This experience takes you to Kim Bong Carpentry village, Duy Vinh Sleeping-Mat Weaving village and Thanh Ha Pottery village and offers you a BBQ boat trip on the beautiful river Thu Bon.

  • The tour starts at 14:00 right at the hotel where guests stay in Hoi An (if guests stay far from the town, they should be taken to the town – transfer fee excluded). Guests will be provided a bike and start their cycling journey with an English speaking guide. At every village guests arrive, our experienced guide will help explain the ways that people do things and take care of everyone.

  • The first stop will be the traditional village Kim Bong, where guests will visit those artisans carving the wood to make beautiful statues and furniture. Also, in this area, local men provide an important industry to Hoi An city and the region, it’s boat building and maintenance.

  • Guests will continue to pedal through a vast rice paddy that expands endlessly along the ride before getting across a river and arriving at the sleeping-mat weaving village Duy Vinh. Only guests see the way how hard people here work for a day, guests would know why it’s not easy to preserve this traditional handicraft.

  • Our tour guide then takes guests through the rustic view country road to hit another village of traditional handicraft art work. At Thanh Ha Pottery village, guests have more time to get closer to local people by seeing the technique of producing pottery from clay, learning the stories about generations that got involved into the industry.

  • The total ride of 9 kms then finishes and guests convert to the boat and start cruising along the scenic river Thu Bon before arriving back to Hoi An. On the boat, we prepare some BBQ (food allergies and diets catered) and local homemade fruit wine in order that guests have some fun. While the sun gets to set down the mountains afar, the river becomes more charming with its tranquility and local fishery.

The tour then finishes in the night market of Hoi An at around 17:30. Guests can decide to get back to the hotels or stay in the town.
