Overview
Experience a side of rural life that’s impossible to access independently on this Hoi An farming and fishing tour. With the help of your local guide, do more than just meet farmers—work alongside them and ride their water buffalo. Join local fishermen, paddle a bamboo coracle, savor an authentic meal, and pedal through charming villages. This tour includes round-trip transportation.
Highlights
  • Cycle villages, tend vegetable gardens, and ride a water buffalo
  • Watch fishermen at work and learn to paddle a bamboo boat
  • Savor a local lunch or dinner washed down with beer or soft drinks
  • Choose between morning or afternoon tours, with round-trip transportation
What to Expect
Your local guide will collect you from your Hoi An hotel and transfer you in air-conditioned comfort to the spot where your bike tour begins. After a briefing, pedal along easy country roads to a rural village, meet farmers, and immerse in local life. Hoe the soil, water the crops, and ride a water buffalo through the fields. Next, board a motorboat and sail to the spot where the river meets Cua Dai beach. Learn how fishermen ply their trade and paddle a bamboo coracle boat through charming waterways. Enjoy lunch or dinner on board your craft, washed down with an ice-cold beer or soft drink, before your guide transports you back to your hotel.

As tour operators we have been using Jack Tran's tours since 2006 Our tours in Hoi An were only 1 nighters because the old town was only worth a day's visit. When we introduced the Farming and Fishing tour in our programs (+/-30 groups per year!) it enabled us to stay2 nights
