Overview

Looking to escape the crazy bustle of city life? This tour of the rural outskirts of Hue is just what you need!


The tour commences with a visit to a bamboo paper workshop under the expert Phan Hai Bang who has over a decade’s experience of researching and creating unique dzo papers decorated with one-of-a-kind Vietnamese cultural motifs. An artist by profession, he excels in using these papers to create various items like conical hats, umbrellas, lamps, fans, postcards, wallets and a ton of other incredible stuff! We will move on to a traditional cultural house where you can explore authentic Vietnamese handicrafts and even have a go at creating a lovely lotus under the supervision of professional craftsmen.


Proceeding towards our next stop, we will arrive at the stunning village of Thuy Bieu where will visit a beautiful pomelo garden house which used be frequented by the royal family. Stroll around the delightful fruit garden, soaking up the verdant ambiance that is sure to refresh you. A thrilling motorbike ride through the quaint streets of this ancient village is lined up next, feasting your eyes on the gorgeous surrounding and making stops to visit a local family producing votive papers as well as a marvellous community temple. If bike rides are not your thing, we have a rejuvenating alternative for you - enjoy a transcendental and therapeutic foot bath in an herbal tub at the same family’s spectacular fruit garden.


Our final dose of happiness comes from visiting the same family to try our hand at making delicious sesame candy with an original Vietnamese twist. Once you have finished, sit back and enjoy the candies along with fresh cup of green tea and ginger candy, while chatting up with the family. A tour that gets you far from the madding crowd for a day amidst beauty and simplicity, this day out around the suburbs of Hue will leave you with an involuntary smile on your face!
