Explore the roads less travelled.
This countryside tour of Hoi An will give you real insight to local life. Setting off from Café Zoom in Hoi An, we ride over the bridge to Cam Kim island and along the riverside into the beautiful rural countryside. First stops include an Ancestral House and a traditional boatbuilders yard before we set off to explore the sleepy island villages. Zig-zag through the breathtaking scenery of rice paddies & farmland and enjoy the cooling breeze. Next, learn from friendly local families the art of mat weaving, farming, and how to make (and eat) the perfect Banh Dap rice crackers. Meeting local families is a must-do to see the real way of life in Vietnam.
After snacking on rice crackers, visit a local café to fuel up on local drip-coffee & learn the art of coffee roasting. Then gear up for an adrenalin pumping 300-meter bamboo bridge river crossing. We make our way to the coast at the Thu Bon river mouth, along roads lined with Casuarina Pine & Cashew Nut Trees. Finally, it’s up high and over the new bridge offering spectacular panoramic views of Hoi An, which takes us to the water coconut palm fringed Cam Thanh and then on to a sensational seafood lunch on Hoi An’s most glorious beaches. This countryside tour of Hoi An then concludes with a free drop-off at your hotel.
