CRUISING & BIKING TO RURAL VILLAGES (20km biking)
Depart on a 1-hour dragon boat ride to Sinh Village. Take a short walk to the house of Mr. Huu Phuoc, the oldest artisan in the village, to hear about the 400-year-old craft of using “dzo” paper made from tree bark. Mr. Phuoc makes paintings that are protected with a layer of sticky rice paste, resulting in an amazingly long-lasting finish.
Cycle 40-minutes past rice paddy fields to Thanh Tien Village and learn about the 300-year-old craft of paper flower making. The flowers are mainly used to decorate altars for ancestor worship and as offerings in religious rituals. Try creating your own paper lotus flower under the guidance of one of the artisans. Continue cycling to Tien Non Village, scenic flower and farm. Explore the scenic village before cycling back to your hotel.
