Man Thai Fishing Village

Further along the coast towards Son Tra peninsula (also known as Monkey Mountain), you’ll see Da Nang’s main fishing village. Despite the city’s modernization, fisherfolk still use traditional methods and rattan basket boats to make their catch. Venture down to the beach at sunset to get an upclose view of the fish for sale. The locals are sociable and full of smiles but prepare your nose for the stench of fish.In the cool of the evening the beach comes alive with locals making full use of the wonders of nature on their door step. Swimming and lively beach games are the main activities. Meander among the fishermen and their families as they haggle and strike bargains with local restaurants for their day’s catch. Soon your taste buds are stirred by the aroma of fish being cooked- barbecued, fried, boiled. And you know this fish is fresh: you saw it being bought right here on the beach. Head straight for any number of beach-side seafood restaurants and tuck into the delicious catch of the day.

As you wander the beach front, take a close look at the fishing ‘boats’. They are remarkably simple in design and yet they have stood the test of time. These round ‘basket-boats’ have remained unchanged for umpteen centuries. Built around a frame of split bamboo, the hull is simply woven bamboo lacquered to make it water-resistant.
