Your morning tour begins with a 5am pickup from your central Hoi An hotel and a short transfer to the port by air-conditioned minivan. After boarding your riverboat, set sail along the Thu Bon River and cruise to the mouth of the river where it meets the Cua Dai Sea.

On arrival, witness the daily spectacle of the arrival of the fishermen, who return to shore after a long night of fishing with their boats laden with fish, crabs, shrimps, and shellfish from the Cua Dai Sea. Help the fishermen unload their catch, then follow them to the local fish market to soak up the atmosphere of the lively daily market. 

After visiting the market, take the opportunity to try rowing one of the traditional bamboo basket boats, used by local fishermen, and enjoy magnificent views as the sun rises over the coast. Back on the main boat, tuck into a traditional fisherman’s breakfast on-board as you cruise back to Hoi An.

Arrive back at the port around 7am, where a driver will be waiting to take you back to your hotel.

We had booked for a Sunday morning tour 28 May, but on the night before, someone from the local tour agency called my mobile to inform that they don't expect good weather in the morning, and asked if we could change it to Monday morning instead. We accepted the change as we were going to stay in Hoi An for 3N. The agent picked up at 4.45 am sharp, as arranged. It was a short drive to the boat. That morning was abit cloudy so we couldn't see the sunrise. Along the way, we saw several fishing boats, and many large fishing nets we were given a chance to pull in one of these nets later. At the fishing village, it was quite a sight seeing the ladies sort their fishes out for sale. Our tour guide bought prawns and squids which was later cooked for our breakfast. We also saw a lady cutting fresh rice noodles into strips, and our guide bought some for breakfast too. Then we took a short walk to the factory making fish sauce before returning to the boat. The boat then went towards a small island, but it stopped for a while for one of the boatmen to lower the basket boat into the water and demonstrate how to paddle the basket boat. We then got into the basket boat and given the paddle to try it. The boatman also showed off his skill in manouevering the basket boat but it got me giddy, and I yelled 'Stop' to which the boatman did. We rowed towards the island where we were given a chance to pull in one of those large fishing net to haul up the catch. Then it was back onto the boat where the boat Captain had cooked us a deliciously fresh breakfast with the items bought from the fishing village. Then we headed back and was sent back to the hotel. Even though we didn't see the sunrise, it was certainly worth waking up early for it. Personally, I chose a sunrise tour versus a sunset tour, as there is a lot of activity in the fishing village in the morning. Had a very good time. Highly recommended.
