From here your gentle  cycle tour takes you on the  short  but  beautiful  ride through lush farm land, rice fields and  small villages to the village of Cam Thanh. We stop  along the  way to visit local villagers and  see how they use their surrounding resources to craft a living using age old methods.

    10.00      Take  a trip along  the  winding  river by coracle  (basket)  boat.  A local family and guide will take you on a journey through the untouched waterways,  fringed by river coconut palms. Take the opportunity to see a local fisherman  dredge  the river bed in search of river snails.

    12.00       Relax and enjoy a traditional herbal foot massage  in the garden.

    12.45      Join in with a cookery class hosted  by a local family.

Sit back and enjoy your culinary creations at the family table overlooking the locals tending  their land.
