The Experience

Escape momentarily from the busy city life, and see Hoi An through a different perspective as you explore around the countryside on a bicycle and later, paddle along the De Vong river on a wooden sampan.

Your journey will be as authentic as it gets. Not only will you get to interact with local farmers and local people, and learn about their lives, but you will also get to do some farming yourself! Come experience the real beauty of Hoi An on this fun, adventurous and activity-filled tour!

Detailed itinerary

8:00 AM - 11:30 AM / 3:00 PM - 7:00 PM

You can opt for either the morning tour which begins at 08:00 AM and ends at 11:30 AM or the afternoon tour that lasts from 3:00 PM - 7:00 PM.

You will be picked up by our guides at your accommodation and taken to the green, clean and picturesque Tra Que vegetable village where most of the vegetables and herbs you find in dishes served throughout Hoi An are grown. Here you can get your farming skills on and pick your own veggies - which will later be used for lunch/dinner. Don’t be afraid to get your hands muddy!

You will then get on a bicycle and ride through this tranquil village, past rice paddies, gardens and ponds and watch as the local farmers cultivate, care for and harvest their produce. Not only that, on beautiful days, there will be lots of water buffaloes lounging about in the mud and if you’re feeling adventurous enough, you can even try ride one. The photo opportunities will be endless.

Next, after you have the opportunity to experience riding a water buffalo, you get to paddle a sampan (wooden fishing boat) along De Vong river. Before your meal, you will make one last stop at a Japanese graveyard and learn about the historical connection between Hoi An and Japan.

Using the ingredients we collected throughout the tour for lunch/dinner, you will get to sit down with a lovely local family, all the while chatting about what rural life is like, learning about their lifestyles, traditions and etiquette. By 11:30 AM / 7:00 PM, we will have you back to your accommodation safely. Not only will you have amazing memories and photographs to take back home, but your tummy will be satisfied too!


Drinks, and a delicious and healthy local lunch/dinner are included.

traumhafter Ausflug durch schöne Landschaft. Unser Guide Vi hat uns mit ihrer fröhlichen und offenen Art sofort begeistert. Wir haben sehr viel über Land & Leute erfahren können. Auf den Gemüsefeldern durften wir einem Gärtner bei seiner Arbeit unterstützen. Auch das gemeinsame Abendessen bei einer vietnamischen Famile war hervorragend. Danke für die tollen Eindrücke und Fotos ;-)

I saw OneTrip because I follow The Best Food Review Show ever on YouTube. This was my last solo tour led by Vu for a village tour of Hoi An. Vi picked me up from the homestay in a scooter and immediately I was charmed by how sweet and bubbly she was. We had so much fun walking around the veggie farm, hard at work planting and watering veggies, playing with a water buffalo, boating at sunset, and wrapping up with an amazing locally home cooked meal. The tour was amazing and I highly recommend it. Vi made it especially special. She was my cheerleader, my photographer, my hype woman, and just a lovely person to be around. Go. on. this. tour.

We enjoyed the Farm Tour at Tra Que Village on the 18th April 2019. My guide was Coco. She speaks very good English, friendly and very knowledgeable. We enjoyed the time spent, cycling and activities around the farm. Then to the fishing village and finally enjoyed the scrupmtious meal prepared by the locals.. I must say this is one of the highlights for my trip in Hoi An... The farm is really tranquil and feel so closed to nature... I highly recommend this tour!
