HOI AN BICYCLE TOUR
US$15.00
Overview
Escape the city and discover Hoi An’s rural countryside on a bike tour, an active and enjoyable way to see more of the Vietnamese countryside in less time. Traveling by bike means you’ll be able to stop easily at places of interest without the hassle of parking and access places, such as rural villages, that coaches and cars cannot. Plus, a choice of morning or afternoon departure means you can pick a time to suit your schedule.
What to Expect

The route is designed to showcase Hoi An and past and present.  We explore hidden passageways and winding alleyways of Hoi An's historic core, stopping to photograph the iconic Japanese bridge. Crossing first the canal bridge near the night market we continue to the new bridge connecting Hoi An proper and its southern villages. Within a few minutes we stop to visit a local family making noodle in the traditional method. These savory rice rice flour noodle is a common breakfast staple in the countryside. The ride continues a beautiful village where we are welcomed into a family home. Our host is nearly 90, fought in the American war, and with his wife maintains a lovely family chapel on site. 

The tour turns rural cycling past rice fields and vegetable farms along small canals and waterways towards a boat building site. Fishing is still the lifeblood of the province and the hand-crafted construction of these vessels is amazing to witness and photograph. If the timing is right, we'll also have a the opportunity to witness entire families repairing their fishing nets between journeys at sea. 

The roads narrow again to concrete paths and our final stops include a traditional mat weaving shop and a family distillery where rice wine has been produced in the same manner for generations.  It's a short ride from here to where we board a local ferry for a trip back to town. Have your cameras ready for great views of the Hoi An waterfront.
We take care on all of our tours to provide water and snacks will be served along the route. There's a stop for tea, too.

 

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Visit boat building workshop: to see how wooden boats are made by the skillful workers there maintained from the 15th century.
  • Visit a family that makes rice noodle: Here, you can interact with local people and even can try making the noodle yourself and know more about the daily life of the people on the island.
  • Visit a family that makes sleeping mat and try making the sleeping mat under the instructions of locals
  • Visit ancestral house to learn about our traditional workship how Vietnamese people show high respectation to our ancestor.
