Sunset Boat Cruise on the Thu Bon River
Enjoy a leisurely sunset boat cruise on the Thu Bon River, the perfect way to end a busy day exploring Hoi An.
At four in the afternoon, board a motorized boat in Hoi An town centre, and begin cruising along the Thu Bon River. As the boat travels north, you will pass small estuaries lined with leafy palms and peppered with small houses.
Sit back and watch daily life on the river unfold, with farmers working the fields, kids playing after school and local community members conducting daily jobs. You will also pass Hoi An's fishermen, with the opportunity to get a better look as you paddle closer a small bamboo vessel known as a thung chai.
The cruise will draw to a close as the sun sets over the river, before cruising back the shore for the evening. Please note, this is a group activity, so the boat will be shared.
