Then back to the boat, where you will relax with happy hour, enjoy a beer or cocktail before joining your fellow travelers in making fresh spring rolls- a traditional Vietnamese dish. Dinner includes many delicious dishes and is accompanied by lively discussions with happy and friendly folks from all over the world.

The boat will be moored overnight in a quiet area.
