- A beautiful morning dedicated to learning the culture of rice
- The calm and beauty of the Vietnamese countryside
To start with, you will be met by your guide at your hotel lobby.
In the morning, hop on a bicycle (in case of not being able to cycle, a van can be used as an option) and start cycling to the countryside through rice paddies enjoying fresh air and surrounding nature.
On arrival at local farm, enjoy welcome drinks presented by local farmers. It is then time to put on traditional Vietnamese farming attire (conical hats, boots, gloves, etc) and get into the muddy rice field.
Try riding a water buffalo, the “BMW of Viet Nam”, at the rice farm. The local guide will introduce the process of wet rice cultivation with farming tools. It is now your turn to experience the farming chores, learning how to plough and make the rice paddy flooded with authentic farming tools.
At mid-morning, take a break at a cottage house and have a cup of green tea accompanied by boiled sweet potatoes and salty peanuts. The second half of the tour is about practicing sowing, pulling up seedlings, transplanting rice. Then you will learn how to grind rice and use pestle and mortar for rice husking.
After your day's hard work as a real Vietnamese farmer, the long awaited time for relaxation will come. But before that, as part of the educational process, you will be presented with the basics of making pancakes, cooking rice and, finally, you will enjoy your own creation.
Share lunch with the local farmer before going back to hotel by bicycle.
