A cycle and paddle trip to explore the rural life in Hoian

If you’re looking for a way to explore Hoi An that doesn’t involve just a walking around, then this trip is worth considering. Just a short ride out of the Old Town the stunning countryside leaves you spell bound: endless rice paddies, conical hats and water buffalo. Journey further still and discover the local people performing ancient arts and trades using skills handed down through the generations. You will explore the local life by bicycle at your own pace.

Our guide will pick you up from your hotel with bicycles and you will set off directly from here towards Duy Vinh Commune. The picturesque cycling route is highlighted with rice fields, local gardens and markets. Stop as often as you wish for taking photographs or some easy chat with locals (using our guide as a translator). There is also time to pay a visit to a local family who are still practicing the craft of weaving sedge mattresses using traditional techniques.

After around 1.5 hour cycling it is time to hop into a kayak for some time on the river. You will paddle towards Cam Thanh cocopalm forest. The area is a unique mangrove ecosystem to Hoi An and the scenery is spectacular.

To end an active morning, your lunch will be served at a local house with tasty Vietnamese food. Take as much time for relaxing as you wish before getting a transfer back to your hotel. End of services.
