The Experience

Get off the beaten track on this countryside adventure. On the back of a vintage Vespa, escape the hustle and bustle of old town and see the other side of Hoi An. Experience what life is really like for the locals as we cruise through lush ride paddies, sleepy villages, and farmlands that are spread out over a few connecting islands. Meet with a few hardworking families and gain insight into true Vietnamese culture, learning more about the crafts that earn them a humble living. Culture, breathtaking scenery and fresh country air - the perfect laid-back adventure!

Detailed itinerary

8:00 AM - 1:30 PM

We'll start our journey from Café Zoom in Hoi An, where you'll hop onto a vintage Vespa and head towards Cam Kim island. Catch a breath of fresh air as we cruise along the peaceful river banks towards the countryside.

Our first destination is a 200-year-old Ancestral House, followed by a stop at a boatbuilders yard where you can see how traditional style boats are still being built. Sit back and relax as we head down the road less traveled through rural island villages, where you'll see locals hard at work in the rice paddies and farmlands.

A highlight of the day's adventures is when we stop to meet with local families! Get local insight into mat weaving, farming and learn more about the ancient art of making the famous Banh Dap rice crackers - a perfect snack before our next stop.

Since Vietnam is famous for its coffee, our trip wouldn't be complete without a lesson in coffee roasting and trying the local drip-coffee. It's time to jump back on the bikes and fly past Casuarina Pine & Cashew Nut Trees as we head towards the Thu Bon river mouth over the new bridge with its breathtaking views of Hoi An. Cam Tanh water coconut village is the perfect tropical setting for a delicious local lunch, our last stop on this countryside adventure before we drop you off at your hotel.

We went on the Hoi An countryside adventure with Ben and Quoc and thoroughly enjoyed the trip. The drivers were great and Ben was very knowledgeable and funny and made the trip interesting. I was a bit nervous at first but Ben made me feel at ease and was very helpful. We had lots of stops which gave us a great insight to local life. We stopped for coffee, had a go at weaving bed mats, saw how rice wine was made and tasted Also had a go at making rice noodles and enjoyed lunch at a local home with a very friendly lady Highly recommended to other travellers

Leo and Chuong were excellent, fun, knowledgeable, and safe drivers on our adventure. They always made us feel secure and we learned a lot about life and culture in the countryside. Highest recommendation!!

We had a fabulous day out on the Countryside and Islands tour with Bean, Luc and Tuan.We had previously enjoyed one of their trips in Saigon several years ago and this was totally different but equally as good. The information given was really clear and due to the numerous things we saw / visited we felt as though the tour had been a full day rather than a half. a really great tour and one of our highlights of our trip to Asia this summer. Thanks guys , i fully recommend this !!!
