The tour kicks off with a delicious smoothie and muffin at our comfortable riverside lounge in the center of Hoi An. After that it’s time to hop on your scooter to start exploring. First up is a drive past the old town to Cam Nam Island where we’ll visit a local ship repair yard to experience the hard work involved in maintaining a local fishing boat. This stop represents the special connection Hoi An people have with the ocean and river and you’ll learn about daily life both on and off the water.
Next on the agenda is a short drive through a local village and beautiful countryside, we will visit some local houses and locations to see and speak to people making important local products such as rice crackers, shoes, lanterns. We’ll also visit a unique and creative outdoor gym which is sure to entertain you.
After all that exploration, it will be a good time to take a break for rest and refreshment. We’ll stop at a local stop overlooking Hoi An Ancient Town and the Thu Bon River where our NGO partner, Streets International will provide a healthy local snack and drink and tell you about their mission to educate and train disadvantaged youth in order to offer them a career in hospitality. Then, time to capture the beauty of Hoi An landscape. Afterwards, on our drive through the countryside, you’ll experience up close the resplendent beauty of the rice paddies, grazing buffalo’s and monkey bridges (the local nickname for unique bamboo bridges so thin that it is joked that only monkeys can cross them!), all of which offer plenty of perfect photo opportunities
We’ll cruise along to Tra Que Village, a beautiful herb and vegetable garden which supplies many of the restaurants in the ancient town. Here you’ll learn about the herbs and spices that give distinct flavor to local dishes, and the hard work that goes into growing them.
At the end of the tour, guest can unwind in a stunning beach lounge overlooking one of the best beaches in
Vietnam, An Bang Beach, with some delicious food and drinks.
