Coconut Palm Village: Basket Boat Tour

Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from $149 USD / Adult
Try your hand at one of Central Vietnam's most important traditions, piloting a traditional round Basket Boat. You'll journey up river to the Coconut Palm Village for an immersive look at this time-honored mode of transportation, used by local fisherman to net the day's catch. Crafted from woven split bamboo treated with a waterproof layer of tar or varnish, steering these little round wonders is no easy task. So, you'll start out with a quick lesson before setting out into the river on your own. Don't be surprised if you find yourself spinning in circles despite your best efforts. Rest assured, you won't be alone and the confounding nature of these little beauties is all part of the fun. Along with a lot of laughs, you'll also enjoy a wonderfully authentic look at local life on the river before bidding new friends farewell and heading back to Da Nang.
  • Soak up the scenery as you ride a traditional wooden up the Coconut Palm Canal.
  • Reach the local village and go ashore to learn about the importance of Basket Boats in daily life.
  • Hop in and pilot one yourself and see if you don't find yourself going around in circles.
