What You Can Expect

Full-Day Hoi An Countryside Bike Tour Including Chuc Thanh Pagoda, Japanese Tomb and Cooking Class

Tra Que herb garden veggie village

Begin with 8am pickup at your Hoi An hotel, then get fitted with a bike for the trip to Cam Thanh, a village that’s known for its thriving coconut trees. Pass a shrimp farm, duck farms, buffalo, and bamboo along the way, and see small plots of vegetables growing by the roadside.

Trade your bike for a seat in a bamboo basket boat, on a 1-hour trip into the coconut palm forest. See a low-roofed house made entirely of coconut and try to catch crabs in the water. Continue riding your bike towards Thanh Nam, a fishing village where locals catch fish, crabs, squid and shrimp. Ride into Tra Que, an agricultural community that’s 1.5 miles (2.5 km) from Hoi An. Tour gardens that produce a wide variety of herbs and vegetables, and learn about Vietnamese farming techniques: work seaweed into the soil, then transplant seedlings, and water vegetables.

Prepare a Vietnamese lunch yourself, learning to cook Tam Huu spring rolls, and crisp, Vietnamese pancakes, or Bánh Xèo. You’ll make a total of 7 dishes, then relax over the lunch you’ve made. After lunch, make the return trip to Hoi An, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

This tour was a good sample of the Hoi An countryside. The and #34;farming and #34; felt a bit hokey and there was a market visit which consisted of a guide literally pointing at things and saying their names without explanation. But the basket boat crab fishing and cooking class were fun.
