Buffalo Ride & Basket Boat Tour

by GoAsiaDayTrip Duration 2h 30m Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per traveller Price is £40

Check out the countryside around Hoi An and take to the water in a Vietnamese basket boat on a tour that shows off the charming lands around the city. You can admire the rice paddies along the Thu Bon River, take a ride on a water buffalo, and get a real sense of what the local life is like.

Your guide picks you up from your hotel for the ride to a rice paddy farm, where you can meet with the land's farmer and learn a bit about its signature crop. Climb on the back of a water buffalo for a ride before you move on to a local fishing village for some insight into the industry that supports another of the region's staple foods.

After time to rest with some tea at a local home, you get a quick briefing to prepare for your adventure on the river. Practise your balance on the basket-shaped boat made of woven bamboo, try out your paddling, and set out to see the sights from a whole new perspective. Your tour comes to an end as you join a local family for a light snack, and then it's time for the ride back to your hotel.

One of the best tour ever. Lilly the guide and the guys from the boat were just amaizing and the Buffalo ride so cool. You can't miss that. Best of the best.
