One of the best ways to approach a culture is to go through their food. As for that, Hoi An food clearly represents its culture, history, people, and weather,… For many hundreds of years, Hoi An has developed an enormous culinary culture from street food to fine dining restaurants. Food in Hoi An is very simple but so succulent, tasty and healthy and of course easy to cook. Here is our itinerary: Starting from your hotels, we will cycle to Tra Que organic Vegetable farm where the local farmers are growing several veggies and herbs to provide the people in Hoi An and Danang. You will interact with the local farmers there to understand the process of growing. On our bikes, we keep going to the water coconut village where the the river meets the sea to learn how people here survived the Vietnam war and how they make a living from fishing. Our journey continues to ” Mate restaurant and Coffee” to experience their ways of cooking directly from the owners. Moreover, if you want, you can learn how to make an amazing cup of Vietnamese coffee. Finally, you can have free time on the beach in front of the restaurant before getting transferred back to your hotels.
