Anantara Hoi An Resort Offers Daily Cruises

Situated along Vietnam’s central coast, Anantara Hoi An Resort has launched a new picturesque cruise on Hoi An’s beautiful Thu Bon River, opening up one of Asia’s most storied waterways in a whole new way.

Departing from the French colonial-inspired Anantara Hoi An Resort, the daily one-hour,five-kilometre cruise sets off downstream under the Cam Nam Bridge, skirts the fabled Ancient Town and its markets, and then proceeds upstream along Cam Kim Island and Kim Bong carpentry village. The boat turns at Cam Nam Island and moves downstream again past the Thanh Nam fishing village, wrapping up at Anantara’s riverside dock.

Anantara’s cruising vessel is a quaint, lantern-decorated boat, fashioned by talented local carpenters at Kim Bong village. Like Hoi An itself, its design draws inspiration from its varied historical traditions, including techniques practiced by the Cham, Chinese, Vietnamese, Japanese and Europeans.
