Basket boat is new to me and the experience was memorable. There's also opportunity to fish for tiny crabs. Organiser had been responsive and provided great services and rates. Worth a try!

Instead of booking via tour operator, after getting some info searching internet, we decided to book directly with Coconut Ring Tour. Rates about Usd5 per person. Owner also assisted to arrange 2 ways pickup with a cheaper rate than grab taxi. The boat ride is pleasant and they offer to take photos for us too. Except for the entertainment show with loud music, which seems to cater for Korean Tourists. Highly recommended

This is a bit of a tourist classic in Hoi An. We wanted to get out on the river. We took a taxi, it’s a little outside of town and looked too far for bikes, and we’d be cycling in the midday heat. The lady who was steering our coracle / basket boat had very little English. We went out through the coconut plants, and could hear what sounded like a disco - which felt at odds with the setting. I was personally utterly distracted by the plastic waste everywhere. It’s all over Hoi An, sewing it in the river really brought it home. In the main river we saw a traditional fishing boat doing a net throwing demo. We then went over to the ‘disco’ - where a young man was spinning his basket boat like a whirlitzer to the time of ‘gangam style’. A tad incongruous, but undeniably skilful. We were taken to a spot to get off and take photos, and then caught a crab from a line, which we put back. On the way back, the lady in our boat made us little flowers and a crown from coconut leaves. Hats and life jackets were provided. All in all, a good trip, ruined for me by the pollution.

Took wife and 13yr old on coconut tour. Beware cabs and others will be looking for commissions so price can be outrageous when you first arrive. We enjoyed the change of scene, caught a crab or two and had a few giggles watching the dancing and amazing skills of the coconut fisherman. Wife and son enjoyed the grasshoppers and other things made on the spot out of the reeds.
