After breakfast at the homestay, a driver and guide will pick you up for a full day tour. You will have the chance to immerse yourself in the tranquility and charm of this sleepy riverside town. From the 16th to 18th centuries Hoi An was a thriving international port frequented by Chinese, Dutch, French, Japanese, Portuguese and Arab traders, who came to trade in the high quality silk which is still produced in the region. Today, Hoi An is a relaxing resort popular with tourists for its eclectic architecture, skilled tailors and numerous cafes. Take a half-day walking tour through the narrow winding streets of the ancient town centre, visiting Chua Ong Pagoda, the Chinese Assembly Hall, the 200-year old Tam Ky ancestral house and the famous Japanese Bridge.
Savour lunch of your choice and budget, then get on your bike to ride to the Bay Mau Coconut Village, Cam Thanh, which is an important historical relic as well as a craft village where many houses are built from coconut leaves. Taste a fresh coconut while walking through the craft village and see special methods for making hundreds of things from coconuts. After that, you will ride in a basket boat deeper into the coconut forest, and see the spectacular technique farmers use with their boat. Fishing from a basket boat is not very easy, however, it will be so memorable if you catch fish or crab from this vast coconut area! Take the boat on Thu Bon river for your journey back to your hotel.
