Meanwhile, others visit Hoi An where they take bicycle tours to learn about daily life in the ancient town, participate in cooking classes, enjoy specialties and drop by My Son Sanctuary, a World Heritage site recognized by UNESCO.
The ship today reaches Nha Trang Port so that tourists can visit Po Nagar Cham Tower, Long Son Pagoda, the Oceanography Institute, fishing villages, boat building factories, Vinpearl Land Amusement Park on Hon Tre Island, and handicraft villages, and do some shopping at Dam Market.
The ship will leave Nha Trang this afternoon.
