Basket Boat Tour

If you have visited the coastal areas of central Viet Nam you might not want to skip the Hoi An ancient town which is one of the most popular destinations for travelers. The little town is just the perfect candidate of what Vietnam tourism ministry is aiming to show to the world and in that town there is one thing that should never be missed: “Thung Chai”. The “Thung chai”, or “basket boat”. Behind its name there is a whole story why Vietnamese has invented it.

In the past, when the French arrived in Vietnam and began laying taxes on the ownership of boats. Most of the poor Vietnamese fishermen who could not afford to pay the taxes as well as no other choice, so they came up with a new type of boat: the “Thung Chai”. The basket boat is made of bamboo with the shape of baskets. Therefore, it could not be counted as a boat. Fortunately, their ideas seem to work during that time. And ever since then these domed vessels have been a feature of the landscape of central Vietnam. Nowadays, as the development of our life, we want something special that could give tourist how Vietnamese culture are so that we bring up the basket boat tour to make you have the very Vietnamese experience.
