Sunset Boat Cruise on The Thu Bon River - Half Day

Today’s tour will begin at 16:00. After a day of shopping and sightseeing in Hoi An, board a motorized boat for a relaxing Hoi An river cruise along the Thu Bon. Cast off from the town centre and watch the UNESCO-Heritage trading houses fade from view. The boat will make its way north, entering smaller estuaries surrounded by leafy palm trees and dotted with quaint houses. Witness scenes of life on the river as local farmers return from the fields laden with vegetables, school kids frolic on the riverbanks and more.

Pass by Hoi An’s fishermen, watching as they gracefully cast their massive nets for the evening’s fresh catch. For a closer look, climb into a small bamboo vessel known as a thung chai and paddle along the calm waters.

The Hoi An river cruise comes to a close in the last light of day. Watch the sky turn brilliant shades of purple and orange as the sun sets over the river, then return to shore for the evening.
