Hoi An Vietnam is made awesome by bikes. Our hotel, the Golden Bell Homestay, offered them for free with our stay. Most hotels do the same, yet be sure before you book. In Siem Reap we rented them for $2.00 a day, which is quite low.
Bikes in Hoi An
First, it’s hot in Hoi An so be sure to cover up with sunscreen. Second, know where you’re going.
On our first bike trip we were headed to The Dingo Cafe – more to come on that place later when I talk about Eats in Hoi An. Google maps is great – and it sent us through the field on this rustic road. It was my favourite part of Hoi An.
They are drying rice wherever they can. It’s so neat. It takes up a large portion of the street sometimes, I wonder if it ever gets run over.
The back roads in the community – full of flowers.
The rustic road through the field is full of action – workers, animals and trucks passing through. By riding bikes in Hoi An Vietnam we were able to experience a bit of localness.
This lady tried about three different times to get on her bike. I was taking photos from a far with a large lens, so I wasn’t in her face or anything. I admire her tenacity since I can only image how much that load weighs. Nice work.
Manual labour is big in the little town of Hoi An.
That’s me with my bike! The basket is very useful especially when you head into Old Town. It carries your camera, water and so much more.
Overall, bikes in Hoi An Vietnam is the way to go – we even biked in the rain to one of our favourite restaurants. If you want to experience a bit of localness and see the town from a different perspective then get out some wheels and go. You’ll have fun, trust me.
