Visit the ancient site of Ponagar Cham Tower and cruise in Cai River to explore local fishing village and farms along the river. Depart from your SeaDream yacht with a rural scenic drive of coast line with coconut trees and philao trees to Nha Trang. Your Land Adventure starts with a visit of the Ponagar Cham Tower, one of the most scenic places in Nha trang. This complex of Champa towers is located right on the hill next to the Cai River. The towers namely Po Nagar are dedicated to the Divine Lady, the Mother of the Country. The towers were built in the 8th century. However they were destroyed several times by wars. They were nicely renovated in the 12th century and recently by the Vietnamese government. Take a walk from the tower to Cai River boat quay and embark a local boat to cruise on the snaky river. In front of you is Coconut Island with lots of? You guessed it, coconut trees. You have a chance to see how the local people pick up coconuts from the tall trees. Enjoy a coconut, taste its sweet juice and get a feeling of the tropical atmosphere on this island. Continue to visit a fishing village where you may have a chance to see local people weaving the fishing nets to prepare for a trip to the sea for fishing. Your next visit is the worksite where the locals specialize in building wooden fishing boats. Local people always decorate two big eyes on both sides of the wooden boats. They believe this is a good way to disguise as another sea animal to avoid attacks from the sea monsters and giant octopus. Your Land Adventure continues visiting a clay-cooked stove family where many clay stoves have been produced. The locals in the countryside still use clay stoves for cooking at home instead of gas stoves. The old stoves cannot be ruined in any way. They bring them to the Cai River and drop them on thousands of rocks at the Cai River estuary. Thereafter, cruise on the Cai River and enjoy the scenic view of both sides. Embark on the mainland for a visit to a local village. Walk in the village to see how local people work and live. You will also have a chance to taste the local tropical seasonal fruits such as mangos, pineapples, rambutans, water melons, bananas, etc… At the end of your journey, return to port by your motor coach.
