We had a wonderful time today with Yen and her brother. The coconut boat experience is a lot of fun and there are plenty of crabs to see and catch if you would like. Yen’s brother makes incredible rings and hats out of coconut leaves which is really impressive and funny as well. Other tours are extremely loud and busy, but this experience was peaceful and very enjoyable.
The meal afterwards was absolutely delicious, some of the tastiest food I have tried whilst here in Vietnam.

One word of warning: there are many other companies that pretend to be this company, and many hotel receptionists will try to send you to other companies because they are being paid a large commission. This is how most things work in Vietnam unfortunately. Please make sure you come to the right place and that your reception or taxi driver does not take you to a different company who is paying them to do so.
The closest road to Yen’s house is van lang ( thon 7 ) , cam thanh - and she will probably guide your taxi wearing a red helmet and on a red scooter.

Yen is a really friendly person and offered us a tour in a basket boat with her father for a very good price. In addition, she allowed us to park our scooter for free at a house nearby.
Her father doesn't speak a lot of English, but he showed us everything important around the forest and made some souvenir out of coconut leafes for us. Other tours around that place are more 'party tours' with very loud music on their basket boats which doesn't really get along with the beautiful nature around.
We can just highly recommend the uncomplicated tour with coconut garden tours. 45 minutes that are not wasted!

We loved our hour travelling around the coconut groves with Yen’s brother. He doesn’t speak any English but still managed to show me how to get crabs and the best photos of life on the river and to keep my six year old happy and dancing. Very good fun at a very good price :)

Yen is lovely and her brother took us out on his basket boat for an hour or so, fishing and seeing the local area! Highly reccommend!
