To Bac Ninh and Phu Yen Episode 13Pirate archipelago I'm speechless.
In western region, in Ha Tien, Kien Giang, just an hour drive and then you feel like you are at an island which is very unique, special.
Like a Philippine or Indonesian Islan.
It's so amazing.
Its name is not so nice, right? When I first heard that name, I though it was a joke.
Or something else.
But later, I found out around few hundred years ago, there were pirates there.
Merchant ships from Japan or China or other countries would be stolen.
The rumor says there is a big treasure out there.
People go there to look for treasure but they find nothing.
Let's put it aside.
Pirate archipelago is worth to pay a visit.
Why? At this angle, other side looks like a city in Netherlands.
So beautiful right? But actually, I'm at a port in Ha Tien city.
Today, we will go on a boat to Pirate archipelago.
It only takes 30-35 minutes to get there by speed-boat.
The ticket is around 100, 000 VND.
That's all it takes to get there and we will go back at noon by boat too.
Unluckily, we are not at peak season, there is not enough tourists to run this boat.
So today, we can't go to Pirate archipelago by this boat.
We have to go there by merchant boat.
Okay, this boat goes there too.
It takes around an hour.
And the ticket is haft price.
Only 50, 000 VND Then we'll be there and have some fun, some food.
Go around the island.
Get on a boat and wonder around those islands.
We'll on a merchant boat to go to Pirate archipelago.
The scene is amazing.
It's hard to believe this is Vietnam right? Don't you think Ha Tien, Kien Giang are so beautiful? Traveling, Food, we have everything.
This is wharf which leads us to the islands.
Pirate archipelago has 16 islands in total.
This is the biggest island.
There're around 2000 residents who live here.
They earn living by fishing or aquaculture or running tourism business for tourists when they come here.
They will take care of tourists or have motorbike, boat for lease to take tourists to further islands and fishing or diving.
Especially, there's a milestone here to prove this island belongs to Vietnam.
Today, we come here to know more about life here get to see the milestone and take a boat to go fishing in the sea as well as go diving to watch coral.
In front of us, there's a beautiful beach with white sand, so beautiful.
And this is the back side of biggest island in Pirate archipelago.
The front side is where the wharf is, we can see the land on that side.
This is back side.
There're some unspoiled beaches, so amazing.
You can see some islands out there.
They belongs to Cambodia.
They are so close that we think we can even swim there.
So this is a border where conflict happens every aggressively.
It have occurred a hundred years, not lately.
That's why there is a historical monument here.
In 1958, Vietnamese navy came here and made this milestone.
Vietnam Republic, Pirate archipelago.
confirmation, sea chart no.
Pirate archipelago includes following islands.
Keo Ngua, Kien vang, Tre Lon, Tre Nho.
It was written that: “Delegation with research and supervising mission came here on 26th July 1958 under instruction from Vietnam Navy.
They signed here too.
No more argument.
This island belongs to Vietnam.
No more argument.
Then, from here we can see Cambodian island out there or Sihanoukville far away.
It is a beach of Cambodia.
And we can also see a very large island out there which is Phu Quoc island, our amazing island.
When we come here, firstly, we need to visit this milestone which claims sovereignty over the island.
No more conflict.
Secondly, we will get to know more about life here.
Thirdly, we will enjoy the amazing nature.
Ok, let's go.
It's time to go fishing and catch a big fish out there.
You need a big boat to catch big fish right? We have a giant boat.
Here it is.
Gaint! A pirate woman row the boat.
I can row.
Are you sure? – Sure?- I live in Ca Mau.
This is just a small boat.
Like a taxi to take us to big boat there.
Just a dinghy.
She will take us to big boat there.
See? Let's go, catch some fish! Normally when talking about sea, we think of Vung Tau, which is very near Sai Gon or Phan Thiet, or Central Vietnam to enjoy beautiful landscape.
But I didn't expect that just 30 minutes drive from Kien Giang, Ha Tien there are such wonderful islands.
White sand, unspoiled islands.
It should be a tourist attraction.
There's nothing to complain.
The whole archipelago with many islands.
We can organize some activities at each island and create a tour which can last for 3 days.
Stay here and have fun.
Like go fishing, diving.
Really great! See? So beautiful.
