Explore some of Hoi An’s most beautiful hidden spots where only a few tourists visit, meeting the locals, sharing their stories and learning about their daily routines, from the back of an electric scooter.
Your trip will start with a drink at the Fusion Lounge in Hoi An town (at around 09.00am for the morning trip or 02.00pm for the afternoon trip), after which you will transfer to Cam Nam island via the Old town. En route you can stop at a shipyard to watch the locals maintaining the fishing boats, and then visit a local family’s graveyard where you will learn about the local traditions when someone passes away. Visit a local shoemaker to experience the ancient tradition of tailoring and shoemaking in Hoi An. Have a snack at a riverside NGO before paying a visit to a painting and lantern making workshop run by the Lifestart Foundation where you can try your hand at making some handicrafts yourselfs to take home as gifts. Continue to drive through the countryside with plenty of photo opportunities of the beautiful rice paddies, money bridges, and grazing buffalos. You will also have the chance to stop at Tra Que village, famous for growing medicinal herbs. Finish the day at An Bang Beach, where you can unwind overlooking the stunning beach with some food & drinks.
