2.5-hour Sunset River Cruise and Basket Boat Rowing in Hoi An

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    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 most fun tour we did in Vietnam. The guides were so much fun but also gave you time to relax and enjoy the sunset. You have to do this tour and see the sunset in Vietnam. The basket rowing was great fun but I personally really enjoyed the fishing. I would definitely

    The sunset river cruise was definitely one of the best short trips I have done in Vietnam. The staff and crew spoke excellent English and were very knowledgable about the local fishing industry and history. They were punctual and even ran the tour for just 1 person. Thoroughly
