    HOI AN - Escape Hoi An tour (B/L)

     08.00 Your guide will take you to the small villages in the beautiful surrounding countryside. The most vibrant time of the day as hoards of children set off for school and villagers to the market, bikes and trailers laden with their daily wares.

     
    09.00 Head across the new Cua Dai bridge with its spectacular views of Hoi An and surrounds, and out to sea to the Cham Islands head for Duy Hai fishing hamlet, arriving as the small fishing boats return with their daily catch. Then spend a couple of hours cycling and exploring, stopping to take a tour of the raucous Noi Rang market.
     
    11.00 Take a break to sample ‘My Quang’, a regional noodle dish that originates in Quang Nam, the province that is home to Hoi An. While you enjoy the dish, the villagers return to their family houses for lunch and silence descends upon the village.
     
    11.30 Back on our bikes for a leisurely 45 minute ride to the floating restaurant, where you will have a delicious lunch of freshly caught seafood.
     
    13.15 Back on the bikes. Arrive in Kim Bong craft village as the carpenters return to work from their siesta. Enjoy a stunning ride through lush countryside and tracks lined by river coconut palms, with the gentle breeze sweeping in off the river.

We then take in a visit to the ship building yard giving you an insight in to the importance of these trades in an area dependent upon fishing as a livelihood.
