Nha Trang Authenticity Along The Cai River

Nha Trang Authenticity
along The Cai River

Inundated with authenticity and Vietnamese means to make an honest living and away from the Nha
Trang Beaches, a region of prosperity and commerce arises from behind the horizon.
Follow the contours of the Cai River and a new way to see Nha Trang emerges.

WHY THIS TOUR?

Trading the sunny beach side of Nha Trang for a more countryside-infused experience is woven around the Cai River and the historical remnants of the Champa Kingdom. For 8 hours, farms and rice paddy fields, locals moving on with their lives, living in harmony with nature, and orchards as far as the eye can see pass the revue.

With the weaving Cai river as a the main irrigation source and natural GPS to guide us through the wonders of authentic Nha Trang, blazing new trails away from the sandy shores and sunbeds will leave an everlasting impression.

TRAIL ITINERARY

Nha Trang Authenticity along Cai River

08:30 - 16:30

Your English-speaking guide and driver will welcome you early in the morning at your Nha Trang hotel before turning inlands for what will be a rewarding day from start to finish. The tour starts with paying homage to the religious ruins of the Po Nagar Cham Towers, a sacred Hindu site dating back to the 2nd century AD. The towers were constructed between the 7th and the 12th century and were used as a central meeting point for Hindu worshipping. The towers are named in honour of the former Cham Princess who introduced her people to profitable weaving and wet rice cultivation techniques.

From there, it is a short ride to the local pier for a scenic boat trip over the Cai River. The source of the Cai River’s existence lies in the heart of the south-central mountain ranges of Vietnam along the border with Cambodia. Not only used for boat trips, the Cai River endows numerous farms and lands as the main water source during the dry season. Pass by centuries-old houses as you make stops en route to try different kind of tropical fruit. This soothing trip will end with lunch at a local restaurant near the Cai River banks.

After lunch, a visit to a local handicraft work shop will show you authentic means on how local residents earn an honest living. The nearby market offers plenty of browsing time through its fruit, vegetable and other daily needs. All this are pure and unaltered ways of how the local community fills their day through farming and authentic means of commercial activities.

We return back to Nha Trang at the end of the afternoon.
