Day 1 A Vintage Ride in Cam Kim Island, Hoi An’s countryside

Meals: lunch | Accommodation: not included

We will leave our hotel at 8:00 am and set off on our cycling ride towards the peaceful countryside of Cam Kim Island. The route will lead us through lush sceneries, rice paddies and farmlands.  We will be free to stop along the way as many times as we wish or just keep on riding eagerly, if that is the way we prefer. 

There will be time to visit a local family in Duy Vinh Commune and learn about the curious ancestral technique that they use to make traditional sedge mattreses. 

After the break, we will make our way to the coast at Thu Bon river mouth and prepare ourselves to climb over the new Cua Dai bridge. This will be the most challenging part of your morning cycle but in return, we will be rewarded with spectacular panoramic views over Hoi An, the rivers and the coco palm mangrove forest. 

Time to relax after our active morning enjoying a home-made lunch at a local house in a nice village en-route before being transferred to our hotel around 1:00 pm. 
Cycling length: 30 km, intermediate grade.
