An enjoyable way to see the countryside and places of interest around Hoi An is by bicycle and we have two guided cycle tours to tempt you, one of three hours and a more comprehensive one of six hours, both starting and finishing at the Resort.
Each tour makes a first stop at the Thanh Ha Pottery Village where you can see pottery items being made and try your hand at making something, with the aid of local artisans. From there, on the shorter tour, you will cycle through countryside and rice paddies to the traditional village of Tra Nhieu on the Thu Bon River. Here you can enjoy the scenery, the peaceful atmosphere and learn about the local handicrafts, including mattress making.
On the longer tour, after the Pottery Village, we will cycle along winding country roads, across bridges, passing water buffalo in the fields, to the Cam Thanh nipa palm forest, 3 km southeast of Hoi An. Next we will spend 3045 minutes learning to sail a Thung Chai – the traditional conical bamboo basket boat along the Thu Bon River. You may like to try your hand at catching fish and purple crabs in the canals.
Before returning to the Resort we will enjoy a traditional lunch with a local family and learn about their daily life.
