Start your adventure by meeting our guide at your hotel. We then cycle a short distance to escape from the city and main roads to Tra Que village where we meet the locals working on their herb and vegetable gardens and watch and learn how the Vietnamese farm organically. Many of the Vietnamese country boys’ childhood was spent looking after their water buffalo. The water buffalo is a very friendly animal and used to be the main working force for the farming industry; it was used to plow the rice fields before the plantation or to pull the wagons full of farming products. Today we use machinery to work the fields instead of buffalo, so you do not see as many buffalo in Vietnam now. However, Hoi An farmers had a smart idea of using buffalo to carry our travelers for a unique fun Hoi An experiences!
We continue our cycle ride through the rice fields, meeting local farmers along the way and seeing how friendly their water buffalo are when we have the chance to take a ride with them. We stop at the beautiful water palm area and visit a local fisherman and his family for snacks and chat to them about their lives.
We then experience a ride on the traditional bamboo basket boat amidst the famous coconut palms where the Viet Cong used to hide during the War. Finally, we enjoy a leisurely cycle back to the centre of Hoi An.
