Countryside Bike Tour
CYLE TO EXPLORE TRADITIONAL CRAFTS
This half-day countryside bike tour offers deep insight into the traditional crafts of Vietnam and the local livelihoods through visiting villages, interacting and exploring, and even getting your hands on crafting your own products.
Starting in the countryside, follow small and quiet paths in the rice fields to the well-known Tra Que Vegetable Village to see many different species of tropical herbs and learn about the traditional techniques applied to produce best quality vegetables while sustaining environmental protection.
Continue to a shrimp farm where farmers essentially rely on nature to farm tiger prawns. The ride then leads you to a traditional lantern workshop to hear about the history and art of lantern making, and make your own lantern with the guidance of an experienced local craftsman.
Slide along the scenic Thu Bon River, stop at a fishing village where fishermen use different kinds of traps and tricks to catch fish. Then take a boat ride to Kim Bong, a carpentry village established 3 centuries ago with the famous art of wood carving and wood boat building.
Our final stop will be a rice wine distillery in which we see and taste the local rice wine, also known as "happy wine", a choice for the locals to afford and get drunk after a hard working day.
