Water Puppet Tours

da

With its numerous national parks, white sand beaches, colourful villages, pagodas and ancient monuments, forests and islands, Vietnam is a land of often surprising beauty, offering cultural depth and history, increasingly combined with tourism-friendly areas offering all the facilities a modern traveller could wish for.

Vietnam’s people are its greatest asset: gregarious, friendly and eager to meet visitors. In the bustling cities, the often chaotic streets contrast ox carts with limousines, ancient rituals with sophisticated technology, and are ruled by the ubiquitous moped.

Our strength is in translating these opportunities into detailed, practical itineraries. We do luxury travel and event planning, as well as a wide range of beach, family, honeymoon, adventure, golf, veteran and cultural tours.

There is no better way to experience a destination than through the perspective of the local people. At Water Puppet Tours, this key element of local insight drives every step of our process of tour design and delivery. We provide tailor-made tours individually crafted for each client, achieving this by emphasizing the direct working relationship between the client and the tour designer and operator.

Cycling from Hue to Hoi An 2 Days

Cycling between two of Vietnam’s most impressive and internationally recognized World Heritage sites. This beautiful ride takes you along the Coast, over the spectacular Hai Van pass, and meanders through fishing villages, lagoons, mountains, rice paddies and forests and you have a change to stop at Lang Co beach, one of the most beautiful beach in the world.

Lang Co village hides among coconut palms on a sandy peninsula, its presence revealed only by its church’s spire. The beach shares its name with the village. It’s about 10km from end to end, conveniently positioned along the 1A National Road near Banh Ma forest. Its sand is very fine and slopes gently towards the sea.

Hoi An town is a UNESCO World Heritage area. An ancient trading port, once the largest in Indochina, Hoi An was a meeting point for many cultures that left their mark in the different architectural features of its wooden buildings. The original traditional street pattern still exists, as does the quay that once welcomed ships from all over East Asia and beyond. Many remained there for months at a time, waiting for favourable trade winds to carry them home.
There are plenty of good restaurants offering a variety of cuisines and price levels. The town is also a good place for shopping for silk. You can have your clothes tailor-made within a day or two at reasonable cost.

Cycling from Hue to Hoi An 2 Days

Day 1: Cycling from Hue to Lang Co Beach (Lunch, Dinner, Guide) – Cycling distance 60km

Your guide and vehicle will pick you up at your hotel in Hue for a short 15 minutes transfer to trail head where you will start your ride. The strong rider can start riding from Hue (if desired). The initial section is flat for 50 kilometers and gives you a chance to ride through the rice paddy fields and a stop at the Ghost City where traditional customs of the local people of Central Vietnam are played out.

You will then continue riding through small beach villages with the road totally covered by bamboo and Casuarina forest, sheltering our ride from the heat.

After lunch, you will continue biking on back roads. This section of riding rolls through small hills, villages, and cajuput forest about 10 kilometers to the bottom of Phuoc Tuong pass where you will meet your vehicle and transfer 30 minute to Lang Co resort. The rest of the day will be free at your leisure or you can swim or relax at the beach. You will spend the night in Lang Co Beach.

Lang Co village hides among coconut palms on a sandy peninsula, its presence revealed only by its church’s spire. The beach shares its name with the village.

The pass is part of the Annamite Mountain Range and is considered one of the most beautiful in the country.

After taking a short rest at the top, your hard work is rewarded by a fantastic 10 kilometer section of downhill riding to the bottom.  Ride at a moderate pace so you can enjoy the fantastic views of the lagoon from above. At the base of the pass, you will stop for a picnic lunch of sandwiches, fresh fruits, veggies and baked goods.
