What To Expect

Nha Trang Beach
Your driver and guide will pick you up from your hotel at 9.00 am to start the Nha Trang Countryside Tour.

It takes us a short drive through the city to the countryside. You will experience the rural life of the local people.

Our first stop is the Pagoda-Orphanage; This site shelters and cares for over 120 abandoned, orphaned or street children. They range from several months to 9 years of age. The children of the orphanage are taken care by a group of Buddhist nuns and volunteers. Their goal is to provide the children with a safe and caring environment which reduces their misfortune and gives their lives greater purpose and meaning. Being a private organization, the orphanage is trying to provide its children with food, shelter, health and education. The nuns at the orphanage have devoted their lives for the wonderful mission of helping needy the orphans.

We will continue our Nha Trang Countryside Tour to visit a Rice Paper Making factory;

One of the most popular foods in VN is made from rice steamed and processed into round pieces, dried in the sun on bamboo brackets, then offered for sale in the inns and shops locally, and commonly used to wrap the famous Vietnamese rice-paper rolls and Vietnamese spring rolls.

Next, we will visit the place where they make the Non la (palm-leaf conical hat) which is a traditional symbol of Vietnamese people without age, gender or racial distinctions.

Like many other traditional costumes of Vietnam, Non la has its own origin, coming from a legend related to the history of rice growing in Vietnam. The story is about a giant woman from the sky who has protected humankind from a deluge of rain. She wore a hat made of four round shaped leaves to guard against all the rain. After the Goddess had gone, Vietnamese people built a temple to commemorate her as the Rain-shielding Goddess.

Vietnamese people tried to make a hat modeling after the Goddess' by stitching together palm leaves, which is now known as Non la. The image of Non la has become strongly associated with peasant lives from the paddy fields to boat men and women.

Non la can serve numerous uses such as shade from the sun, a basket for women going to market, a fan of a ploughman in hot summer days, or even a keepsake to remember. The image of a young lady wearing Non la and Ao Dai is a beautiful symbol of Vietnam; Non la is also an object which, as part of the national spirit, closely links Vietnamese people, so many travellers enjoy taking a Non la as a special souvenir from Vietnam.

Intricate manual work by women is accomplished here, and it would also be a great gift for your friends when you get home.

The following destination of our Nha Trang Countryside Tour is a Rush mat weaving family business;

How different our bed mats are from what you sleep on back home! View the material and weaving process. This mat is popular with most people in tropical weather.

Two people working together will weave just four mats in a day, which will be taken to the local market and traded for food and other essentials.

Tourists can try their hand at a little weaving themselves. A small mat is your present, as well.

We then carry on our Nha Trang Countryside Tour to visit the Char-coal stove making village;

Considered as kitchen God to all Vietnamese, there is one stove in every family although gas cookers are widely used nowadays. You will learn the legend of kitchen God as related by local craftmen. You can experience the fire culture in Vietnam.

The last destination of our Nha Trang Countryside Tour is the Ancient house;

Built almost 200 years ago, all Vietnamese houses are built in this style, the layout is for 3 apartments in the 2 wings in which the middle one to worship ancestors with full- decoration of the altar. On either side are bedrooms. The architecture is very typical of 36 pillars and roofing of zin and zen tiles, A courtyard is at the front for bonsai and plants situated in an exuberant orchard setting.

Five generations of a Vietnamese family have continued to reside to live in this house.

You can experience the setting and make acquaintance with local people to see many things like coffee processing, cashew nut peeling. Visit the Village communal house. Your delicious lunch will be served to you at riverside restaurant with amazing panorama.

The Nha Trang Countryside Tour will end about 4.00 pm. We will take you back and drop you off at your hotel.

We did this tour with our 3 & 5 year old and it was wonderful. Our guide was patient and kind, and spoke very good English. Got to see the beautiful countryside and meet local families. Would recommend this tour when visiting Nha Trang.
Truly Authentic Nha Trang Tour
krawiet1386, 16-09-2022
This tour was exactly what we had hoped it would be. Dat is a true local and was an excellent tour guide. An authentic and genuine experience of getting a glimpse into the lives of the locals. The Buddhist orphanage/school was just beautiful. The children were so happy and made our day with their laughs and excitement. The rice paper making, conical hat making and noodle making were super authentic. Amazing. The old traditional ways carried on through generations. We also saw a gorgeous traditional home and stopped at a rice field for an explanation of rice farming by Dat. We then stopped at a local cafe for a delicious kumquat tea. Lastly, we had lunch and the BBQ ribs were the best I think I've ever tasted. A great day!! Not too long and truly authentic. Dat is very knowledgeable, speaks great English and was extremely informative about all things Vietnamese. So glad we chose this tour!
