Hoi An: Morning Countryside Tour by Bike

1. Hoi An: Morning Countryside Tour by Bike

Morning is the ideal time to explore the hidden passageways and winding alleys of Hoi An. Meet at the local tour provider's shop at #21 Hai Ba Trung Street. Walk 20 meters up the small alleyway and you’ll see it on your left behind the green gates. Your guide will fit your bike, give a safety briefing and provide an overview of the tour. Have the chance to photograph the iconic Japanese Bridge in the historic district. Crossing the canal bridge first near the night market, continue to the new metal bike bridge connecting Hoi An proper and its southern villages of Quang Nam Province. Not far from the bridge, visit a local family making Banh Beo using the traditional method. These small, savory rice flour bowls are a common breakfast staple in the countryside. Continue riding to one of Hoi An's most beautiful villages, stopping at a family home to learn about the tradition of family chapels. Your host is nearly 90-years-old and vividly remembers his experiences during the American War. Pedal past rice fields and vegetable farms along small canals and waterways towards a wooden boat building site. Fishing is still the lifeblood of the province and the construction of these ships is quite amazing to witness and photograph. If the timing is right, you'll also see families gathering to clean fishing nets between journeys at sea. The roads narrow again to concrete paths and your final stops will include a traditional mat weaving shop and a family distillery, where rice wine has been produced in the same manner for generations. Of course, samples for a tasting will be provided. A short ride from here, you will board a local ferry for a trip back to town. Have your cameras ready for great views of the Hoi An waterfront. Once dockside, it's a short 5 minute ride through alleyways back to the local tour provider's shop.

The excursion was well organized. We went directly to the market in Hoi An, bought the ingredients together and then took the minibus to the basket boat ride. The basket boat ride was relatively unspectacular and the drivers were very keen on tips. At the end you could go fishing for crabs, that was really fun! The highlight, however, was the cooking class itself. We cooked a 4-course meal. All steps were explained well and in detail. In the end we were stuffed and very happy about this experience. Cooking course gladly again. You can save yourself a basket boat trip.

The boat ride was a fun way to start the day. It was very cute how the lady made us shrimp and flower finger rings out of palm trees. Then we started our cooking class. Lilly was very friendly and explained it in a simple way. Cooking the rice pancake was a bit scary because of the flames, but Lilly was always on hand to help.

Very authentic street food tour in Hoi An. Country typical food not for wimps. Flora was really great and didn't leave out any answer. With her warm manner, she gently guided us through the culinary world of Vietnam and Hoi An.

The weather was atrocious but the tour went ahead anyways and we and our guide made the most of it. He even ended us taking us out for a few drinks after in the locals spot

Bong is amazing!! She guided our family through the streets and alleyways of Hoi An and gave us an experience we will never forget!!
