We will start the journey with a discovery of the countryside, we will travel by bicycle down the green, quiet roads. Take notice of the green bamboo, areca and tea plants surrounding the paths as you ride along. The tour guide will give you some interesting information about the local plants, herbs and vegetables when visiting an organic vegetable garden where farmers use the seaweed as natural fertiliser instead of chemicals and spray their vegetables with natural products such as ginger, chili and garlic instead of chemical pesticides. Then, we will stop to meet a local family who will show you how to make colorful sleeping mats, rice noodles. We then visit Kim Bong Carpentry Village, founded in the XVII century, a traditional handicraft village famous not only in Hoi An, Quang Nam but also in the whole Central of Vietnam.
