River cruise, Hoi An

Jun 12, 2020, 10:01 AM

"The riverside​ remains the lifeblood to this town ​as all the streets in the Old Town run to the river’s edge. The riverside is the main point where locals and tourists gather together during the daylight. 

"The view is breathtaking and is the perfect place to relax and have some nice seafood and a friendly conversation with the locals by sipping one of the most intensely sweet coffees in Asia. S​treet vendors with their baskets and layers of paper underneath the vegetables are settled in specific locations further away from the markets and at the river edge to sell their products, which normally include a ready-made broth and mini kitchen on a pole on their shoulders. 

"At night, easy-going vendors offer traditional boat cruises to admire the charming lanterns creating a glowing night. You can either buy a colourful lantern to release on the river or​ immerse yourself on a serene boat ride enjoying the​ ​bright full moon."
