Itinerary

Your biking ride starts in Hoi An near the old town. Ride between streets lined with old shop houses before ending up at the river where you will board a small boat for a short 10 minute ride to Cam Kim Island.

Once on the island you start biking through small villages and rice paddies on narrow roads and dirt trails. There is a change to see locals making fishing boats from the trail.

From here the scenery opens up and the countryside becomes more rustic. The road remains flat throughout this section of the ride you bike by duck farms, old pagodas and enjoy views of farmers out in the field and fisherman in the river casting nets.
