In the morning, our guide will meet you at your hotel and bring you to the boat landing either by car or on foot depending on the location of your hotel. You can relax and enjoy a gentle cruise downstream. You will drift by Dong Ba Market located by the Hen islet and arrive at the Sinh Handicraft Village where you will be greeted by the charming famous artist, one of the few artisans left working in this craft. He is delighted to demonstrate to you this craft of creating prints in an old age style. You will be invited to create a print of your own Chinese Horoscope sign as you learn about the painstaking preparation of the handmade paper, glaze made from shells out of the river, paint tinted by natural colorings and even handmade paint brushes from local bushes. You have this treasured opportunity of meeting and spending time with the best of the remaining local artisans who still work in this ancient trade and, if you choose to, purchasing some of the creations to take home with you as momentum.
We are then taken to our cycles to visit the neighboring village of Thanh Tien. This village is famous for its handcrafted paper flowers especially the traditional flower of Vietnam, the Lotus. These flowers are absolutely beautiful, made with care and precision.
After your stay at Thanh Tien, we will continue on your cycle ride through the local paddy fields and pastures where you can enjoy the beauty of the local scenery and see locals going about their daily activities of wet rice cultivation and flower gardening.
