    Stop: 4 hours
    Pick you up at your hotel by bicycle (In case of not being able to bike, van can be used to go as an option). Biking to the countryside throughout the rice paddy, enjoy the fresh air with the nature. In Hoi An, there are 2 seasons of growing rice yearly, in the season, farmers are often busy and get up early in the morning. They work hard from the early morning till the late afternoon. Meeting the local farmer, talking with them about their local farming daily life, having a cup of tea with them at the middle of the rice paddy field farm. Wearing farming clothes before getting into muddy rice field like: Vietnamese authentic and traditional farmer clothes, conical hat, boost… Learning how to grow the wet rice with water buffalo plough, use agricultural water system. Farming on the rice paddy is a cooperative job, so through this job, we can understand the personalities of Vietnamese farmers such as: cooperation, support, help, freedom, generosity … Enjoy riding water buffalo at a small pond at the rice farm. Having a local meal with the local farmer at their house and chatting with them about their daily life.
