Itinerary Details

08.00 Your guide for today will pick you up from your hotel in Hoi An and take you to the small villages in the beautiful surrounding countryside. The most vibrant time of the day as hoards of children set off for school and villagers to the market, bikes and trailers laden with their daily wares. 

09.00 We board the ferry and head for Duy Hai fishing hamlet, arriving as the small fishing boats return with their daily catch. We then spend a couple of hours cycling and exploring, stopping to take a tour of the raucous Noi Rang market.

11.00 We take a break to sample ‘My Quang’, a regional noodle dish that originates in Quang Nam, the province that is home to Hoi An. As we eat the villagers return to their family homes for lunch and silence descends upon the village.

11.30 Back on our bikes for a leisurely 45minute ride to the floating restaurant, where you will have a delicious lunch of freshly caught seafood.

13.15 Back on the bikes. Arrive in Kim Bong craft village as the carpenters return to work from their siesta. A stunning ride through lush countryside and tracks lined by river coconut palms, with the gentle breeze sweeping in off the Thu Bon River.

14.00 After a fun opportunity to interact with the Kim Bong villagers, we set off on the winding tracks through rice fields and villages famous locally for producing sleeping mats. There is a stop to meet one of the few remaining coracle (basket) boat builders, a dying local trade. We then take in a visit to the shipbuilding yard giving you an insight in to the importance of these trades in an area dependent upon fishing as a livelihood.

14.30 Moving on to the wood carving workshops where your guide will introduce you to the carpenters and give you the chance to see these talented craftsmen produce everything from daily wares through to the intricate detailing involved in their more decorative work.

15.00 Board a local boat for the journey back to the old town. Enjoy the banter of the locals and the stunning waterways edged by the unique architecture of Hoi An. Return to your hotel where the tour ends.
