Explore the roads less travelled
Our tours starts at the Kong's Adventures shop located at 334 Nguyen Duy Hieu Street.
Our tour begins by exploring the hidden passageways and winding alleyways of Hoi An, stopping to photograph the iconic Japanese bridge.
Crossing first the canal bridge near the night market we continue to the new metal bike bridge connecting Hoi An proper and its southern villages. Not far from the bridge we visit a local family making Banh Dap using the traditional method. These small savoury rice flour bowls are a common breakfast staple in the countryside. We continue riding to one of Hoi An's most beautiful villages, stopping at a family home to learn about the tradition of family chapels. Our host is nearly 90 and fought in the American war. Next, we pedal past rice fields and vegetable farms along small canals and waterways towards a boat building site. Fishing is still the lifeblood of the province and the construction of these boat-works is quite amazing to witness and photograph.
Artisans & the Local Ferry
The roads narrow again to concrete paths and our final stops include a traditional mat weaving shop and a family distillery where rice wine has been produced in the same manner for generations. If the timing is right, we'll also have an opportunity to see families gathering to clean the fishing nets between journeys at sea. It's a short ride from here to where we 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 Grasshopper shop.
Your Comfort En-Route
Fresh fruit and cold water are served along the way. There's a stop for coffee or tea, too. Hoi An Countryside has been carefully crafted to offer a complete experience of the cityscape, the countryside and the people who call Hoi An and Quang Nam Province home. We finish the ride aboard a small ferry for the short transfer back to Hoi An. There's time to relax in our shop off the bike while enjoying a complimentary drink from our ice-cold fridge. A nice end to a great day out on a bike in Hoi An. Enjoy lunch at local family .The tour concludes at approximately 14:00 PM.
