What to Expect
After your guide meets you at your hotel you’ll head off on a half-day tour by bicycle, or mini-van if you prefer, to explore the rice paddy fields in the countryside surrounding Hoi An.

Rice is an important staple in the diet of most Asians, and you may have already seen rice growing in paddy fields in this part of the world. On this excursion you’ll get to know how the rice is cultivated.

Meet local farmers, learn about the local farming life, and enjoy a cup of tea with farmers in a rice paddy field. You’ll be given traditional farming clothing to change into before getting into the muddy rice field.

Your tour guide will explain the process of growing rice before you take part. Learn how water buffalo are used to plow the fields and about the agricultural water system and even have a go riding one on a small pond at the farm.

Try your hand at transplanting young wet rice in the paddy field, and enjoy riding a water buffalo through a small pond at a rice farm. Join a local farming family for a meal in their home before heading back to Hoi An.

Morning and afternoon departures are available.
