Hoi An Eco Tour Program
In the morning, we will come and meet you up at the hotel and then we start our Half Day Hoi An Eco Tour. First, we will ride our bikes to Tra Que vegetables village. Thus, this is a rustic place and organic herbs village where many different herbs are grown such as coriander, spring onion, lettuce, mints ect. That’s why the village is so green and fresh as the people here just use seaweed and organic fertilizer to feed the plants. Although the people work very hard but you will realize their smiling faces even they work under hot weather.
On arrival at this village, we will wander around and see many kinds of vegetables as well as having a talk with local farmers to better know their farming life. By the way, they are helpful to tell you different steps in growing herbs and vegetables. Especially, you can start learning how to grow, hoe the soil and put seaweed and water the garden and you will have lovely time with them.
To move on our Hoi An Eco Tour, we will continue our biking tour through some small lanes of Hoi An’s countryside and make some pictures of shrimp and fish farms on the way. Possibly, you can rest in a while to grab some beautiful photos of green paddy fields. Upon your request, you can take photograph of water buffaloes bathing in the mud and have a buffalo ride if you want. Certainly, you can interact with a young guy to understand more of his farming culture.
Next, we will cycle to Cam Thanh water coconut forest. At arriving, you can sit a while and watch people pedalling their round boats going up and down the river. The tour guide then tells you about the war here in 1960′ when the Viet Cong used it as a hiding place and also a revolutionary center for the village people. Following that is a basket boat ride (coracle boat) going inside the forest where the boat lady will catch some little purple crabs for fun. Then by the way, she will make some souvenirs of watches, hats, rings out of coconut leaves. The next part is to enjoy the guy spinning around with his basket boat. And you take a chance to film the man casting fishing net into the river to catch some little fish.
Later on, you board a boat to enjoy boat cruise along the Thu Bon river to know about fishing life of the local people. On the way, if seeing fishermen, you take some of pretty pictures.
