Make your way to a central location in Hoi An at 1pm, where you’ll join a guide and group for the trip to the river. Board a boat for the 45-minute cruise on the Son Thu River, heading into a secluded part of the countryside.
Return to shore for a bike ride with a guide, pedaling a total of 8.7 miles (14 km) along the hard-packed sand at the edge of the beach. Keep in mind that the beach ride is only possible at low tide; if the tour takes place at high tide, the route passes through a series of fishing villages. You’ll have time to pause along the way to enjoy the beach, where you might see fisherman working in basket boats, and enjoy views across a stretch of untouched coast that extends to the horizon. Pack a swimsuit, and you can slip into the water to cool off during the ride.
At the end of the afternoon, turn off the beach and continue a couple of miles farther to the estuary of the Thu Bon River. Board a boat for a short return trip to Hoi An, where this tour concludes.
