Take a boat trip along the Thu Bon River, to escape the commercialism of the town and to regain a sense of "normal" life. Just a few minutes from the "tourist" town, you will find yourself among normal people, in rural Vietnam... Very refreshing.

Boat can be rented at the town's harbour along the river, you won't even nneed to look for one, someone will look for you. A circular trip of 90 minutes along the river and to its islands will cost about 5 dollars per boat.

On the trip you'll be able to see how "river" people live, their houses and their fishing divices. People will smile and wave at you, for once not because they want to sell you something, but just because they want to say hello to you.

Address: Hoi An old town
Directions: By the river harbour
