Today’s tour begins at 08:00 with a 15 minutes’ drive from Hoi An Ancient Town to Cua Dai Estuary. Upon arrival at Duy Hai Fishing Village, enjoy the hustle of morning fish market and then visit a family-runfish sauce workshop under the guidance of the owner to learn about this essential ingredient in Vietnamese cuisine. Get on boat and go upstream the “Mother River”- Thu Bon to Duy Vinh village, well-known for traditional weaving sedge mat. This land was created by three Alluvium Rivers such as Thu Bon, Truong Giang and Ly Ly so the sedge mat is easy to plant and provide high productivity. Your journey is passing by a shrimp and duck farm to get a glimpse about agriculture river life.
Depending on the season (from Feb to Apr and from Jul to Sep), you may see golden paddy fields during harvest season or green groves of jute along the banks of the Thu Bon River. Upon arrival at Ban Thach Mat Village, where abundant sources of raw rush used to weave mats have allowed the villagers to develop their own handicraft and improve their lives for 400 years and start cycling to explore the beauty of a typical village in the Central of Vietnam. Learn the full process of sedge mat weaving from cutting sedge on the field to a finished mat following traditional method. See the way locals manage to keep their traditional occupation in a modern and constantly evolving time. Display your creativity to make your own pattern.
