Super neat. We spent 4.5hrs riding mountain bikes on the back roads stopping at various places like a farmer's home with a rice mill he showed us how rice is milled, a mushroom farm, a lotus farm. We also stopped at a local market probably my favorite stop to try local snacks and see how the various stalls are set up, and a monastery also neat- we saw kids and nuns wandering around. Our guide was very knowledgeable and willing to answer all our questions. Great way to combine some exercise and learning!
This is out in the country with several fun stops and explanations about plants and life. My only issue was the bike. This is a mountain bike so if you aren't used to this seat it can be very uncomfortable
