Cormorant Fishing Show
Fishing with birds is an old tradition, since ancient times in Yangshuo, cormorants have been tamed and trained to catch and bring back fish to their owners.
When the evening is coming, the fishermen sail slowly on bamboo rafts with trained cormorant birds swimming around. Lanterns are light and suspend from the front of the bamboo rafts to draw fish, a piece of string is tied around the birds throat so the bird can't swallow. So the cormorant swims and catches fish and stores them in their mouth. One by one the fisherman hooks the bird on a stick, and empties the mouth filled with fish and then puts the bird back in the water to continue the fishing technique!
