Rice is the staple diet in many Asian countries, especially in Vietnam. Perhaps, you have seen rice growing in most of Asian rice paddy fields. However, you do not know the sequence of rice cultivation in Vietnam. It is still secret to know how for western tourists. We would like to organize the wet rice growing tour for you. Through this tour, we instruct you on how to cultivate rice in the fields and also help you experience the hardships of Vietnamese farmers. We are sure this tour will make your trip an extremely memorable experience.
Meet the tour guide and driver at the port then transfer to Hoi An. Start biking (or taking van) to the countryside throughout the rice paddle, enjoy the fresh air with nature. Then meet the local farmers, chat with them about the local farming daily life, and have a cup of tea with them in the middle of the rice paddle field farm. After that, wear the farmer clothes to get into the muddy rice field like Vietnamese authentic and traditional farmer clothes, conical hats, boost….
The tour guide will introduce and explain the process of wet rice how to grow it before starting the farming works, learn how to group wet rice with water buffalo plow, use the agricultural water system. You will also transplant rice at the rice field, enjoy riding with water buffalo at a small pond at the rice farm. End of the “hard-working” time, we enjoy our lunch with the local farmer at their house and back to the downtown for a cup of coffee before transferring back to the cruise.
