Find traditional architecture, pavilions, and rice fields on a bike tour from Hue to the picturesque Chuon Lagoon, then explore the lagoon by boat. Follow the Nhu Y River through historical neighborhoods and farmland, tracing an easy-going route to the edge of the lagoon. Visit stilt houses, watch local fisherman and dine on grilled seafood and local beer before returning to Hue by car.
Meet your guide at your centrally located hotel in Hue, then start your bike ride near the village of Vinh Ve by Tam Giang Lagoon. Pedal at a relaxed pace with plenty of time to enjoy the views—you’ll cover 7.5 miles (12 km) during the ride. Take in the traditional lines of historical pavilions, elegant remnants of pre-war Vietnam that survived extensive bombing.
Leave the city behind for picturesque rice fields—green or gold, depending on the season—and watch farmers at work in their paddies. When you reach Chuon Lagoon, trade your bicycle for a seat on a boat. Learn about daily life and culture as you explore, stopping to visit the houses that local people build on stilts, elevated above the surface of the water. Relax over a grilled seafood dinner with Vietnamese beer, then finish the day at your Hue hotel.
A bit apprehensive when our guide arrived with the bikes outside our hotel, but we followed him into the traffic and it was fine, then headed out of the city which didn't take long through these small roads and lanes, and even on the main highway which was deserted except for some cows. we watched some ducks getting loaded onto a motorbike for market, really hard case. ended up at this small place where there were a whole lot of boats, jumped on one and headed out into the farms I guess you could call it. they have their own fenced off place where they catch the fish and Prawns etc. They also sleep there on huts on bamboo.
Went to a new Restaurant on an island of sorts and got served up all this seafood and cold beers. The food was good and the people were all very nice and seemed very pleased to us there.
The sun gave an amazing sunset view and got some great photos then back into the shore and truck ride back to hotel.
Our guide Jack Ho was really great and would recommend anyone to do this, such fun and to get out of the city as well
