Begin with pickup at your Hue hotel, then travel to Thuan An Beach by car, a roughly 20 minute trip. Board a wooden boat to the Tam Giang Lagoon, then switch to a traditional sampan after 30 minutes on the water.
Go deeper in to the lagoon by sampan, which can navigate even the shallow parts of the tidal lagoon. Watch for fishermen who use handmade, conical traps to catch fish, beating the water with long, wooden poles, then pull up alongside their boats and try the traditional technique yourself.
You’ll see the sun set over mainland Vietnam as you continue across the lagoon—sunsets here are particularly scenic, as they illuminate the rolling terrain around Hue, which make the perfect backdrop for photography. After the sun goes down, head to shore, then meet a car for the return trip to your Hue hotel, where this tour concludes.