What do we do now? We stop over there first.
For what? Chilli.
Chilli? To make chilli salt? Ok, he forgot to bring chilli, so stop here to take some.
I forgot chilli.
Then we will catch sea urchin.
Where do we go after that? Then we'll go diving to watch coral.
But the coral is quite ugly today.
Oh, it's okay.
After catching sea urchin, let's catch a big fish.
That's all for today? Okay.
Wear this and dive? That's right.
We can use any glasses? – Any glasses.
Thao is the captain of this ship.
Thao will company me to dive and catch some shell-fishes, ark clam, clams, sea urchin, fish to cook.
Enjoy the fresh dish.
Can you tell me how to dive and catch sea urchin or ark clam? You should wear this glass and dive you wear like this.
Leave the nose out.
Cover the nose too? Okay.
Take a deep breath before diving.
Breath in and it will stick to your face.
Breath to stick.
Then you dive.
When you are out of breath, you swim up and breath by mouth.
Can we just dive down there? How can you breath? Okay.
Some friends told me after washing it, we should spit on it to clean it again and prevent air bubbles.
– Is it right?- Yes.
– I was going to do that.
– Do you? Then go ahead.
Let's go diving.
You please should me the way.
To contain prizes.
Are you sure they are down there? I'm sure.

I'll follow you.
You follow me too.
This is not dirty or something.
trick to prevent glass from being foggy.
– I caught a few fishes already.
– Spit on it.
Spread out to prevent from being foggy.
What's in it? See? It's under the water.
This is the sea floor, it deeply grounded like this.
We can only see this.
I have to grab it and pull it up.
It's pen shell.
It weights 500-600 gram.
I never see such a big pen shell.
Interesting! We formerly ate it but didn't know how to catch it.
Extremely easy to catch.
It's so easy.
Dive into the sea and catch it.
But it's important that you come to Kien Giang, then come to Ha Tien and take an hour to go by boat to catch like that.
It can't be caught anywhere else.
So happy! Ok.
Let's board the boat.
This's just futile.
This's just a thing to play.
This is just a thing of amateurism.
And these are the stuff of professionals.
This is the result that they only dived for a while.
Full of a basin.
How to ear all.
It will be delicious to bake them up.
Please smash it out.
Smash behind it and remove the tail.
Let's do like this.
Remove the tail but it protrudes from the head.
Oh! Open it very easily.
Oh my God! This we can also eat but this's better.
It was delicious! It's usually in the middle.
– He can eat it raw.
– Although you want to eat it raw, you must add it with mustard.
It's very sweet.
This black one cannot be eaten, it's sand.
You can eat it raw like this.
This is edible.
We have a little hurry.
Weather like this is easier to scuba dive.
Everything can be done with Ms Mai.
Its shorrtness is not the kind of stiff.
It has a very crisp taste just like we eat this.
It doesn't get tough.
This is both crunchy and soft.
When we bite it, it'll melt and break.
It's extremely sweet.
It'll be sweet.
Bake it, it will be very fragrant.
Will it smell good if we baked it? What if we eat like this? That's all right.
– No problem? – Yes.
Oh my God! Oh no! You see! Outside layer People keep saying that it's not delicious.
Van Son thinks it's a lie.
This horn scallop is very delicious to eat.
Now I will find people and give them a try for everyone to see.
Let's eat it.
Turn the camera to this side.
Is it delicous? It's sweet and delicous.
Is it delicious? Yup.
Have you never tried raw food before? Never.
But you have to swallow one whole.
Now it is all a horn.
So cool! It is very difficult to eat one whole.
Now you can eat one whole.
If eating one whole, then mobilize forces from wife, children, family to eat.
Perhaps it is not over yet.
If we eat luxuriouy, take each horn.
After smashing the tail, we will separate the two gills.
That way it will poke its head out.
When we cut, cut this horn.
Cut off this.
Cut off this to release it.
It's really very tough.
Can you see it? Oh my God! Is it good? Put it here and grill it later.
This is the first time to do.
It's so good.
Throw this away.
Then slip in.
Cut it off.
You see? I'm cutting it.
Don't cut vertically.
Just put it like that and cut the horn.
People have proper rules.
Can you see it? You see.
