7:30   Your guide will meet you at your hotel. After a short briefing, it’s time to click on your helmet and peddle through  the stunning countryside, bound for the village of Tra Que.

8:30  We arrive at Tra Que Village. The village is famous for its fresh local herbs and vegetables, and is named after the sweet smelling herb that is used to flavor many local Hoi An dishes. The farmers in the village use no fertilizers in their soil, using instead, an algae found only in a lagoon adjacent to the village. It produces abundant and delicious herbs and vegetables. Among many others, the herbs are used to flavor Banh Xeo, Cao Lau and My Quang, all local dishes. Local people insist on these herbs for the very best quality dish. Enjoy a village tour to learn about the gardens that are abundant with red eye chilli, lemongrass, basil, coriander and spring onions. Jump right in and see how the plots are planted, tended and watered with the guidance of local family farmers.

10:30   It’s time to return to our bikes and travel through  the countryside, passing coconut palms and shrimp farms as we go.  We arrive at the house of a local fishing family. A local family and guide will take you on a journey through  the untouched waterways, fringed by river coconut palms in the unique coracle boat: a mystery of navigation. Take the opportunity to see a local fisherman dredge the river bed in search of river snails. Remember your camera as the journey is special.

12:00   After our coracle boat experience we put our bicycles on our Chic boat to travel to a local village.

13:00   Our hosts have prepared a delicious lunch for us and we can enjoy our food with them. Enjoy a delicious lunch prepared by the local family.

14:00   After your lunch, here we take a bicycle around the village to meet the locals who make the fishing nets that are so important to the fishermen and women. We have time to learn about the life and customs of the locals and enjoy their crafts of mat building and weaving. It is very common for the local craftsmen to sing their ancient folk songs as they work. The songs are soothing and relaxing and we take time to enjoy the spell binding music. End of road, making our way to the “Bamboo House” built by a bamboo craftsman, we enjoy the traditional art of bamboo furniture making. These trades have been handed down through  the generations and continue to play a vital role in Hoi An culture.

15:00   We board the boat again and continue our journey along the river. The water- way is filled with birdlife and the local fishermen will be preparing for the night’s fishing. It’s a hive of activity and the photo opportunities are endless.

15:30   Return to Hoi An and travel by bicycle to your hotel.
