What You'll Do

Grasshopper’s countryside cycling tour lasts for around five hours, and you’ll cover 21 kilometres.  You’ll visit Cam Kim Island to see a boatyard, rice cracker making, a family temple, mat weaving, rice wine making, and stop for a drink and fruit at a cafe.

Escape the city as you cycle tour the alleyways, waterways and village paths of Hoi An and its surroundings on a bicycle adventure tour that offers the best of history, local village life and scenic countryside. A unique, memorable and active way to enjoy your visit to Hoi An. Pedal from the historic district across the river and through the beautiful small villages and adjacent rural scenery just beyond the crowded tourist zone.

The half-day cycling itinerary will immerse you in the culture, history, and commerce of Hoi An on a tour designed for all ages, families and kids. The scenery is sublimely rural and the experience authentically Vietnamese. Ride back in time, only a stone’s throw from the city to the Hoi An that locals know. Take in village scenes, visit artisans, local coffee shops, fishing ports, simple foods, and discover religious traditions with an emphasis on family life.

Countryside Exploration

Crossing first the canal bridge near the night market you continue to the new metal bike bridge connecting Hoi An proper and its southern villages. Not far from the bridge you will visit a local family making Banh Dap using the traditional method. These small savoury rice flour bowls are a common breakfast staple in the countryside. You continue riding to one of Hoi An's most beautiful villages, stopping at a family home to learn about the tradition of family chapels. Our host is nearly 90 and fought in the American war. Next...

Crossing first the canal bridge near the night market you continue to the new metal bike bridge connecting Hoi An proper and its southern villages.

You continue riding to one of Hoi An’s most beautiful villages, stopping at a family home to learn about the tradition of family chapels. Our host is nearly 90 and fought in the American war. Next, you pedal past rice fields and vegetable farms along small canals and waterways towards a boat building site. Fishing is still the lifeblood of the province and the construction of these boat-works is quite amazing to witness and photograph.

Artisans & the Local Ferry

The roads narrow again to concrete paths and your final stops include a traditional mat weaving shop and a family distillery where rice wine has been produced in the same manner for generations. If the timing is right, you'll also have an opportunity to see families gathering to clean the fishing nets between journeys at sea. It's a short ride from here to where you board a local ferry for a trip back to town. Have your cameras ready for great views of the Hoi An waterfront. Once dockside, it's a short 5 minutes ride through alleyways back to the Grasshopper shop.
