There was the option to borrow bikes from our homestay (the Asian term for a bed and breakfast hotel) or book onto an organised tour. We only had 3 days in Hoi An and I hadn't ridden a bike for over 15 years so being a massive chicken I decided an organised tour was the way to go.
After doing plenty of research online we decided to book a half day tour through Grasshopper Adventures, costing US$37 per person. What drew us to this tour in particular was that it included stops at different homes within the local Hoi An community, giving us the chance to get a taster of the Vietnamese way of life.
The result was a day filled with memorable experiences and moments which touched me more than any other experience I have had whilst travelling. Read on to find out why it was so special!
