    What to Expect
    Following hotel pickup in Hoi An by minivan, you'll receive a safety briefing along with a bicycle. Then ride off into the countryside with your guide, stopping to snap photos of the rural views along the way.

    You'll pedal into Tra Que, a village known for its herb and vegetable farming. Explore the gardens and meet local farmers while you learn about organic techniques used to grow produce consumed around Hoi An. If you'd like to participate, join in on activities like hoeing, transplanting, watering, and fertilizing with seaweed. 

    Then continue by bike through rice fields and alongside shrimp farms, duck farms, bamboo, and working livestock. On arrival at the home of a local farmer in the Cam Thanh ecological village, learn about daily life while you try your hand at traditional rice farming. You might learn to plow the fields with a water buffalo or even take a ride while you discover time-honored methods of irrigation.

    After a local lunch, relax with a therapeutic foot massage. Then you're off for a buffalo cart ride along the rice paddies.

    In the afternoon, transfer by minivan to Phuoc Hai fishing village and join local fishermen aboard a boat. Watch a net-casting demonstration and venture into a coconut palm jungle to find out how to paddle a basket boat. Follow your guide on an eco-village stroll and hear war stories from a former guerrilla soldier who fought during the Vietnam War (American War) that raged for two decades.

    Returning to the boat you'll reach a beach and enjoy Vietnamese traditional snacks on board with a cold beer or other beverage. Before minivan transport back to your hotel, watch the sunset behind Phuoc Hai fishing village as fishermen return to the ocean.
