Vietnamese build ornate temples, pagodas and Buddha statues in its slopes. The next stunner in the tour is Hoi An’s palm forest, the former hiding place of Vietcong communists during the American war. Travelers will discover it with a basket boat (coracle) and watch how to catch crabs and fishes by local traditional ways. Then, try delicious Mi Quang noodles at one of the best known eatery in town – Mi Quang Ong Hai (available if requested). For the rest of the day, the walking tour in Hoi An Ancient Town is the focus. It’s a well-preserved historical trade port that reached its apogee in international commerce from 15th to 19th centuries. This melting pot won the Unesco world heritage title in 1999 due to its intactness and unique culture. In the evening, uncountable lanterns are lit up, making it filled by colorful and fairy lights.

Basket Boat Ride - Hoi An Coconut Village
Near the estuary of Thu Bon River, Hoi An Coconut Forest is 200-years-old.During the Vietnam war, communists (Vietcong) made full use of its vastness, interlaced canals and inaccessibility by big boats, to build a hiding base. They used basket boats to move around like locals and now, travelers have a similar experience. During the ride, how people catch small crabs by the rob or fishes by the net, make accessories by palm leaf and the “dance” (boat spinning) absolutely can be expected. In 2009, the forest became a part of a Unesco world biosphere reserve.
