This trip starts right from our office in Hoi An. We ride through the ancient town and along a branch of Thu Bon river head to Thanh Ha pottery village. This village still produces pots, bowls, plates and even tiles used in restoring some of the old building in Hoi An, the traditional way inherited from their ancestors.
From here the ride pushes further into the countryside and the road slowly narrows and turns to a pleasant dirt path. We enjoy one of the most pleasant sections of biking on the trip. Slowly rolling through wide open rice paddies on a long section of single track trail with water buffaloes wallowing in the shallow pools. We pass duck farms, and geen field of peanut and sweet potatoes. You can imagine that Vietnam’s countryside has been like this for generations.
Once arriving at Tra Que Village, we have a chance to learn the traditional farming methods of the locals. It is said that the vegetables here are special because the farmers do not use any pesticides or chemical fertilizer at all. We get to prepare a meal with the produce that is grown here.
Our final stop is Ha Linh lantern factory, where we learn the various steps in producing a traditional Hoi An lantern. We make one of our own as a keepsake.
Finally, we ride about 15 minutes back to Hoi An and end our fantastic journey
