Begining with meet our Aodai tour guide and driver at your hotel. We will lead you to our location to choose traditional Vietnamese clothes ( Áo Dài) for you. We hope you will enjoy the trip today with the new uniform.

From the ancient town of Hoi An, let travel somewhere peaceful and be captivated by the allure of local life in the countryside. Entering into a rural adventure with your Aodai guide as they give you an in-depth tour around Hoi An’s local craft villages.

Firstly, Discovering how to make your own ceramic products from seasoned artisans and craftsmen at the Thanh Ha Pottery Village!

*.Thanh Ha Pottery Village:

Thanh Ha pottery products are not enamelled and heated by a traditional wood kiln so they have different beautiful colours of yellow, red, red brick, brown, pink and black.

Inside you can find some local homes and artisan shops.  We will sit and watch the locals making some pottery using traditional methods, imagine one lady crouched low on the floor whilst another uses their foot to power the spin of the pottery wheel.  After the demonstration , it’s your turn to create your product with your own ways. Let learn and practice how to make tea cup or vase with clay. You can write down your name on product on which you have made for fun.

You can keep your products and buy some kind of souvenirs. They will be great gifts to you friends and your family. Let go around and take awesome picture with Ao dai clothes.

*.Tra Que Village:

Moving to Tra Que Village surrounded by lush green fields and gardens. Learn how to farm and harvest fresh vegetables like a local for a truly immersive rural experience. We take you along scenic paths across a nature reserve and through picturesque old villages. Don’t forget your camera as the views are spectacular, especially as you go through green pastures spreading as far as the eye can see. Visiting Tra Que Village, you will be fascinated by watching the farming procedures of local farmers, including: raking the ground, sowing, watering, picking vegetables and many other activities which are rarely seen in modern daily life. Moreover, tourists can listen to our local Ao dai guide talking about organic farming techniques and try their hand at actual farming. The farmers don’t use chemical or fertilizers but a kind of algae found only in a lagoon in Tra Que. Thanks to this technique, Tra Que herbs and veggies are widely recognized for their quality, safety and especially outstanding taste and flavor. Besides, you also have chance to taste some kinds of veggies at this farm. Be local, be natural!

*.Cam Thanh Coconut Village:

When people mention to Hoian, we can not miss Cam Thanh Coconut Village. During Vietnam War, the village acted as a shelter for local people and solders hiding. On the way you also can see rice fields, corn fields, a forest of water palm, shrimp and crab farms and then take a rest at a local family, enjoying welcome drink with local tea. Travelling to Cam Thanh water coconut village, you can take a boat on the canal to visit the water coconut and experience local like activities. Nevertheless, the boat cannot go deeper into the water coconut jungle. Because of that, we would recommend you go on a bamboo basket boat. That way would be much more convenient as well as having a chance for you to experience a simple life of people living in the river area where they almost use bamboo basket as the main way of transportation and you also learn to catch the fish by throwing fishing net and experience local fishermen for basket boat riding and demonstrating.

Then we have light lunch with local foods( Cao Lau-Noodles) and Vietnamese ice coffee for a rest before we take a walking tour in Hoi An town to explore these places in Hoi An old town.
