Full description
Your jeep and guide will pick you up from your hotel at 14:00 to depart for the short ride through the countryside on the way to Tra Que village, famous for its fresh local herbs and vegetables. Your local village host will provide you with a cooking demonstration and show you some of the local specialties including how to make rice paper, ban xeo and tam huu local spring roll. Before setting off on your tour around the village, take time to relax and enjoy a traditional foot massage in the fragrant garden. On the village tour, enjoy the nurseries and herb gardens abundant with bird’s-eye chilli, lemongrass, basil, coriander and spring onions that are all thriving in the rich soil. Jump right in and see how the plots are planted, tended and watered with the guidance of local family farmers.

In the afternoon, get back into the jeep and make your way through the countryside, bound for a local dock, where your chic boat will be waiting. The chic boat is a traditional Vietnamese fishing vessel that has been refurbished to the highest standards, while maintaining its traditional feel. Board the boat just as the sun begins to set for the day. Gently cruise up the Thu Bon River to a local fishing village and enjoy the river culture, bird life, local farming and the other daily activities of the local people. The people in the fishing village will be busy preparing for the evening’s fishing trip in the ocean and the river will be a hive of activity as the boats are stocked and primed.

On the boat, take time to relax and enjoy a delicious selection of finger food of sautéed shrimp with salt, calamari skewers, pork skewers accompanied by drinks such as smoothies, juices or local beer. The sun setting in the sky completes the perfect experience and casts an incredible orange glow over the mountain ranges, rice paddies and waterways. It will be a stunning way to finish your excursion on the beautiful Thu Bon River. Return to the dock in Hoi An amidst the setting sun and disembark at the dock around 18:00 upon which your jeep will return you to your hotel.
