Begin this Danang day trip with a pick up from the hotel at approximately 8am by minivan. Transfer into the peaceful countryside located outside the glittering ‘city by the sea’. On arrival at the village, start exploring the main market of the area. Produce from the local farmers is traded here with some farmers coming in from as far as 10 km away.
After spending time at the low key rural market, it's time to start cycling. Begin with a ride through the rice paddy fields to arrive at a large pagoda by the river. A church can be seen on the other side of the river bank, highlighting the dynamics of religion in Vietnam. Stop at an old temple before riding to the nearby fields, where pumpkin, green beans and sugarcane are normally grown. Depending on the season, different produce may be grown and different activities will be in process.
Cycle along vast agricultural fields and small peaceful villages before reaching Tuy Loan Ancient house, which is still largely untouched by tourism. Become immersed in the serenity of the garden while enjoying some. Resume your cycling adventure to the house of a friendly grandma who has lived here for her entire life, along with 6 4 generations of their family, witnessing the passage of time and some of the significant changes that have occurred through the decades spanning French rule, the American War, the ‘reunification period’ and now Vietnam’s transition to a free economy and modern society. A local style lunch is served in her shaded front yard.
After lunch, cycle a short distance to the pick-up point where the vehicle will be waiting to head back towards the hotel. (L)
