If you are looking for a calmer, gentler, more traditional Vietnam, you might consider exploring it by boat. Needless to say, a boat trip is perfect for re-connecting with nature, family, and yourself.Back to the time when the pace of life was slower and flights weren’t an option, people traveled by boat when they wanted to get away. Traveling by boat is one of the most relaxing and fascinating (and romantic, too) ways to see the world.
Vietnam has vast and scenic inland and coastal waterways, with a dense network of rivers, lakes and canals, many with potential to be experienced by boat. Until now, there are many places you couldn’t get to unless you went by boat. For many riverside or seaside towns in Vietnam, boat rides are a natural attraction, and a great way to get a view of life on, in, or near the water. Vietnam is an evolving country of contrasts – a dizzy, see thing mixture of old and new, opulence and poverty, pagodas and churches, markets and shopping malls. If you are looking for a calmer, gentler, more traditional Vietnam, you might consider leaving the frenzied streets altogether and exploring it by boat. Here are a few options to suit travel tastes ranging from luxury treat to wilderness adventure.
