Itinerary

Meet at the Grasshopper's Shop

Our tour starts at the Grasshopper shop located up a small alleyway off Hai Ba Trung Street at 8 am.

Ancient District

Our ride begins by exploring the hidden passageways and winding alleyways of UNESCO World Heritage Old Hoi An, stopping to photograph the iconic Japanese bridge.

Countryside Exploration

After crossing first the canal bridge near the night market, we continue pedaling 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 savory 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 so he has plenty of stories for us! This is the kind of authentic connection we seek to provide on our tours. 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 boats is quite amazing to witness and photograph.

Artisans and Traditional Lunch

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.

A delicious homemade lunch of Hoi An specialties will be served at a local house. After fueling up, we will cycle along the riverside and board the kayaks.

Kayaking on the Thu Bon River

Enjoy a paddle past water-coconut plantations, shrimp farms and little fishing hamlets. If you’re lucky, you can see the fishermen emptying their nets, which is a spectacular sight. On the way, we will make a stop at one of the little islands to rest and enjoy the views.

We will arrive at the Cam Thanh area of Hoi An, from where our minivan will bring you back to the hotel by 2:30 pm.

The day’s ride is mostly on small alleyways, quiet lanes, and flat tracks, all with no hills in sight. Beginner riders should take care while cycling short sections on small dirt trails.
