With geographical characteristic as the heart of the nation, Central Vietnam is packed with historic sites and rich cultural patterns. During 1 week, we will take you from the ancient town Hoian, historic My Son Sanctuary to the imperial city of Hue. Finally, enjoy the spectacular sceneries in Phong Nha - Ke Bang National Park on a Quang Binh tour. This trip is open to adjustment and would make a perfect Vietnam private tour for those who love to travel exclusively with their party.
This morning you will have a real adventure with a wonderful eco tour named Wet Rice - which allows you to know about the whole process of how rice reaches its finished product. Start the day by cycling to the rice farm (other transfer options such as car and motor taxi are available with surcharge applied), riding a water buffalo and then taking part in plough, raking, sowing, planting, grinding and separating the rice and making rice flour. At the end of the tour you will have the opportunity to cook and eat beautiful crispy pancakes which will be served with a cool drink. This whole experience is held on a family farm and will be something you will never forget. Just prepare to get dirty!
