Binh Tien Farmstay Full Day
Upon arrival, meet the local guide then hop on your bike, we'll begin pedaling for 7 km on quiet back-roads through peaceful villages, seeing sceneries changing from small canals to big river, from the sugar cane field to green paddies, etc. Pause en-route to visit a family-run incense making workshop where you can observe the making process. We continue cycling passing Vam Co Tay River – the largest & most important river system of Long An Province. Take a rest, enjoy some fruits & relax your leg at a local pagoda along the way.
Afterwards, we cycle along the canal to a wide lotus field grown by local farmers for living. Chill out, enjoy fresh coconut water picked up on spot by the boat rower. You can even try to collect lotus flower, seeds and roots yourself. The roots you pick up will be used to prepare for a delicious Vietnamese salad.
Return to land, we continue cycling and there you’ll have a chance to challenge yourself up over a high bridge. Pass the bridge, we will stop to visit a local primary school (we encourage to view from outside only to avoid distracting the kids from their lesson in class). Finish cycling, we continue take a transfer straight to Binh Tien Farmstay. You’ll arrive the farm at around 11:30 where the Host Family greets you with hospitality, lovely smiles and a homemade herbal drink! You are the only guests of honor today.
(Note 1: Cycling option can be replaced with motor-biking option.)
(Note 2: For cycling lovers, 25km cycling route straight to Binh Tien can be arranged)
After getting to know the Host Family, you can take a rest by the pond, watching ducks swinging and surfing over the water lily or go discover the luxuriant garden with many types of tropical fruit trees, vegetable and flowers before lunch. Your hostess will treat you with special dishes made of local fresh ingredients grew at the farm (you can even join the family preparing the food if you like.) After meal, simply relax or take a nap on one of the hammocks that scattered around the farm or go fishing in peaceful atmosphere. Life couldn’t get much better!
Late this afternoon, we’ll cycle around the village. On the way, we’ll visit some vegetable farms and join local farmers collecting the crops if you wish and a fish pole making workshop. Return to the Binh Tien Farmstay, enjoy a delicious local sweet soup before saying farewell to the host family and head back to Ho Chi Minh City.