You see it.
Cut it out.
You see it.
Today is so lucky because there is Ms.
Mai who makes it.
If you want to eat it, you must have two people.
This is too fat.
It is very difficult to catch this species in the sea.
We have to use the racket to catch them.
But where does this species come from? This one is in the stomach of horn scallop.
While in the sea, it opened two clam shells.
These species crawl across and they eat into the stomach.
After eating them into the stomach, the two shells close.
If you want to eat this one, you have to catch horn scallops.
When we catch the horn scallop, open it to see if this species is in the belly.
The horn scallop can eat it, so we also can eat it.
Horn scallops eat them, so they grow up like this.
People can eat, so I also can eat.
I'll try it.
There are many milk shrimps.
Oh my God.
They also jump.
Including both milk shrimps.
Thao, let's try one.
– Do you want to eat it?- Yes.
A tiny shrimp that two people eat it.
Dipping it into salt and lime chili will taste great.
Is it delicious? Eat raw like that, right? Eat raw like that.
Oh my God.
The fire is good.
The fire is good.
You can put it up.
Oh my God.
Peppers grow in the sea, you see.
He picked chili from the sea.
It's nice because chili is in the sea! Actually, Thao just swam ashore and asked for some peppers.
Use it to make chili salt.
We must use it to make chili salt.
How to eat without salt chili? He dives into the sea.
On the way, he hold this chilli in his mouth, and after catching horn scallop, He came on and said those were grown under the water.
To eat this, we have to close our armpit! So our armpit won't hurt from this tastiness.
Grilled one taste deliciously different! The meat is chewy! The last one is soft and smell! Gosh! No need salt and chilli! It's already salty! It's so good! Real good! Too good to be true! Oh my gosh!The smell is just wonderful after grilling! Eat, And close my armpit to get myself together cause the taste is so good.
It's true, it's really delicious! Flavor here not only comes from the scallop, Not only Cồi part.
But it's tasty when we're enjoying this scenary.
Also for the people's hospitality.
Specifically the boat's owner, also the chef.
And the workers.
Captain and other people.
All those factors created this taste! Nothing is tastier than this! For now!Later, we will try much tastier food than this! This is a fish i caught!It's a gift for you! Remember i caught this fish, okay! This fish called Mít.
I don't know why it is called Mít but people said so.
Maybe because it smell nice like jackfruit.
Smell really nice! It's nearly cooked.
Let peel its cover.
See! God! Everyone annoyed when other's eating tasty food, huh? It's sweet! Really sweet! The fibre is chewy though! Sweet! Also fresh! Small but quality! So good! This one is also good too! It's called sand caesio.
Sand caesio! – Sand caesio!- Yes! Small like this! Althought it's small, it is must tastier and greasier than the previous one! But this type only has a bigger size like you said, and there're no caesio bigger than that! Yes! Sand Caesio! It will also be good if we fry it! Fry it, but basically, this fish also has bone inside right? Yeah, it do have bone, but the flesh is really good! Okay! This one is small.
But its flesh's much tastier and greasier than the other one.
Greasier! Savoury! We don't even need spices! It's salty enough! So good! God! This is sea-chestnus.
Or we also call it sea urchin.
There are three names for this.
But we always call them woo-li.
It's the best to eat with sushi.
It's look so good, and it's alive! It's moving! See? After we cut its spine, We split it, And then we eat it raw.
Really good! Natural.
So refreshing! Let's go inside! Oke! Today, we did catch a lot! Now, let cut the spines.
Cut the spines and split them into two pieces.
Cut the spines, split them.
This fish is the best when it's grilled.
It still has spines.
Those spines are very dangerous! See? Watch it!It sting us! Are you happy? There're many people visiting Hải Tặc Islands.
That's why when we visit here, we occasionally see those kind of groups.
Now, they are from Long An Province.
There are people around the world visiting here, it's no joke! Let me through! This little grouper just shout at me.
I thought he's about 4-5 kg but he's not.
This grouper's so small, let him free then! This is one of the fishing vessels in Hai Tac Island.
The owner lives here.
They are cobia.
Especially bigeye trevally.
Actually we can catch some if we go fishing, but it will waste our time.
People bought fingerlings and raised them here.
