Hội An 17We will start cycling from hotel to the first traditional occupation village: lanterns. We will cycle through many gardens planting pink roses, yellow chrysanthemum and sweet potato rows, peanut, and bean or sweet corn farms on our way. We visit lantern-making village to take a look at how these beautiful lanterns are made. Then we will go along Thu Bon River to reach Thanh Ha pottery village which appears peacefully with bamboo ranges and grey or white smoke columns. Here we discover the daily life of the villagers. View the various stages of producing the many kinds of pottery products like: jar, vase, pot, earthen pot, decorative lamps and so on.
