This tour provides you with a close-up and intimate exposure to both the local farming and fishing communities. Accompanied by your tour guide, you commence the day leisurely cycling along country roads witnessing local Vietnamese rural life first hand.
What to Expect
Your guide will pick you up at your hotel before you cycle to a local farming village. Travel along picturesque country by bus or bike to enjoy the views. Discover the daily working life of local farmers – hoeing the soil, watering vegetables in an organic herb garden, riding water buffalo in the field, and enjoying the fresh countryside air.
Then, board the boat and cruise to the mouth of the river where it meets the Cua Dai Sea. You will try your hand at local traditional fishing techniques using round and cast nets. Explore the now tranquil coconut-palm flanked waterways of a past war and hear of the extreme conditions endured by soldiers on both sides.
Have fun catching beautiful purple crabs on a bamboo basket boat. Visit a local water coconut palm village, take a walk around the village and have some tea and snacks with the locals. Back on-board the boat, enjoy lunch and a cold beer or soft drink. In the afternoon, return to your hotel by coach.
