Private Tour: The Charm Of Cam Kim (Half Day Tour – Optional Boat Trip)
Cam Kim Island, Kim Bong carpentry village....
Traversing the narrow bridge that spans Thu Bon River from the old town, Cam Kim Island is a bucolic region not far from Hoi An centre. Expansive rice paddies and corn fields separate the island’s scattered hamlets. Small houses with vegetable gardens, lines of areca or coconut trees, gentle but magnificent water buffaloes ambling in the rice fields and children riding bicycles for noon break, paints an enriching portrait of this peaceful island. The villages also have some traditional handicrafts such as carving, boat building, mat making that have endured over hundreds of years of generations. There are two options to discover, full day cycling or half day cycling with a boat trip back to Hoi An.
Start 8:00: A local tour guide will meet you at your hotel, check your bike and start to cycle to Cam Kim Island. You will cycle for about 14km mainly on small paved paths in the middle of the island, which go through rice and corn fields, and alongside beautiful hamlets. You will then pay a visit to Kim Bong carpentry village, the establishment of artisans that have a long history of boat building, constructing beautiful wooden houses and traditional furniture for the old town since the 18th century. After, take a quick visit to a family making noodles, and rice paper in the village, where upon you will cycle back to the hotel at the end of morning.
Optional Boat trip: This trip can be combined with a 1-hour boat trip along part of north side from Dong Binh village. Thus, the schedule will be rearranged, the total cycling is about 12km plus 8km for boat trip.
