SUP surfing and swimming for cooling off on Huong River

TTH.VN - Previously, due to the regulations for COVID-19 pandemic prevention, many people could not come to the area of the Huong River to swim or to go jogging in the park. From our observations, people often choose the section from Da Vien Bridge to Phu Xuan Bridge on the Huong River for surfing SUP and swimming.

In the morning, people come to this river session early than 5 a.m., and after 5:30 pm in the late afternoon. Beside using the service of renting SUP and life jackets, many families also buy for themselves their tools for swimming. “Since the regulations of pandemic prevention have been loosened, I take my family out here every late afternoon for surfing SUP, swimming, and relaxing,”,  shared Mr. Nguyen Van Lan (Phuong Duc Ward, Hue city). Some people said that Huong River water is not only clean but also cool.

Most people coming to the Huong River for swimming are aware of abiding by pandemic prevention measures. Furthermore, the SUP and life jackets rental units also arrange lifeboats to stay on duty during the time the customers are using their service.

In addition to the above river section, there is also SUP surfing service towards the upstream section passing through Kim Long and Huong Long. This activity attracts a great number of local people living nearby coming to swim for cooling off.
