A back to basics tour to explore the real rural south of Hoi An and to experience the local daily activities as well as having the chance to mingle with the locals. You will leave a deeper understanding of rural life and culture in Central Vietnam.
Cruising along the Thu Bon river, we will head towards Cua Dai estuary. On arrival at Duy Hai Fish market, the first thing you will notice is just how busy a real working market is. As we stroll around marveling at the array of seafood on offer we will also have the opportunity to chat with locals to learn about their lives and daily routines.
Our next stop is the traditional craft village of Cua Khe, the home to “nuoc mam” (fish sauce) from this region. Cua Khe has existed for hundreds of years with the main products of the craft village being anchovy fish sauce and dried fish products for export. Fish sauce is made from anchovies and salt and left to ferment for several months.
Having seen what the sea has to offer we now move on to see what the land has to offer by visiting the Distillery of Indochina. Which has chosen to settle in the South of Hoi An not just because of the high quality of the local groundwater but because of its unique sugar cane variety which is not only renowned for its quality but also aromatic properties.
Back on the rural track, we head off to explore the countryside and hidden villages, to really get into the nitty gritty of local life... We will take a tour around the rice and sweet potato fields and see the farmers preparing and fertilizing the land. Here we will discover everyday working the land.
Our last stop will be to visit a local house where you can explore a bird nest’s cave and enjoy the unique cuisine.
