Full description
After being collected from your Hoi An accommodation, you'll make your way to the Triem Tay Village. This village was once lost and abandoned due to heavy water erosion, which caused all of the villagers to be evacuated. The bamboo village was later rescued and revived by a world-class architect, Mr. Bui Kien Quoc.

These Triem Tay tours, which have been designed by veterans of Hoi An tourism industry, are efforts to bring the soul back to these lands, by employing returning locals to introduce the once-lost town to travelers. You will visit the local wet market, before boarding the motorboat for a relaxing ride down the Thu Bon river to reach the bamboo oasis of Triem Tay.

Once there you will learn about the village's unique culture, as well as how to craft lanterns and cook unique dishes using local bamboo. At the conclusion of your experience, you will be returned to your accommodation in Hoi An.
