- Do you prefer to travel by boat or ship?
Well, to be honest, I have never thought about it before, but if I have to choose, I will go with traveling by boat. Although I’ve heard people saying that boat are dangerously lighting fast, this is the aspect I like about boating. I tried it once some years ago and that was one of the most fascinating experiences I have ever had in my life. It’s also cheaper than travelling by ship, though.
- How often you may go boating?
Seldomly, actually. Since I’m a university student living in a big city like Ho Chi Minh City and I am too busy with my study, I hardly have any change to go for a boat trip. Fortunately, my uncle, who lives in coastal area, the middle of my country, is a boat owner, so I can enjoy boat journeys whenever I to visit him.
- In your country do people use boats?
Yes, there are all kinds of boats, for personal use and commercial use. They’re very common on the coast.
- What have you ever done by boat?
I once travel by boat to my grandma’s home along Yangzi River and that was the only time I travel by boat because it cost me for more than 3 days, and the food there was nothing but delicious and I had no alternative but to survive on a diet of instant noodles.
What do they use boats for?
Lots of businesses use boats, or ships, to transport their goods to other countries and I have several friends whose families have small boats for using in their leisure time, mainly at weekends, they go fishing or diving or sometimes just to sail around the coast and visit one of the many fishing villages that you can find.
- Would you like to own a boat?
Yes, one day in the future maybe. It’s a great way to relax and see something different and it’s nice and healthy being out on the water for an afternoon.
- What would you do with a boat?
I think I’d do the same as most people here, go fishing and diving, take my friends along with me, maybe take some food and drink with us and have a picnic or sail round the coast and explore a bit.
- Would you shop online or in a store for a boat?
I’d probably do some research online first, you know, about different models and specifications, and then go to a dealer and actually look at any boat that I was interested in. Obviously I’d want to take it for a test drive and make sure that I like it before buying it. If I found a boat I liked and wanted to buy then I would try to find it at the best price so maybe I’d buy it online or maybe from a local boat dealer depending on the best price I could get.
