More About This Experience

Everywhere in Vietnam you can see rice. Vietnamese people eat rice everyday in their meals. Rice is part of their life and it reflects the Vietnamese culture. Nowadays, technology is applied widely in producing rice and that helps much farmers and it is less hard in farming work. But the old traditional way of producing rice is still kept unchanged in some parts of the country as it is the basic work to have rice. We love our homeland and we are eager to sharing our country as it is. Our main purpose is to provide our guest (all of ages) with the opportunity to experience first hand the authentic daily lives of the local fishing and farming communities in Cam Thanh village of Hoi An City. We would like to help tourists understand the life of the countryside people. You can join us to learn all about rice: Plough the soil with water buffalo, raking soil on the field; scooping water, transplanting rice, preparing cooking rice etc. We bring you back to the old life of our ancestors. Local farmers will instruct you how to cultivate rice in the fields, from planting the seeds to harvesting the ripe grain, and finally with a traditional delicious lunch of rice (or dinner) that included: pumpkin soup, rice pancake, steamed rice,vegetables, eggplant, mackerel in tomato sauce, shrimp, pork. The typical calm and peace of the country life will take you far away from the hustle and bustle of everything. Please contact us for more info and join with us to experience "the real countryside life", sharing some interesting moments in our special atmosphere!
