It's quite far to ride bicycle from Hoi An Ancient town to this area (45-ish minutes). So it's better just to take a taxi or moped in my opinion. It's very interesting to ride the basket boat through the coconut forest. But the disco music...More

We had the Coconut Forest boat tour as part of our Hoi An day tour and we had loads of fun.The basket boat ride is a slow steady ride along the calm waters . We were treated to the boat balancing show as well.

Was a fun trip for the family. The kids love it so much they wanted another basket boat ride. The ladies who took us for the ride are very creative in making wearable art pieces from leaves. Awesome experience.

Instead of joining tours which are charging way to much, you can just grab a cab where pretty much every household living there provide the one hour coconut tour. Depend on your bargaining skills each boat (fits two person) goes at about 200,000-300,000VDN per boat....More
