Tour Description:

Your evening tour begins as soon as your guide picks you up from your hotel. You will depart promptly at 4 P.M. and head straight to the port. Hop on a riverboat and sail along the Thu Bon river to the river mouth where it meets the Cua Dai Sea. Cruise to the serene Cua Dai estuary and marvel at the picturesque view of natural landscapes and lush greenery. Catch the special moment of the day as the sun slowly sinks on the horizon and the golden sky turns to night. This is the perfect moment to capture the beautiful pictures from your boat - enjoy the magical beauty of the sunset alongside the natural and well-preserved water coconut palm paradise surrounding the river delta. Along the way, you will see the water coconut jungle and local resident’s house on the two banks of the Thu Bon river. Enjoy the serenity of the evening by the banks as you spot some small canal routes cut in the middle of the coconut forest meandering down the waterway. Thu Bon River is known as one of the most strategically and culturally significant waterways in Vietnam and it plays an important role in the geography, culture and history of Hoi An. It is not just the main stage for many festivals and events held in Hoi An, it is also the chief source of livelihood for many residents of the town.

This dusk time cruise tour enables you to witness two special daily rituals: the passing parade of the local fishing fleet setting out to sea and the paddling of the local bamboo basket boat. Once you are transferred onto a traditional bamboo basket boat and join the evening fishermen along the coast, try your hand at rowing the unique vessel and help the local fishermen and on their fishing by casting the round net and engaging in net fishing. Paddle the riverboat in time to watch the city of Hoi An from the sea, enjoy a cool can of beer or soft drink and row your boat back to the port. At the port, the tour ends and you will return to your hotel to conclude the tour.
