More About This Experience

This fishing activity will take place along the picturesque and peaceful village of Kim Dong, here the traditional Vietnamese features of a typical village are still maintained. The river that runs by this village is the Thu Bon, on which your host Mr. Tran Gai will take you on his boat for the fishing trip. As much as you will enjoy the fishing, be sure to soak in the scenery as you will also get to see village roads that wind around the many houses and corn fields on either side of the river. As you move along the river, you will also notice the communities that live on the edge of the river and how they go about their lives. The general rhythm of life in this village is one where most of the locals are involved either in fishing or farming and Mr. Tran will be showing you how to do something he does almost daily - fishing with a net. Patience is the name of the game, of course but with Mr. Tran by your side it's more about how much you catch and not how long you wait! ;) A word of caution here that, when you take the fish out of the net, the sharp fins of the fish could potentially be painful if not held correctly. And finish your trip with a tasty light dish from your fishes. Have it in a local way with your new friends! NOTE: Our host uses small local wooden fishing boats which can carry 3-4 people. For a bigger groups he can arrange 2 boats. Also please inform us your weight in advance so that we can make the arrangement for you.
