Itinerary Details

09.00 Your guide will meet you at your hotel in Hoi An. From here your gentle bike tour takes you on the short but beautiful ride through lush farmland, rice fields and small villages to the village of Cam Thanh. We stop along the way to visit local villagers and see how they use their surrounding resources to craft a living using age-old methods.

10.00 Take a trip along the winding river by coracle (basket) boat. A local family and guide will take you on a journey through the untouched waterways, fringed by river coconut palms. Take the opportunity to see a local fisherman dredge the riverbed in search of river snails.

11.00 Arrive at Tra Que Village. Enjoy the village tour to nurseries and herb gardens abundant with bird’s eye chili, lemongrass, basil, coriander and spring onions, all thriving in the rich soil.

11.30 Jump right in and see how the plots are planted, tended and watered with the guidance of local family farmers.

12.00 Relax and enjoy a traditional herbal foot massage in the garden.

12.45 Join in with a cookery class hosted by a local family. Each cooking lesson starts with a short introduction, explanations and demonstration of starters, accompaniments, main course and dessert. Then you roll up your sleeves and try your hand at preparing your own Hoi An 3 course specialty lunch. Sit back and enjoy your culinary creations at the family table overlooking the locals tending their land.

15.30 Board your bicycles for a gentle ride back to Hoi An and your hotel taking in the rice paddies and farmers leading their water buffalo home along the country roads.

16.00 Arrive back at your hotel where the tour ends.
