The rivers and waterways around Hoi An were not only instrumental during its history
as a famed port city, but they are also vital to the villagers who depend on fishing for
their livelihood. Depart for a local fishing village and spend some time learning about
the fishermen’s simple yet rewarding way of life in the area. Board a local riverboat
and start cruising down the Cua Dai River with a stop along the shore and try your
hand at casting the Vietnamese fishing nets, an age-old technique still used today.
The fluid motion looks easier than it is, but the friendly fishermen will offer you their
guidance based on years of experience. Learn the art of paddling the unique
Vietnamese round basket boats and travel through the tranquil coconut-palm flanked
waterways while hearing about how the area was a hotbed of activity during the
