Update: Apr 19, 2018
The Peace Boat of Japan has docked at Cai Lan Port in the northeastern province of Quang Ninh, carrying nearly 1,000 crewmembers and tourists from Japan, Germany, the US, the UK, Singapore, and Taiwan (China).  

Visitors on board the Peace Boat will have two days to visit the many beautiful landscapes of the province before continuing on its 97th voyage around the world.

A Vietnamese representative was appointed to board the vessel and introduce passengers to the land, people, and culture of the country.

Over the course of its voyage, the Peace Boat calls on all nations around the world to cut their spending on weapons and to raise funds for disadvantaged people.

Previously, the Peace Boat has made several visits to Da Nang and Vung Tau and joined a parade in support of Vietnamese Agent Orange/Dioxin victims.
