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
