The Experience

Want to get away? Let's get out of town and head to our secret waterfall for a truly local adventure. This experience includes a ride through the beautiful countryside where you catch a glimpse of the local life in the Quang Nam province and grab a few tasty local bites.

Detailed itinerary

7:30 AM for Motorcycle/ 8:00 AM for Private Car

Our adventure will begin early in the morning so we can enjoy the cool breeze as we make our way through the town on the way to the villages along the river. We will stop by one for a short while and interact with the locals and learn how to make the traditional Hoi An lanterns you see adorning the alleyways. You will get to make one for yourself!

After that we will head to another village that has been around for 500 years, specializing in pottery. After that, along the way to the waterfall, we will stop at a local market to pick up some delicious Vietnamese fruits to prepare for our picnic. We will enjoy these as we swim in the waterfall...

To get to the waterfall, we'll be doing a little bit of hiking so make sure to put on comfy shoes! And of course, don’t forget your swimwear!

After the waterfall, we'll enjoy a scrumptious home-cooked meal at the bottom of the hill prepared by a local family as we enjoy our scenery and chat and laugh.

It's a simple no-frill get-down-adventure and we'll get you back at your accommodation by 4:00 PM.


Although the private car option is available, we recommend taking the motorcycle option as we think it is the best way to experience our Vietnamese culture. On a bike, we can easily stop whenever and wherever you want. The freedom is incomparable to anything else you've ever experienced.

For those with back problems or family with elderly or young children, then we recommend the private car option. Although, we once had a courageous 6-year old opting for the motorcycle option and ended up having an awesome time and loving every bit of the adventure!

We absolutely loved our trip to the Secret Waterfall with TinTin and Tri. The day lasted around 10 hours and we managed to pack so much into it! We started off on two motorbikes, Tri driving my boyfriend and TinTin driving me - it was so nice to be in such a small group.

Our first stop was the lantern factory where we learnt how lanterns were made and even made our own which we were allowed to keep. We then went on to the pottery village where again, we made our own small vases. Afterwards we headed to a local market to pick the fruit and vegetables we wanted to eat later on in the day. It was really nice to be able to have conversations with the locals in the market through Tri and TinTin. We picked our fruit and vegetables and ate some of the foods being sold at the market including sweet soup (Chè Đậu Đen) which I loved - I wish I could have some now! :(

After the market we headed off to the waterfall which involved a short climb (I didn't have any trainers and my sandals were fine). The waterfall is beautiful! We drank beer and ate fruit in the waterfall and took lots and lots of photos. It was amazing. After a couple of hours we headed back down and were treated to a feast of food! We ate so much we had to have a nap in the hammocks after, it was so peaceful.

On our way back to the hotel we made a few stops to take photos - Tri and TinTin were happy to stop anywhere we asked. One of our stops was to take photos of a gorgeous rice paddy and Tri and TinTin managed to encourage the two ladies to let us help them separate the grains from the stalks, which was great fun and another of our stops was to play Vietnamese pool (carom billiards) and of course a bit of karaoke ;)

We were knackered after such a busy day, but it was amazing. Tri and TinTin shared so much knowledge, it was such a great trip. If you're considering booking, do it! It over-exceeded our expectations by a million!! Oh and TinTin is great with a camera :)

TinTin and Thinh are amazing people. Explored the Hoi An area and visited some of the local trades around the area. The market was an insight to the day to day lives of the Hoi An people, then it was a journey to the hills where we explored the vast land and beautiful sights. There were water buffalo's and greenery, when we reached the top we went for a dip in the water where there was the waterfall. If your into experiencing a very local and homely experience Tin Tin is the guy to go to. He is an old friend, someone that is adventurist and makes the experience memorial one. Oh by the way the home cook meal is Amazing. So bring along your tummies cause you will have a food coma.
