What to Expect
07.30     Your guide will meet  you at your hotel.  After a short briefing, it’s time to click on your helmet and peddle through the stunning  countryside, bound  for the village of Tra Que.

08.30    We arrive at  Tra Que  Village. The village is famous  for its fresh  local herbs  and vegetables, and is named  after the sweet smelling herb that is used to flavor many local Hoi An dishes. The farmers in the village use no fertilizers in their soil, using instead,  an algae found only in a lagoon adjacent  to the village. It produces  abundant and delicious herbs and vegetables. Among many others,  the herbs are used to flavor Banh Xeo, Cao Lau and My Quang, all local dishes. Local people insist on these herbs for the very best quality dish. Enjoy a village tour to learn about  the gardens  that  are abundant with red eye chilli, lemongrass, basil, coriander and spring onions. Jump right in and see how the plots are planted,  tended and watered with the guidance  of local family farmers.

10.30    It’s time to return to our bikes and travel through  the countryside,  passing coconut palms and shrimp farms as we go.   We arrive at the house  of a local fishing family. A local family and guide will take you on a journey through  the untouched waterways,  fringed by river coconut palms in the unique coracle boat: a mystery of navigation. Take the opportunity to see a local fisherman dredge the river bed in search of river snails. Remember your camera as the journey is special.

12.00    After our coracle boat  experience  we put our bicycles on our Chic boat  to travel to a local village. 

13.00     Our hosts have prepared a delicious lunch for us and we can enjoy our food with them.  Enjoy a delicious lunch prepared by the local family.

14.00    After your lunch, here we take a bicycle around  the village to meet  the locals who make  the  fishing nets  that  are so important to the  fishermen  and  women.  We have time to learn about  the life and customs  of the locals and enjoy their crafts of mat building and weaving.  It is very common  for the local craftsmen  to sing their ancient  folk songs as they work. The songs are soothing  and relaxing and we take time to enjoy the spell binding music. End of road,  making  our way to the  “Bamboo  House”  built by a bamboo craftsman,  we enjoy the traditional art of bamboo furniture making. These trades have been handed down through  the generations and continue  to play a vital role in Hoi An culture.

15.00    We board the boat again and continue  our journey along the river. The water- way is filled with birdlife and the local fishermen will be preparing  for the night’s fishing. It’s a hive of activity and the photo  opportunities are endless.

15.30    Return to Hoi An and travel by bicycle to your hotel.

16.00    Tour concludes.
