Listen to the sounds of this famous engine as your whir away on the start of your journey. Your first stop is a coffee shop run by the local people of a small village.  The village is famous for its Nypa Fruticans (Coconut Palms): a beautiful palm tree that is fundamental to life in Hoi An.  Enjoy a traditional Vietnamese coffee while your escort provides detailed information about the tour and the village and the Coconut Palms.

15:00:While we enjoy coffee, we learn about the Coconut Palms and their myriad of uses in Hoi An, from food right through to housing construction!  Once ravaged by war, these waterways are now tranquil and serene and play a vital role in the Hoi An economy.    The local fishermen and women row the coracle boats through the small canal systems.  The scenery is stunning and always changing before your eyes.  Feel the cool breeze as it comes off the water and enjoy the local bird and other wild life going about their routine on the river.
