Do not take a boat trip on one of the "tourist" boats". Only smell will be the diesel. So noisy i could not hear my husband talk to me. Seats were the old plastic garden type, I felt nervous the whole time, expecting it to fall over. Only the Pagoda was worth visiting, one other stop was closed. We were... More

This destination is famous about romatic view in sunset or sunrise but the water and the life on this river isn't so clean. Special if take a picture on sunrise, sunset or after raining.

I love rivers and loved being in a dragon boat taking in all the sights as we chugged along very peaceful thing to do and away from the traffic.

We came back from the tombs on a private boat & stopped at the Pagoda. Not a great deal to see on the way but a pleasant way to get back rather than a taxi. Lots of boats available

Hired a private boat through our hotel one evening. Very nice and relaxing. Elderly lady and son driving boat very pleasant and not to pushy when trying to sell goods. Lovely views of river. Pleasant experience and worth doing if weather good.

Had a half hour cruise on the dragon boat and it was very relaxing with a lovely breeze that eases the humidity and the heat around hue.Most are run by families and they have local wares on the boat that they try to sell to tourists.You have to bargain with them as i found most of the items are overpriced.All...

We took many boat rides on the river while we were here. It is a lovely way to see the sites from the water. If you are lucky like us you will even have a sales person on board - we did some great shopping on our own private dragon boat!

Part of our tour was a "cruise" on the Perfume River. This means you're seated on little plastic seats on a boat which belongs to a couple who lives on that boat. During the 20 minutes of the cruise the woman tries to sell you souvenirs which means you spend 20 long awkward minutes. And this also means you don't... More
