"If you're travelling with your partner and you're looking for a romantic way to spend an evening, then this cruise down Thu Bon River, one of the most stunning waterways of Vietnam, will be perfect for you. Imagine gliding quietly through the water, with candles floating all around you, lighting your way down the river. There’s music playing in the background, you've got a glass of wine in your hand, and the sounds of the Hoi An night are slowly coming to life all around you. Sounds almost too good to be true, doesn't it?
In the Vietnamese culture, candlelight is spiritually significant. It’s purported to accompany you through life, guide your prayers to the Gods, give you good luck for safe journeys, great fishing, substantial crops and overall good health and happiness. Once you're surrounded by the beautiful flickering lights, it’s the perfect moment to make wishes together on the candles, then watch them float away downstream.
Dinner is served by your own personal crew, and the menu includes delicious foods served in the traditional Vietnamese-family style meals, giving you a taste of authentic Vietnamese culture. While you wine and dine you can watch the sunset over the gorgeous rural landscape, casting the local fishermen hauling in their nets, the boats sailing past, and the children waving from the riverbank, all in the golden hues of dusk.
Once you finish your meal, take the chance to relax together as you sip wine and watch the stars twinkle overhead. The boat will continue to take you down the river towards the beautiful Hoi An, a twinkle in lights that showcase this incredible, romantic city.
