07:45 Pick up from your hotel to the meeting, where the tour starts.
In a small group, you will cycle on our comfortable bamboo bikes through the mostly quiet streets of Hoi An and surrounding
communities. You will get an inside view in the daily local life and enjoy the beautiful, tranquil countryside along the way.
Firstly, you will cycle to the port where a ferry will bring you to the Island of Cam Kim. On the other side, you will visit a local farmer who will unveil the secrets of traditional Vietnamese mat weaving and rice wine making. Alongside the picturesque riverbanks, fishermen prepare their colorful boats for another day of fishing.
A small, long bridge will take you back to the mainland, where you will visit a somewhat hidden, but beautiful temple nearby. Then you will continue your way heading for a small factory where the typical Vietnamese rice paper is made.
After lunch with local dishes, you will pass through a large cemetery with impressive tombstones and mausoleums, giving you a better understanding in the Vietnamese culture and customs. You will make sure to take sufficient time to relax in shady locations, for cooling down and enjoying a refreshing drink.
As your journey goes on, we cycle through an area where farmers plant mandarin trees which are often typically sold as decoration during the Chinese new-year celebrations. Hereafter, you will be pedaling through fields of water coconut trees, where you might see fishermen catching shrimps and small fishes.
Next, you will ride along a beautiful rural track we head to Tra Que Village, where you will see how farmers grow vegetables. Then you will continue your tour by cycling through the beautiful water coconut fields at Cam Thanh.
The people cut the leaves and dry them before they can be used to build a roof cover. You will be impressed by the beautiful countryside, green rice paddies and grazing water buffaloes along the way back to the meeting point.
16:00 The tour ends here, but you will have the time to relax over a drink before returning with even a bigger bag full of memories.