Especially the fish are fed properly.
They are only fed small fish.
Except for being called farmed fish, they are only eat natural food.
Very delicious! Let's catch a bigeye trevally! You see that? Not this one? That one! Yes! You can't hold it! This is a bigeye trevally.
It weighs at least 2kg.
We rarely see bigeye trevally.
We must travel to this area.
To see them.
Especially the grilled bigeye trevally dish is very delicious.
Its meat tastes sweet and has nice fragrance.
We just went diving.
And we ate sea-chestnus.
Elongate cockle and horn scallop.
We ate a lot.
We also ate a fish called bigheaded carp.
With long body and taste so good.
Now, let's bring it back to the island.
Set a fire and grill them! Besides, we will eat them with oyster stew.
And sea-chestnus too.
Next to them, we have “Chôm Chôm”.
Grilled Chôm Chôm dish is very unique.
Let's go inside! I just enjoy so much that i lost my hat.
Now i'm on Tào bridge connect to Hòn Tre Vinh Island.
Hòn Tre Vinh Island is one of 16 Islands included in Hải Tặc Islands.
This island is uninhabited.
But this is developed for tourism.
Soon, i have contacted with my friends who are living here.
Got their permission to stay here and grill fish.
After, we will cook stew and eat.
While we were at this, let's visit.
A legendary ship of this Hải Tặc Islands.
Which is called “Black Sail”.
It's over there.
The fish is very big.
If we directly grill it on charcoal fire, The skin will be smell.
But the meat won't be cooked.
That's why we have to play dirty.
Get someone's help.
This is my assistant.
This is Terminalia catappa's leaves.
Later on, we wil put the fish on those leaves.
And lay this on the fire.
The fire will burn those leaves.
The fish' skin won't be smell.
But the meat will be cooked properly.
Their function is just like a frying pan, we will use this for now instead of other tool.
To block the fire.
And radiate a normal heat.
The fish will be slowly cooked and won't be burn.
Thanks to the Terminalia catappa's leaves.
Later, we will peel the skin after grilling.
After peeling, you will behold a white delicious flesh.
Very good guys! Let's find a grill.
We grill it both side.
About 15 minutes.
!5 minutes for grilling each sides.
The fish will be well-cooked.
But remember that depend on the fire, Usually for a normal fire, it will take 15 minutes to cook.
But i put the charcoal burner right into the direction of wind, The fire is very strong.
We have to watch the fire.
It will be burned a little, but it's okay.
People call this quick-cooking food.
And why though?It's because we just put the fish on the burners without thinking or preparing anything.
No need to marinade, salt, or pepper.
We don't need anything.
Later, after griliing, we will.
Eat it with pepper and salt or chilli pepper.
It will be wonderful! My leaves are burned! The fire is so strong! It's nearly cooked, But later let's cook it again, just to make sure.
It's so tasty! While we're waiting for 10 minutes, Let's go out and open “Chôm Chôm”.
And grill them.
They all look like stone! They look like this undersea.
Who know they are “Chôm Chôm”? Only diving experts can identify them.
One of them is Linh!Linh, come here! It's not easy to open this!Only professional expert do! – We will break it, right?- Yes! Break it into pieces.
How? Break on the edge, and it will open.
We play dirty right? Is it blood? Is it blood? It's not? – Its color does look like blood!- Just its cover! – Its cover?- Yes! Why we called them “Chôm Chôm”? Because its shape look like rambutan fruit! It is also look like a rock.
God! So beautiful! All of the spikes fell down.
See! Oh god! The flesh inside has ruby color! And this one too! Linh, those are near the shore right? God!It's hard like a rock.
Oh my god! Rock Oyster! This is rock oyster? This is rock oyster! We got a lot of them! Which one is Chôm Chôm? It's Chôm Chôm, right? Chôm Chôm! It's opened! This one was opened! Yeah, it does look like rambutan fruit! We call it Chôm Chôm.
It has spikes.
It will be bad if we step on them while walking.
Let's compare between them! When it's opened, it looks like this.
So beautiful! And its cover.
Have anyone here eaten it? It's my first time, really! First time! Never have tried them before! Only people living here have the chance to eat them.
