Ninh Binh countryside day trip : Farming, Fishing and Bike Tour

8.00am : Meet your tour guide in the morning in the hotel. Take a bike ride through the lush landscape of rural Ninh Binh (If you are not good at bike ride, please swap to motorbike ride with a driver “XE OM” services with $8 extra). Board a sampan ride along Thung Nang along gentle stream and senic cave for 1.5 hour

Back to the pier, take 1 hour walk to local family living in remote village near mountainous area . You’ll interact and learn more about their daily lives.

They are old couple who has been living in the region for years. Then  Later on your guide will take you through how to maintain a vegetable garden full of local produce. Take your turn at turning the soil and caring for the vegetables in preparation for selling to the market.

Once you have mastered the art of gardening, we will then turn our hand to fishing like a local. Using gear that locals have been using for generations, see if you too can catch a few fishes before learning how to cook your own lunch like a local. In the late afternoon, relax on a cart and then learn the art of embroidery done in the traditional style. The tour end in Tam Coc
