After hotel pickup in Nha Trang, your day trip begins with the drive to a sacred site where the Po Nagar Cham Towers were built from the 7th and 12th centuries. A pilgrimage location for some Buddhists, the towers were named for a Cham princess who introduced her people to money-making weaving and wet rice cultivation.
Next, make the short drive to a nearby dock for your leisurely cruise on the Cai River. Aboard your small, private boat, pass by 200-hundred-year-old homes and sample tropical fruit. When you reach the end point, visit a restaurant on the riverbanks for lunch, and then head to a handicraft workshop to see how some locals make their livings. You'll also visit a market where daily goods like vegetables and fruit are sold.
Throughout your experience, note how the places you're visiting offer a glimpse into countryside life in Vietnam and how local residents spend their days. Your tour ends with the drive back to Nha Trang at the end of the afternoon for hotel drop-off.
