Hoi An Bicycle Tour - Full Day
Today’s tour will begin at 07:45. Set off on a Hoi An countryside bicycle tour. Take a short warm-up ride to Hoi An’s main boat pier, board a local ferry boat, and cross the Thu Bon River.
Back on dry land, pedal into the countryside. Pass through picturesque villages where life moves at a slower pace. Pedal across rice paddies and coconut groves, criss-crossing small waterways. Stop often to take photos of the beautiful landscapes.
Along the way there are also plenty of chances to see traditional handicrafts. Visit a wood carving workshop making everything from furniture to statues. See a boat building yard where river boats and other vessels are
created using traditional methods handed down from generation to generation. There may also be a chance to see the production of ‘basket boats’, small woven baskets that can be paddled by one person as a sort of raft. These visits provide a great opportunity to see the remarkable innovation and skills of the Vietnamese people.
Having worked up an appetite, take a break for lunch. A selection of traditional Vietnamese dishes will be served near a family house in a quiet, scenic location. Then it’s time to return to Hoi An. Board a wooden river boat for a relaxing 45-minute cruise back to town, arriving in the mid-afternoon. (L)
