Our tour begins with a bike ride to the sprawling fields of paddy, where your guides will introduce you to the day-to-day routines of local farmers. Many of our guides will be able to give you an in-depth insight into this agricultural activity, having worked in the fields with their parents from a young age.

After a good night’s rest, we begin Day 2 of our tour with a light breakfast. Your guide will take you to a local rice wine distillery.
