Backyard Travel Launches Central Vietnam Tour: Bikes and Basket Boats

March 25, 2017 Tour Operator No Comments Email Email

Backyard Travel, the online boutique tour operator specializing in insider tours throughout Asia, today announced the new Classic Coastal Tour: Hue to Hoi An that gets travelers off the tourist trail and into a basket boat (as well as other fun activities). Making its way from Hue and Hoi An via Danang, this active 6-day, 5-night tour puts travelers on a bicycle, in a cyclo seat and in a traditional bamboo basket boat for some of the most unique ways to see Vietnam.

Launching from the former imperial capital of Hue, this tour showcases the city’s historic sites, its bustling marketplace, the beautiful Perfume River and some standout local dining. It then whisks travelers away on one of the most scenic coastal drives in Vietnam, along the Pass of the Ocean Clouds, through remarkably picturesque landscapes of rivers, mountains and sea.

Outside Hoi An, travelers cycle to an organic farm for a look at sustainable rural living, before hopping into basket boats for a leisurely cruise through lush rice fields. Also in Hoi An: a sunrise boat trip on the Thu Bon river, a walking tour of the city and optional activities that include beach time, a vintage Vespa tour and a cooking class that highlights the country’s diverse and delicious cuisines.