We don't have much of this specie here, right? Yes! Right?I have never seen them outside! Yes! Right? This is rare to see! Rare? Only people living in this island ate them? This is promising delicious, right? Just by a look and i want to eat it raw! Can i eat it raw? Yes, you can! Really? _ Can i eat all of them?- You should eat the flesh.
Because the fat part is really fishy.
Kinda fishy? so grill is a better choice, right? Let's get ready! God! So beautiful! What is this? This is a gift from the sea! Get a pot for him! If we don't have those leaves, the fish will be burned! It's okay, let's just eat the body! This is Chôm Chôm! Those are its spikes.
Its flesh is so beautiful! We will grill them together!For instance, We will grill Chôm Chôm.
About rock oyster.
If we grill them, it do taste good too.
But it will taste better if we eat it raw! Rock oyster! I have tried other oyster before.
We have oyster from Atlantic Ocean, Arctic Ocean and Pacific Ocean.
We've never eaten this kind of rock oyster before.
This is its cover.
See? Let's eat! So delicious! Oh my god! No need any spicies.
Any of them.
We just washed them with sea water so it taste a little salty.
But it's greasy, sweet, fragrant.
Where can we find them? There is no second one! Flip over! This side is cooked! Grilled Chôm Chôm with green onion.
Now, let's cook stew! While we eating this, the stew will be done in no time! This is barely white porridge, let put Cồi inside.
Those are Cồi taken from horn scallop.
It's look so tasty just by looking! Dear everyone! Now is a holiest time in my life! Let's dig in! First, thank you Mr.
Hảo! For spending time catching those horn scallop and sea-chestnus.
And about Linh, he dived in the water and caught them.
Those are peculiar! Those are very hard to see so it took a long time to catch them.
It's Chôm Chôm, with spikes and stuff.
Especially this fish, now, let's try it first! Try it! Try it! Try it and see! We don't have to use spices! Yeah! Let's me see how it taste! So good! Oh my god! Who bred you? How can you be so yummy?

Better than purified water! No shit! This is of course much better than other water! Purifed water only for daily use, and this one for party! Eat well, drink beer! The beer is so good!And it's cold too! It's taste much better when refrigerated instead of adding ice.
Later, do it like me! Now, it's time to enjoy the grilled bigeye trevally.

We used no tube.
In the past, it was heard that there was a man who dived 7 or 8 meters deep.
Yes! That's right.
Diving so deep that the ear can not bear the pressure of the water.
I was heard that people usually drink fish sauce before diving.
Right? Tell everybody clearly.
In the deep water.
We just use this method when diving in the deep water.
Being limited about 8, 9 meters.
So now, enjoy the meal! Remember, this fish.

Honey! I'll live here, ok? The food is very good! In the past, When I was heard about pirate islands I don't like it anymore because I think it's 'pirate'.
Hate it! I hate it so much! Moreover, I don't think that is a real name.
People here just name for fun! How can they name it like that? But after traveling and experiencing here, And now.
I don't hate this place anymore! There is a variety of reasons.
First of all, The food is so delicious.
Secondly, The people here are so friendly.

People are so hospitable.
such as: Thao, Linh and everyone there.
They don't let me go.
Then they invite me to their home, bring rest of the food and make another tray of food.
But thanks to that, we could find that the people living on this island for several decades from birth to now, are so miserable.
meet extremely difficult circumstances.
Today I must come here, the pirate islands and have chance to enjoy the food here.
Especially, we will enjoy these natural seafoods.
Remember to come here to try them.
Thao's home The today's show.
The images, which you're watching.
80% thanks to Mr.
Why do I say that? He is .
the captain, the tour guide, and diver, who catch seafood for me to eat.
He also show me way to dive and catch Elongate Cockle.
where they live.
I learned many good things from him.
However, there are also many sad stories.
Thao, Giang and some brothers lived and grown up on this island.
Just now, there was a story I heard from Mr.
Thao that they were robbed, fell into the sea and drifted about 4 hours on seawater at night.
From 8 to 12p.
From 8 am to 12:15 am.
Do you remember exactly 12:15 am? Did you have a watch at that time? Yes.
Get on the boat and see it.
He was still awake to see the clock when he got on the boat.
What was that like? Can you tell me? What year was that? Mui Hon Bridge is the road to Ha Tien.
