The Thu Bon River is one of the most prominent rivers in Hoi An and can be witnessed in all her glory as she curves and swerves to weave her magical way of delight across and around the landscapes of Hoi An. A boat trip on the river will certainly delight you and will add the element of that extra thrill as you stay at a Hoi An spa resort such as Anantara Hoi An Resort.
When visiting Hoi An, opportunities to find indulgence are certainly aplenty. The Thu Bon River only adds to the charms of the land as the boat trips that the locals are in the habit of providing to the tourists are indeed holding massive popularity. You can opt for a tourist boat to navigate the age old watery pathways of the river in luxury and style or choose to cast your lot with the friendly locals and climb aboard their sampans and take a journey to remember. The locals are ever friendly and the ladies, who usually operate the boats will take quite an effort to ensure you are very well entertained. The best time to take a trip down river is generally in the late hours of sunset, when the world and all its splendour will be bathed in glorious gold. The perfect time for photographers to take out their cameras is also found within these few hours. The romantic souls aboard will also find bliss untold in the beauty of the vista and the loveliness of the hour, and happily create a memory that will be cherished for a lifetime.
The Thu Bon River has assisted life since centuries past. The dazzling tourist attraction that we see today back then was a simple source of life itself. It has nurtured and sustained life of the Champa culture back in 700. It still continues to flow, as the best friend of the men of the land, gurgling and rippling as with life, adding color and essence to the tradition and culture of the land that changes not with the fickle breeze of time.
