Full description
Explore the wonderful Hoi An river culture and daily life while you immerse yourself into the food culture of Hoi An. Sharing a family meal is the foundation of Vietnamese culture - the real treasure in Vietnamese food is not the combination of dishes, it is about sharing. Communal serving platters are prepared for everyone to enjoy and the group sits around the table to share the meal, where it is polite and respectful to place food in each other’s bowls - younger to elders and hosts to guests.

Be picked up by jeep from your hotel in Hoi An at 10:30 to depart for your 3.5-hour lunch cruise to savor a traditional shared meal on a chic boat, a traditional Vietnamese fishing vessel that has been refurbished to the highest standards and designed specifically for cooking and dining on-board. Vietnamese food is considered one of the healthiest in the world, using fresh ingredients that are low in fat. Enjoy the balanced combination of sweet, savory, crunchy and smooth textures in each dish. 

Relax on-board and experience the romance of the river, watch the local people go about their daily lives in Tra Nhieu village and explore the river coconut forest. After discovering the stunning river and its culture, sit down to taste the freshly made dishes, accompanied by local wines and to be enjoyed in an unhurried and relaxed manner. Upon your arrival back in Hoi An, the jeep will be waiting to return you back to your hotel.
