Pick up: Your Hotel
Start at 4 : 00 pm – Return around 7 : 30 pm.
Come join us to explore the glittering Thu Bon River as afternoon stretches toward evening and watch the sunset from your uninterrupted vantage point on the water. Here you will cruise the tranquil, peaceful Thu Bon River in a private wooden boat, taking you on a 3-hour relaxing cruise to stop and see how timber boats are hand hewn from local timber then assembled with
wooden dowels the traditional way.
English descriptions of the complete process are explained to you, and then you can roam the island to see how local handcrafts and works of art are assembled from “Mother of pearl”. After boarding our boat again, we will pass many fishing
villages, showing you the traditional “Drop net fishing technique of Vietnam”. Then travel to the mangroves, where you will marvel at a coconut tree groves, whilst paddling around in a traditional bamboo weaved basket boat, then back to our boat to drink in the sunset (weather permitting, as sometimes it is cloudy) and eat a delicious BBQ cooked on the boat for you
whist relaxing and having a drink as we voyage back to Hoi An.
When we return, we will light traditional floating candles to sail down the Thu Bon River with a Buddhist prayer. After completion of floating candles down the river, the tour ends, so you have plenty of time to relax and wander around Ancient Town at night, taking in the sights & sounds, not forget the wonderful local restaurants.
We need minimum 3 guests to run that tour.
