Inside Asia Tours: Vietnam, Cambodia & Laos

Going Green In Hoi An

Discover Triem Tay Village, a preserved and peaceful village just a stone's throw away from Hoi An on Cam Kim Island.

Exploring Hoi An, whilst one of the most spectacular destinations in Asia, can definitely not be described as a solitary pursuit. We will take you away from the tourism-dominated areas of Hoi An Ancient Town to the rural islets and villages across the Thu Bon River.

Home to nearly 150 families whose livelihoods still revolve around heritage activities such as farming & weaving, this village presents the perfect opportunity to explore Vietnam's traditional side.

Explore the serene village on foot and visit some families' homes to learn about traditional ways of life that have been well preserved up to today. Meet some elders and hear some of their stories and descriptions of traditions in the area.

Visit an organic farming project created by a group of volunteers to improve the standards of living of locals. As social enterprise, it works hand in hand with local villagers to educate and encourage the implementation of sustainable "green" agricultural processes in order to benefit future generations as well as the present one. There may also be the opportunity to join volunteers and villagers in some gardening activities or, alternatively, take a chance to relax in the shady gazebo.

After sharing a rustic homemade lunch in a local house, continue helping in the garden or explore the peaceful village at leisure. Late in the afternoon, transfer by local boat along the Thu Bon River back to Hoi An historic town, soaking up the peaceful scenery along the way. This atmospheric town is at its most photogenic in the late afternoon as the sun begins to set. Be sure to snap a few photos along the river before the conclusion of this memorable tour.
