This half-day-cycling tour will lead you to the countryside off the beaten track where you can contemplate the beautiful settings, understand about the locals’ way of life and discover a relic which reflects the regal life of kings in the feudal ages.

At 8:00a.m, we start biking to Ho Quyen arena where tigers and elephants fought to the death in gladiator style, for the benefit of the royal family and other high-ranking spectators. The last battle was held in 1904 under the King Thanh Thai. 
Leaving the arena behind, we continue biking to an orphanage and give our little help for children there. After that, keep cycling toward Thuy Bieu Village – the village has been well-known for its special Thanh Tra. Thanh Tra is a kind of grapefruit but smaller, sweeter and more fragrant. At there, you will have a chance to stroll around the garden, listen to the growing and harvesting method of locals and taste the fruit (if coming there in the right season).

We proceed biking , taking short stop in schools, communal houses, ancient temples and especially the garden house - the typical housing architecture of Hue and the Nguyen dynasty with small cottages hidden in large luxuriant gardens, long gates and fences carved out of ornamental trees.

At around 10:30a.m, we come back to a local house in Thuy Bieu village for cooking class. After the instruction and live demonstration of the hosts, you will prepare lunch by yourself to make Hue specialties. Have a lunch with the hosts. 
Spend haft an hour to relax by steeping your foot in medicinal herb water – a traditional therapeutic practice.

Say good bye to the host, we embark on boat for cruise along the poetic Perfume River to come to the next destination – Thien Mu pagoda. On the boat you can admire the daily life of locals, old bridge built by French- Trang Tien bridge. 
Tour ends at about 2:00p.m
