Bamboo Artisanry of Hoi An by Bike and Boat
Combine an off-the-beaten-track bicycle ride with a glimpse into the traditional arts of Hoi An.
The town of Hoi An has a reputation for its distinctive arts and crafts. It is home to many factories and workshops where the ancient techniques first introduced by the ancestors of the town’s families are still being followed to this day. These exquisite handicrafts are produced using local materials such as bamboo, wood and Vietnamese fabrics.
Hop on your bike and cycle to the pier. Then, along with your bicycle, board a boat for a cruise to Cam Kim Island. Ride through the lush surroundings stopping at some of the authentic workshops to see how wooden boats, traditional basket boats, and beautiful carpets are made.
From here take another cruise to the east of Hoi An and visit Cam Thanh village where endless nipa palm forests cover hectares of land. These abundant forests provide the locals with bamboo, an essential raw material from which they build houses as well as producing beautiful handicrafts and even sturdy bamboo bicycles.
Visit a bamboo workshop and try your hand at this popular craft before cycling back to the old town.
