Connect more deeply to central Vietnam’s pulsating heartland with our exclusive activities and experiences. From insightful tours of sacred sites to vivid immersions into the local way of life, let our expert guides reveal the best of the country’s vibrant culture and natural wonders.
Hoi An Foodie Vespa Adventure
- Hop on a vintage Vespa and head right to the heart of the vibrant Hoi An dining scene to sample regional dishes and Vietnamese cuisine at places frequented by those in the know. Start the night in style with cocktails on the beach at sunset before riding pillion to town for a taste of iconic white rose dumplings. Then, weave your way to a lantern-lit islet where a sampan boat awaits to float you slowly through the ancient town. Back on dry land, further culinary adventures beckon in the form of local specialities in lively eateries before an exhilarating night ride back to your Nam Hai base.
Sunrise Fish Market
- Watch an ancient tradition played out as the first rays of light illuminate the horizon of the Cua Dai Sea – a sight in itself worthy of the early start. Local Hoi An fishermen steer boats loaded with fish, crabs, shrimps and shellfish back to shore after a long night on the water. At the dock, their families gather the catch ready for sale at the bustling Hoi An market. Join our guide aboard an eco-tour boat for insight into this daily ritual. Try your hand at paddling on one of the unusual bamboo basket boats traditional to the area before jumping back aboard the tour boat for a fisherman’s breakfast.
Fishing Village and Basket Boat
- Launch yourself into lively local life with this palm paradise tour. Cruise the Cua Dai River on an eco-tour boa into the heart of a fishing village to learn traditional secrets direct from the masters. Practice your paddle in a unique bamboo basket boat – not as easy as it looks – before taking part in a basket boat race. On waterways flanked by abundant coconut palms and bathed in dappled sunshine, learn about the vivid history of recent decades before boarding the tour boat for an authentic Vietnamese lunch.
Wet Rice Farm Culture
- Join our skilled guide and immerse yourself with a true breath of fresh air. Feel the wind in your hair as you weave your bicycle through the rice paddies to take tea with a farmer. Don traditional clothing to join him in the field and learn the art of rice cultivation from ploughing and transplanting to harvesting. After a short ride astride a gentle water buffalo, you’ll cap off the experience embraced by the warmth of Vietnamese hospitality as you join the farmer and his family for a meal.
