Long-tail Boat Cruise – A Taste of Culture


Your English speaking guide will pick you up at your hotel in Hoi An and transport you to our local pier where you will begin your long-tail boat cruise. We will get on a special traditional wooden long-tail boat, known as đua thuyền in Vietnamese language, and begin our a wonderful trip on the Thu Bon River to Cam Thanh Village. You can choose to either paddle or just sit and enjoy the beauty of the river with small islets, farmers planting vegetables and fishermen casting their traditional nets. Immerse yourself in the serenity and beauty of life on the river.

We will visit a local family of bamboo craftsmen. The bamboo family home is really something special to see and you will see a seemingly endless range of products crafted from bamboo. Baskets, chairs, tables, telephones – and even bamboo bicycles can be seen! Get a glimpse into the life of the locals as they welcome you to their home. Enjoy and share a home cooked dinner and local delicacies with the family – a unique way to experience local culture and get to know the people. You will be given a small bamboo gift as a keepsake of your wondrous long-tail boat cruise trip.

Return trip to your hotel is included.
