A Quiet Way To Visit The Quiet Countryside !!
Distance: 8 km. Time Duration: 1.5 – 2 hours.
Highlights: rice field, water buffaloes, vegetable farm, rivers.
Welcome to the beautiful countryside of Hoi An. Your bicycles and tour guides are ready at a local temple to stay away from the traffic.
From the pagoda, we will cycle along some villages with small farm houses, along quiet concrete roads covered by shade of bamboo
lso, we will cycling to the famous Tra Que vegetable or herbal village where you can see a traditional way of growing vegetables.
Have a break at the corner of the village with fresh drinks, some snacks and enjoy the fresh air from the rice field, watching children with uniform cycling by to school.
Sometimes you go under the shade of coconut trees, past some water ponds with some thatch huts that make the Post Card beauty. You can stop by some huge black water buffaloes and experience the feeling of being a hero when you tip the famer to ride on his big black one.
Following on the beautiful road, you will pass the water coconut area, in one of many branches of the river. Stop a few minutes for photos and keep quiet for a few minutes for the Vietnam war sights which took place here between the two sides through the tour guide’s speech.
It is time for the middle rice field lane cycling. Sometimes you pass some fishermen in the small river branch. Sometimes you pass some dry shrimp farms with full of white egrets.
Cycling through some more villages where you can see some children playing soccer in the local play ground and some more pretty local houses to the main river bank where the boat awaits for you.
A boat cruise in the river to see the river life at the end of the cycling is a great way to relax and enjoy the scenery. Some cows are eating grass on some green islands, birds flying on some trees, some fisherman and woman catching some fish,…
The cruise will take you to a traditional café where you will sample the best local food cooked by the family that has lived in Hoi An for many generations. The cooking style is a mixture between Vietnamese and Chinese.
After the desert of the meal is the special treatment: herbal foot massage. You will fall into sleep whilst the local women massage your feet in the space of herb smells and mysterious traditional music.
At 1:30 p.m we will take you back to your hotel and finish an interesting day.
