The ‘thung chai’ or “basket boat” was developed by the Vietnamese as a way of evading a tax on the ownership of boats; levied by the naughty French during the colonial era.
.
The fishermen who built them argued that they were baskets, not boats, and still use them widely today. Mainly for shipping tourists down the Thu Bon River and dancing to Boney M on, but who doesn’t love a bit of Rasputin anyway🕺🏻🎶🚣🏻‍♀️.

La petite flotte de pêche attend patiemment que le beau temps revienne [BASQUET BOATS] During the colonial French era when the administration began levying taxes most of the poor Vietnamese fishermen could not afford to pay them so they invented this new type of boat.

這個大竹籃其實是船,叫做#thungchai ,最多可坐10人,是殖民地時代由越南漁民發明用來捕魚的。話說當年法國統治越南期間,政府要向船隻徵稅,那些付不起錢的漁民,於是發明了這個竹籃用來捕魚,並堅稱這不是船而是籃,以避免交稅

Creative. Smart. Sustainable.

Especially In the past, many of the Vietnamese depended on boats for their livelihood: fishing. When the French invaded the country, they levied taxes on almost everything, including the ownership of boats. The poor fishermen couldn't afford that, so they smartly created a new type of boat: 'thung chai'. These basket boats were tax free, highly efficiënt and sustainable: they last longer than a lifetime.💡 And nowadays, many tourists  can enjoy the funny basket tours as well 👌🏻 #smartpeople #thungchai

Travel log Da Nang, Vietnam. Curious round basket boats (thung chai), also known as coracle. It is not easy to navigate and is very heavy. Resisted temptation to join the few fishermen on a trip out to sea!
.
Origins have it that poor Vietnamese fishermen who depended on boats for their livelihood invented these to avoid paying taxes on boats, arguing with French colonials that these were not boats, but are baskets, and not subjected to taxes. Since then, these "boats" have been a main feature in Vietnam.

Почему во Вьетнаме рыбацкие лодки круглые? 
Есть легенда о том, как французы на территории колониального тогда Вьетнама решили обложить налогами рыбацкую часть населения страны. Мол, с этих пор все обладатели лодок должны уплачивать пошлину.
А вследствие того, что Франция - это Европа, а Европа сплошь буквоеды, то и прописать необходимо, что есть лодка. Ну кто не знает, что такое лодка? Это как-то заложено в нас. Плывет по воде, маленькое, с человеком или грузом на борту, значит лодка. Но не тут-то было. Закон есть закон, а стало быть и определение должно присутствовать. Ну и описали лодку, как некое сооружение, имеющее 2 борта, корму, нос, киль и т.д. и т.п.
И вот тут-то в действие вступила вьетнамская смекалка. Мол, приходят к рыбаку за налогами, а он такой и говорит, что, дескать, лодок-то и нет. — Как нет? — Да вот так. Есть огромные корзины для риса, овощей, чего-угодно. А лодок нет.

Basket boats / Thung Chai in Mui Ne. The Vietnamese created those to avoid boat taxes from the French authorities during occupation.

The thung chai, or Vietnamese basket boat goes back to the days the French started heavily taxing boats. So the locals built these and said “It’s a giant basket, not a boat! You can’t tax a basket!” And they totally got away with it. #ingenuity #taxloophole #thungchai #hoian #danang

Basket boats or thung chai are traditional vietnamese boats which were invented by the poorest fishers during the French Colonial Era. At that time a variety of new taxes were introduced, one of these being a tax of owning a boat. Fishers seeing that they didn't have enough money to pay, came up with a completely new design that didn't look at all as a boat. They kept on saying that they were baskets, not boats, and finally they managed not to pay the charges. Phu Yen, Vietnam.

En ese momento se introdujeron nuevos impuestos, entre ellos un impuesto por poseer un barco. Los pescadores al ver que no tenían suficiente dinero para pagar, se vieron obligados a inventar un diseño completamente nuevo que no se pareciera en nada a un barco. Insistieron que eran canastas, no barcos, y finalmente lograron no pagar los cargos. Phu Yen, Vietnam.

Circular basket boats on the beach in Hoi An. They were made by poor fishermen who argued that these were not boats at all but baskets, to avoid taxes under the French colonial era.

Vietnamese basket boats thung chai scattered on the beach. The thung chai, or “basket boat”, traces its history back to the French colonial era. As the story goes, the French arrived in Vietnam and began levying taxes left, right and centre – including a tax on the ownership of boats.

If you ever visit Hoi An, this is a must do. Travelling in a coconut boat called a Thung Chai on the Thu Bon river. A thrilling experience and unlike any attraction in Asia, I reckon. ~

Vietnamese round basket boats traces its history back to the French colonial era. When French arrived in Vietnam, they began to tax pretty much everything and everyone, including a tax on the ownership of boats. Most of the poor Vietnamese fishermen who depended on boats for their livelihood could not afford to pay the taxes, so they invented a new type of boat: the thung chai, made from bamboo. The fishermen who built them argued that these were not boats at all but baskets – and therefore couldn’t be taxed. You still can find locals using it all over coastal #Vietnam and you can go on a tour too.

Three men on the ocean in a fishing boat which probably displaces less water than your standard bathtub. This type of boat is called a thung chai. As the story goes it's popularity in Vietnam can be traced back to the french colonial times when a tax was applied to the ownership of just about anything, including boats. In order to get around this many Vietnamese fishermen would use these thung chai because when they were stowed on the beach, they look nothing like traditional boats and were often argued to be simply large baskets. Similar types of boats have been found to have been used in much of the historic world (from Vietnam to India, from native Americans to the British isles) but the oldest documentation building one of these boats is about four thousand years old.

The Basket Boat is known locally as “Thung Chai” in Vietnamese and is very popular among the local fishermen in the central regions of Vietnam.

The local fishermen really like to use it because it is very mobile and convenient, as it can easily transport people from their big boats to the land. Like this photo shows, they transport the sea products to the land after fishing from big boats.
.
Furthermore, the fishermen use it to catch fish with the fishing net and to carry oil, wood, food and other things they might need while fishing.
.
The shape of the Basket Boat is to be re-tarred every 6 months, depending on how one much care one puts in using it. The safe capacity is normally 5 people per Boat (4 guests + 1 rider). In order to learn how to have a go at it, you must have a practice round first then go for the real thing the second time. It will certainly be a lot of fun, with loads of spinning around as the boat will madly go round and round and round.
.
The Basket Boat is a unique and very interesting eco-tour STRONGLY recommended to groups of travelers and to companies looking at organizing Team Buildings or other activities on the river or sea, with the purpose of having fun and special experiences.

🇵🇹 Sabe a razão pela qual estes barcos na praia de An Bang em Hoi An no Vietname são redondos?  Durante a ocupação francesa do Vietnam, foram estabelecidos muitos impostos, entre os quais aos barcos. Os pescadores pobres que não podiam pagar estes impostos, inventaram este barco redondo (Thung Chai) e quando os franceses perguntavam o que eram, diziam apenas que eram cestas de bambu e assim escapavam habilmente aos pesados impostos e conseguiam discretamente continuar a pescar para garantir a sua sobrevivência. 🇬🇧 Do you know the reason why these boats on An Bang Beach in Hoi An, Vietnam are round? During the French occupation of Vietnam, many taxes were established, among them the ships. Poor fishermen who could not afford these taxes invented this round boat (Thung Chai), and when the French asked what they were, they simply said that were bamboo baskets and so they didn't payed the heavy taxes and were able to quietly continue fishing to ensure their survival.
