam and his wife, Ms. Phan Thi No, are one of the typical representatives of those who stick to this career. They are 50 years old this year. They have 3 children together but all 3 live and work in big cities instead of choosing a maritime job to succeed their father’s business.

The below photo report of Mr. Trung Phan, tells about the simple life and the difficult livelihood of Mr. Tam and Ms. No in the sunny and windy coastal area of Hoa Duan - Phu Thuan - Phu Vang.
