Enjoy a ferry boat to Tam Hai Island, then carry on the ride across this Island. We can see wooden ships in many colors on a ferry crossing river. Most locals here live mainly on fishing and seafood farming. The Island is small, but it is worth for us to explore. Westerners rarely see this Island. We take another ferry to the mainland, enjoying the dirt road biking along the Truong Giang River. The River and its branches offer terrific views of bamboo boats, wooden boats, and small fishing villages. The family members are very busy when fishing boats return. Fishermen's wives help them hang the fish on nets to dry some, primarily for sales. We have lunch in Tam Thanh- a local beach. In the afternoon, we spend more time exploring the lush farmland and rice paddies and less time on coastal fishing routes. It's also a terrific chance to see many un-modernized villages; thatch houses buffaloes on rice fields, bamboo bridges, and remote villages.
