Itinerary

We will spend time with local farmers and fishermen on this tour. We journey by bicycle and boat and explore the countryside of Hoi An and experience traditional farming and fishing methods as we discover the waterways and fishing villages.

08.00 Pick-up at your hotel. After a short briefing, your guide will take you to the Nguyen Hoang Dock to continue our journey along the river. Our chic boat is waiting and we board for the journey along the Thu Bon River.    

08.30 We stop and enjoy the sights and sounds of Tra Nhieu fishing village. 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. 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.

09.30 After that, we board the boat again and continue our journey along the river to a local dock. 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.

10.00 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.
