Things to Do | Show and Tour Bookings

You’re never too far from the water in Hoi An, be it the river, ocean or the occasional tropical downpour. There are countless options for relaxing river tours of all lengths, from brief half-hour jaunts to sunset boat rides with fine dining included. For a more rustic trip you can experience life in a basket boat made from bamboo and even pilot a vessel through a palm-tree lined river.

Further options include guided kayaking, stand-up paddle-boarding and long-tail boats. Some tours will include a mix of cycling and food as well as time on the water – a veritable biathlon indeed.

And then there’s the Cham Islands – a diving and snorkeling wonderland during the hotter months. Just jump on the ferry or take an organized tour with Sea Trek or Hoi An Diving Centre.

Finally, for those who just want to do their own thing at one of Hoi An’s beaches, we have you covered. In Hoi An you can enjoy a resort-style experience for the price of a bottle of water! See Hoi An Beaches.