From this island 15 to 20 minutes to get there.
There are several pairs of boats.
There are several pairs of flying boats.
So it came out early.
So we ran away.
My four boats run side by side.
I saw them switch to those pairs, so I let them move to others boat.
They have guns in their hands.
They had just stepped out, smashed the shore, and pointed their guns at us.
As soon as they stepped out, they demolished.
Are they civilians? Including both civilians and their soldiers.
They have guns, right? They got to the controls of the boat and hit us.
They hit the hand and then the hand was swollen.
They kick us down in position to get off the boat.
After falling down there, they kicked us into the water.
Dropped into the water while the boat was still running.
On the boat, Mr.
Giang was beaten.
Are you there, Mr.
Giang? – Really?- Yes.
They told him to start the engine but he didn't.
So they hit him with strings.
He was hurt so he jumped.
Then I got back to the shore.
He recalled that when they told him to turn on the engine, he said I had to go to eat late at night.
Going to eat late at night so he don't know where to start the engine.
So they took everything on our boat.
They want to push our boats away but they can't.
Because their boats are small and our boats are big.
They were afraid our ship would catch them again, so we abandoned our boat.
They took everything on the boat and ran away.
Giang started the engine and put it to the shore.
And people ran out to find me.
We lighted the lights and they all lit up.
Then they droped it.
I could not pick up others lamps.
After a while, I did not understand why his boat also fell into the river.
That boat landed in this person's boat.
How mayny people on the boat? Mr.
Giang and who else? There're 4 people.
He fell into the river and your friend too.
I have instructions to take off your clothes and put it on the shore.
Please remove all clothing.
At that time, he was embarrassed, so he refused to do that.
I also had more instructions that when he waded in the water but he was exhausted.
Please wade slowly, don't need to rush.
So when he is exhausted, he can still hang on.
Everything should be done slowly.
He waded for a while, then took off his pants but refused to take off his underwear.
When the boat went out to find and turn on the radio.
But calling them, they didn't listen.
So I asked them to turn in one direction, I turned in another.
As long as I get the boat to the shore first, I'll back to find you.
And if you get to the boat to the shore first, come here and find me.
At that time, I got on the boat first.
It was 4 hours and 15 minutes.
I called the boat to find them with me.
I've found them and they're naked like me.
It's so lucky! For a short while, I've been listened they recall.
For a short while, I've been listened they recall, I imaged that It would be painful if he turned to find for the other person but couldn't see him.
And that boat thinks the same way you do.
both brothers got into the boat first.
Where are you then? At that time I'm on the boat.
At first I thought these two were beaten and dropped into the water.
They searched everywhere in the water.
And only this man was beaten.
We hid in the harbor.
We hid in that place.
They hit another man so much that he had to crawl away.
Then he met me.
They used 2-3 strings to beat and dived into the boat.
And they asked me.
They don't speak Vietnamese so I don't understand what they want to ask.
I didn't know to turn on the engine, I just went to eat late at night.
I went to eat late at night, so I didn't know about machines.
Then they didn't do anything.
They took the tools and got off the boat and took all the stuff on the boat from the machines, cups, vases, etc.
They took everything and carried over to their boat.
They want to push our boats away but they can't.
After a while they gave up.
They think these people must be hiding in the basement, not imagining that they have fallen into the water.
After a while they left.
Then we called Thao up.
Go ashore! They couldn't find the people in the basement so they left.
The other man did not hear clearly.
He said, “You said the other two guys fell into the water.
” I ran for a while and then said why you didn't say come back.
But it was strange that there was no turning back.
If I go back, this person will die.
So I went back on shore and told the news.
Inform the people here.
How long does it take to get to shore? About 15 minutes.
Is that all? About that time I can got here.
Get in here and tell everyone and everyone to run away.
Then run in to find a boat going from here to Mui Nai to move back and forth together.
I stood there for four hours.
After four hours to come out? What do you think when lying on the sea? Do you think you may have died? Not yet.
Trying how to swim? Yes.
Trying how to swim, not thinking that I'm going to die.
Everything was fine and we didn't think at all.
Only see boats out looking very crowded.
– You see?- Of course.
