Thanh Nam Fishing Village

Fishing Village Thanh Nam is shaped by the Thu Bon River. Fishermen have come here since time immemorial to cast their nets and catch prawns, crab and fish at the place we now call “Con Chai” (Fishing Dune). Go to the enchanting Thanh Nam Fishing Village, stay and work with the accommodating local people and learn how to catch fish in this traditional fishing area.

One-day programme

9 am: Our local guide will meet you at Hoi An Travel (6 Tran Hung Dao Street) and you will ride by bicycle to Thanh Nam fishing village. Here you will receive a brief introduction to the history of the village and a tour of the display room with its traditional fishing tools such as: basket, net, wooden boat and other original Vietnamese utensils.

After that, we will take you in a boat with some local fisherman to learn how to cast a net and hopefully catch some fish.

After bidding farewell to the local fisherman, continue to Dai Chiem estuary to visit the peaceful waterways with their many boats and wharf.

You will have lunch at a local restaurant and return to Hoi An where our programme finishes at 3pm.
