Meet your guide early this morning at your Hoi An accommodation and begin the journey to the traditional fishing village of Van Lang and the coconut forest of Bay Mau. You will be delighted at the scenery that unfolds before your eyes, including beautiful mangroves, waterways and traditional homes sheltering under coconut leaves. This area was known as a safe haven in the Vietnam War, and is now known for its provision of seafood.

Mid-morning we will make a stop at the Ba Le area market and tour the area, including its rice paddies and local school. On arrival in the village you will be greeted by a local family by the riverside, from where you will take a fascinating journey in little basket boats to learn how to fish in the water with the locals.

One you have put your feet back on dry land you will cycle onward through rice paddies on a journey they is far from the well-trodden tourist routes until you reach Tra Que vegetable village. This farming settlement has about 150 farmers who grow a wide selection of herbs, vegetables and other crops. The area produces over 8 tone of vegetables annually, and all are organically grown with no harmful pesticides or insecticides.

Just before lunch we had back to the village where a local family will meet you and host you with some traditional refreshing drinks, before you are free to take a short walk along the village and chat to the locals who are going about their daily lives.

You will then learn a bit more from the locals about how they grow their vegetables, and you may be able to help out a few locals as they work in their gardens, preparing the soil for sowing, or watering the crops.

Finally it is lunch time, and you will take a short lesson in cookery. Try your hand at making some delicious spring rolls known locally as Tam Huu, and the favorite Xeo pancakes. Then, enjoy the fruits of your labor as you sit down and eat your creations.

After your midday meal you will receive a relaxing foot spa, prepared with local herbs. Use the time to relax before you begin the journey to your hotel, arriving late afternoon when the tour ends.
