Long-tail Boat Sunset Cruise


We will pick you up from your hotel in Hoi An and transport you to our office in the Cam Thanh Village for your Long-tail Boat Sunset Cruise. From the pier we will get on get on a traditional wooden long-tail boat and begin our wonderful trip on the Thu Bon River to the Hoi An Old Town.  You can choose to either paddle, or just sit in the boat and enjoy the beauty of the river. You will get a unique view of life on and around the river. Witness our community at play – farmers planting vegetables and fishermen casting their tradition nets, as well as immersing yourself in nature and serenity of river life.

The long-tail boat, known as đua thuyền in Vietnamese language, is a watercraft designed to transport passengers on the river as well as being used as a fishing vessel. Today long-tail boats are becoming obsolete as they are being replaced by speedboats which are faster and can carry more passengers. Here at Hoi An Kayak tours we are committed to keeping the tradition of the long-tail boats alive by using it as our preferred mode of transport for our river cruise tours.

Catch the reflection on the water at that magical hour the sun goes down as we approach the lantern town. Experience the sights of Hoi An and the Old Town from a unique water level perspective. 

You will be dropped off at the old town pier.
