The Hoi An Eco Tour company is launching an eco-tour using buffalo carts in Thanh Nam and Con Chai villages, Hoi An City, Quang Nam Province.  Swinging along on carts drawn by buffaloes on village roads surrounded by green rice fields, riding on the back of a buffalo, or standing behind a buffalo to plow will bring new experiences for foreign tourists.

The buffalo carts are made entirely from bamboo, which makes them different from the wooden ones made in Ha Noi’s Bat Trang Ceramics Village.  Hoi An’s carts are able to carry about 10 people and their roofs of water coconut leaves will give tourists a cool, comfortable and close-to-nature feeling.

Travelling by buffalo cart, tourists will have the opportunity to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere, as well as to visit the green rice fields in Hoi An’s villages.  In addition, they can take memorable photos with their friends or families.
