Tuoi Tre News is reporting that "Seven men have embarked on a journey on two bamboo rafts along almost the entire coast of Vietnam as a way to experience what ancient Vietnamese felt in their sea migration."
They are travelling from the north of Vietnam to Phu Quoc Island on rafts "which measure less than three by seven meters and have masts no higher than seven meters.
'They are genuinely bamboo rafts, with bamboo sticks tied together with ropes without the use of any screws or nails,' said Chau Hung, another sailor."
These rafts were used by Vietnamese dynasties in the eleventh century.
