Discover Triem Tay Village, a preserved and peaceful village just a stone’s throw away from Hoi An on Cam Kim Island. Home to nearly 150 families whose livelihoods still revolve around heritage activities such as farming & weaving, this village presents the perfect opportunity to explore Vietnam’s traditional side. Explore on foot, meet the locals, observe first-hand the community-based tourism endeavours underway and enjoy a scenic boat ride back to Hoi An Town.

Upon arrival continue on foot along the banks of the Thu Bon River. This side of the river is a world apart from the tourism-dominated areas of Hoi An Ancient Town. Take a refreshment break to adjust to the change of pace. While sipping a delicious cafe sua da, enjoy some enchanting traditional songs as the perfect welcome to Triem Tay Village.
Afterwards, explore the serene village on foot and visit some families’ homes to learn about traditional ways of life that have been well preserved up to today. Meet some elders and hear some of their stories and descriptions of traditions in the area. Next, visit an organic farming project created by a group of volunteers to improve the standards of living of locals. This social enterprise works hand in hand with local villagers to educate and encourage the implementation of sustainable ‘green’ agricultural processes in order to benefit future generations as well as the present one. There may be the opportunity to join volunteers and villagers in some gardening activities or, alternatively, take a chance to relax in the shady gazebo.
After sharing a rustic homemade lunch in a local house, continue helping in the garden or explore the peaceful village at leisure. Early afternoon, transfer by local boat along the Thu Bon River back to Hoi An historic town, soaking up the peaceful scenery along the way. Transfer back to your hotel. (L)
