Meet a guide at your Hoi An hotel at 8am, then hop on a bicycle and ride to the nearby ferry pier. Board a boat for the 10-minute ride to Tra Nhieu, where your countryside bike tour begins.
Follow a carefully-designed route that makes use of shady paths and village roads, so you can enjoy the peaceful atmosphere in the rural landscape surrounding Hoi An. Stop in villages along the way to learn how locals make distinctive handicrafts such as wooden boats, rice paper, and colorful woven mats, then try out several traditional fishing techniques that have been used on the river for generations.
Trade your bike for a wooden paddle, and learn to steer a thung chai, a bamboo basket boat that’s become a symbol of rural culture in the area. Paddle past a bamboo bridge, then visit a nearby family home for a local style lunch from a home kitchen. Meet a boat for the 30-minute return trip to Hoi An, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel at roughly 1:30pm.
