  • Riverboat cruise and basket boat trip at sunset
  • Join local fishermen on the Thu Bon River
  • Sip beer and watch the sunset over the Cua Dai Sea

Start your tour with hotel pickup from Hoi An Ancient Town in the late afternoon. It’s a brief minivan transfer to the pier where you’ll board a riverboat for a sunset cruise.
Swap the vessel for a bamboo basket boat and have a chance to try your hand at rowing along the coast. Join in the evening’s activities including learning from local fishermen the techniques of round-net and cast-net fishing.
Back aboard the riverboat, journey to the mouth of the Thu Bon River where it meets the Cua Dai Sea. Savor the sunset while you refresh with a chilled beer or soft drink. Once you arrive back at the pier, a driver will return you to your hotel in Hoi An.

This was the highlight of our trip. The guide and crew were soon fantastic. I haven't laughed that much in a long time!

This was an unexpected, fun, laugh a minute tour. We did think we would have a sedate basket ride but the guys were great and very aware of whether we were enjoying the spinning and rocking on the baskets. We had a laugh a minute and our grandchildren at home were very impressed that we did this tour. The staff were friendly and helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our time, a highlight of our tour.
