The Basket Boat locally named the “Thung Chai”, originated from Vietnam and is considered very valuable by the owners. It is made of bamboo and is mainly used by fishermen in Central Vietnam. Most fishermen who are working in the ocean or river really need to use it for their livelihood because of its convenience. Because of its unique and little known to many tourists. In this special tour, The Hoi An Village Experience would like to bring valued guests to a peaceful, quiet, and picturesque fishing village named Cam Thanh which is about 5 kilometers from Hoi An ancient town.
Come to us and you will meet lots of local warm-hearted people who will show you and teach you how to use the unique Basket boat with their whole hearts and enjoy an unforgettable meal of your lifetime.
