Biking Near Hoi An

Bike, Boat, and BBQ Hoi An
Hoi An is a shopping town - but what if you aren't a shopper? Want to get away from all of the aggressive vendors in Hoi An -then ride away into the countryside of Cam Thanh villages! My niece and I loved Hoi An but were ready to get out into the country and open space - and most importantly we wanted to see how the locals lived.

Our guide Thinh led us through the back roads outside of Hoi An to see various farming techniques, villages, and show us what rural life was like. After about an 90 minutes of biking, we rode to riverbank and put our bikes on a little boat to be whisked away to see another part of life that is important in Hoi An - the river life.

We stopped at an island and Thinh and the boat driver made a supurb BBQ as we watched the sun set. The afternoon gave us a chance to see a different side to the heavily touristed but lovely town of Hoi An!

We were bicycling through a village outside of Hoi An...and passed over a bridge..I couldn't resist river tributaries separating vast fields of green ..but most iconically...was lucky enough to observe a villager standing in his canoe and attempting to maneuver through a flock of ducks.

There are many iconic images that come to mind when I envisioned going to Vietnam...the water buffalo, lantern lined streets, street markets boasting the flesh of anything living in the nearby area, fruit and vegetables of all hues of the rainbow, rice paddies in tiered land, women wearing straw conical hats carrying goods on their shoulder poles, and certainly...had to add this one to the list.
