Rowing a coracle through the Bay Mau nipa palm forest and seeing artwork at the My Son Sanctuary are just two of the numerous things to do in and around Hoi An, which are highlighted here by our Senior Leader. Check out the rest of the article to learn about the other things we recommend.
Have fun at the Tam Tien Fish Market!
Over the last 15 years, a fish market on the Tam Tien shore in Nui Thanh District, about 15 kilometers from Tam Ky Town, has served as the primary seafood distribution hub for Quang Nam and the surrounding areas.
Travelers visiting the market between 4 and 6 in the morning can witness hundreds of boats bringing in their catch of the day of fish, shrimp, squid, and crab.
Traveling south from Hoi An will take you to a bustling market that sees the most action between the hours of 4 and 7 in the morning.
However, you may visit between April and September, just in time for the monsoons.
Collecting coracles in the nipa palm jungle of Bay Mau
The Bay Mau nipa palm grove covers 10 acres and is located 3 kilometers from Hoi An’s historic district in Cam Thanh Commune.
Rowing a circular bamboo boat through the forest is a favorite sport amongst international tourists in recent years.
Tourists may take a boat ride for around VND200,000 (US$8.75) and see crab fishermen and the fishermen’s dance in their coracles. You may spend 45 minutes exploring the woodland on a self-guided trip.
Take a tour to the vegetable community of Tra Que.
More over 400 years old, the village of Tra Que is now protected as part of the country’s intangible cultural heritage. The town of Cam Ha Commune, located just three kilometers from Hoi An, is well-known for the organic vegetables and herbs farmed there by its two hundred residents.
In addition to enjoying the local cuisine, tourists may get a taste of the country life by trying their hand at farming.
Explore Cam Phu village’s artisanal traditions.
Located about 15 kilometers outside of Hoi An, the village of Cam Phu in Dien Phong Commune, Dien Ban Town, is renowned for its traditional woodcarving, silkweaving, and silkworm-rearing.
Garden houses, the village communal house, and the Hai Da monument can all be seen by tourists. Additionally, the Thu Bon River, where skilled fishers can be seen and visitors may sample regional cuisine, is also a popular attraction.
