Cam Pho, Hoi An, Quang Nam, Vietnam
Discover the greener and less-touristy side of Vietnam with this exciting 3.5-hour exploration of a village near the Hoi An area. Get picked up at your hotel/accommodation in central Hoi An, before you hop on a bike and start making your way to the village. Take in the sights of the lush vegetation and bright flowers as you pedal past crystal-clear rivers and rice fields. Once you arrive at your destination, you'll immerse yourself in the local culture and traditions as you try out traditional net fishing and visit craft shops that specialize in bamboo products. Step inside a round bamboo boat and enjoy a brief lesson on paddling, then proceed to the water coconut forest and learn about it from your English-speaking tour guide. Head back to the village and get ready for a show like no other as villagers perform inside a basket boat, go boat racing, and demonstrate proper crab fishing techniques. You'll also get to meet and get to know some of the local people as you stop by a house and enjoy traditional Vietnamese snacks like Fried Spring Rolls (Chả Giò,) Vietnamese Pancakes (Bánh Xèo,) as well as some refreshing drinks! After eating, say goodbye to your host and pack up, before you get dropped off back at central Hoi An.
