Overview

Discover the strong heritage of Vietnamese agriculture on the Hoi An Half Day Agricultural Tour leaving in either the morning or the afternoon for half a day in the verdant countryside around Hoi An. The farms and fisheries around Hoi An were its historic lifeblood, fueling the rapid trade of the port town and the many millions of people who have lived and worked here for generations.

The village of Cam Thanh was once an important refuge for people during the American War, but is now an abundant land of rice and nipa palm, creating a scene of unrestricted nature. Flat village roads make perfect conditions for cycling, so we provide bicycles for the most authentic exploration of this wonderful rural enclave. This is followed by a trip to Phuoc Hai, a fishing village where traditional basket boats roam in search of schools of fish and groups of crab. The Day Trip from Hoi An offers you the chance to try the idyllic life of a Vietnamese farmer and fisherman as we work with rice and fish in this unique hands-on experience.

After this, we head to Phuoc Hai Fishing Village and explore another side of Vietnam's strong agricultural traditions, fishing. We join fishermen on the river at Phuoc Hai, watching them cast their traditional chai nets into the water before having a go ourselves at pulling up a good haul of fish. 

We continue to a jungle of lush coconut trees, relaxing into a basket boat ride down the river and heading out onto land to learn of the local people’s relationship with their fertile land. We catch crab around the shallow waters before boarding a new boat and enjoying a delectable lunch while cruising down the river.
