On the way back from Kim Bong Village - the approach to Hoi An from the water is worth the trip alone. Thu Bon river is a very busy waterway with lots of activities - you see fishing boats, ferries and boats carrying goods up and down the river.
The locals travel between the islands on big ferry boats which carry both people and their motor bikes and bicycles.
As you approach the town - you begin to see the buildings from the water - which is a really captivating sight. This must be the view that has greeted fishermen and seafaring merchants for hundreds of years.
