Kayak tours to clean up Hoi An waterways
A kayak tour operator has launched trips that will give both local people and foreigners the chance to clean up waterways around Hoi An ancient town in central Quang Nam province. The tours will set out every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday morning, and cost $10 per person. Kayakers will depart from the Thuan Tinh sandbank near Cua Dai Bridge and head down to the Thu Bon River and the small canals in the nipa palm forest in Cam Thanh commune before reaching Hoi An. While enjoying the beauty of the ancient town and the nipa palm forest, kayakers will also collect rubbish, including plastic bags and bottles, to raise awareness among local people and tourists about keeping Hoi An and its rivers clean and green.
