Continue to visit the local family with tradition of making fish sauce. At this village, we will know how coconut is used in building houses in countryside. See the handicraft man manipulating the furniture made of water coconut and bamboo.
Then continue to the fishing village to explore the Water Coconut Palm Forest with the unique basket boat. The basket boats are made by splitting high-quality bamboo into thin strips and drying them in the sun. The strips are then bent and knitted into a round shape. Finally the boat is coated with many layers of resin to waterproof it.
Have lunch. Then travel back to your hotel. Trip ends.