Giang ran in here for 15 minutes then I and Tien also went in.
The boat inside lights up everywhere searching so we don't think we're going to die.
Because there are so many boats, if you don't meet this boat, you will meet another boat.
With 4 hours and 15 minutes in the sea, With 4 hours and 15 minutes in the sea, you remained calm and waited for the boat to pick up? Yes.
How long do you think you can hold out? Can you hold out until morning? I don't know.
But at that time still very calm.
It was over 4 hours ago but still very calm.
Because you lived in the sea since childhood, right? – Uhm.
– Seeing the ocean is like seeing an otter, right? You are not afraid.
I'm not afraid.
A moment ago, I saw him diving in the sea.
He catches a lot of seafood like mussels, sea-urchins, etc.
There are also fishs.
It is good to catch fish with his hand! He dived into the sea and caught a lot of fish with his hands.
Let's eat together! Have you ever tried eating this sea-urchin while it's alive? Yes.
Add lemon to it.
Ever tried it without adding lemon? Never? It must add lemon? Wouldn't it become sour and lose its appetite when adding lemon? It's delicious to eat while it's still alive.
You see it! It's delicious! No need to add lemon.
Eating while it's still alive, no need to add lemon.
It's really good.
They are still alive.
Now try to eat it raw.
Let's try it.
Oh my God! Why not dare to eat raw sea-urchin? No.
Why? It's delicious when you eat it raw.
This is fresh seafood caught from the sea.
Why do not dare to eat? What's it? Because I've never eaten it raw before.
In the past, for the fish, I ate it all.
Do raw fish eat? Let me tell you.
In the past, at fishing and back to shore, full of basket, then dry it.
Dry it, then discard the body when it is finished drying.
Now it costs several hundred thousand but I don't eat it.
Not eating is not eating.
I have just tried one, let's just try one.
After you finish eating that one and try this one.
This's really good.
You catch it, you have to try it.
Let's try it.
– I just ate a whole but it was okay.
– Ok, but please slowly.
Not slowly! It is a new spoon.
I have to dip it here.
No need to dip.
It's doesn't matter.
No need to dip.
I ate a whole.
Try it and you'll love it immediately.
Wait for it to melt.
Wait for it to melt in your mouth.
What's up? What are you doing? Does it taste fatty? – It's fatty and delicious.
– It's really fatty.
It's doesn't matter! This is called being forced to eat.
He didn't volunteer to eat it.
It's really fatty! Does it taste good? If you add lemon, you will spoil it.
And now, Thao has eaten it, now it's Giang's time.
Giang, try it! Try it! No death, so no need to be afraid! Oh my God! Does it kill us? His face is strange.
Does it taste fatty? Haha.
He hasn't dared to speak for a short while.
He didn't dare to speak.
It's delicious! It's delicious, everyone! You see it.
Do you recognize that it's delicious? You see it.
I eat a whole.
Eating this animal, we have to eat like this.
It won't taste good if we bake it or add lemon.
We did not dare to eat.
People here fear the god chasing if eaten raw.
Let me tell you.
Let me tell you.
Japanese mostly eat raw.
Whatever animal they eat, they eat raw.
They also chew raw octopus and swallow.
Eat an alive whole.
In fact, All the animals in the ocean can eat it raw.
From fishs, clams, mussels, all can be eaten.
A moment ago, Mr.
Thao felt very shocked when he ate it raw.
Oh my God, women can also eat raw.
Thao, right? Try one more? Haha.
Which one? Today we are eating deliciously like this here.
This achievement is due to the hard work of these people.
They were born and raised here, they still have to suffer here.
Construction, clinging to the sea, clinging to the island, fishing, etc.
They have to suffer, endure being captured and robbed by Mien.
Even Giang was shot.
He was shot through the back to the shoulder.
So We come here to eat and play everything.
We have to remember these people like this.
So today is a day, the day Van Son came to Hai Tac Island to enjoy the fresh air and clean food along with hearing great stories.
On the occasion of time, I want to ask Mr.
Giang and Ms.
Mai for permission, and Ms.

Bring these images to introduce to Vietnamese and around the world.
For what? Let others know in Kien Giang province, there is an archipelago called Hai Tac island.
and there are people like this in here.

Let eat them.
