Inside Vietnam: Cambodia Laos

Sunset Thu Bon River cruise

The Thu Bon River in Hoi An once witnessed great trading fleets from across Asia. A more sedate pace is common today; ideal for an evening cruise!

Though the glory days of Hoi An as a trading port may be long gone, the Thu Bon River is still a crucial artery for local trade and transport. Getting out on the river at dusk is a lovely, relaxing way to end the day, as you watch the sun set between the water coconut palms that line the network of rivers and streams of the Thu Bon estuary.
