Biking trip to Thuy Bieu Village – Vietnam Catholic Tours

Biking trip to Thuy Bieu Village

Biking trip to Thuy Bieu Village

Meet at your hotel at 8.00 am in the morning for a short ride by cyclo to a local coffee shop. You’ll be welcomed into a nice and cozy atmosphere, frequented mainly by locals. Your guide will introduce you the schedule of the day and the history of local life, while enjoying a nice Vietnamese coffee.

From here we’ll cycle a few km to Ho Quyen (Tiger Arena). Wildly overgrown but evocative, Ho Quyen was built in 1830 for the royal pastime of watching elephants and tigers face off in combat. The tigers (and leopards) were usually relieved of their claws and teeth so that the elephants – a symbol of the emperor’s power – triumphed every time. Climb up grassy ramparts and imagine the scene in the old arena – the last fight was held in 1904.

We’ll continue our cycle ride for around 45 minutes to Thuy Bieu Village, which is a wonderland of pomelo that possesses a very special taste and fragrance. Locals call it “thanh tra” or “green tea citruit” as its flesh is juicily light green.

Stop by a local garden house and enjoy the story of the people who live there and have kept it original. They will prepare some natural herbs for soaking your feet after your ride and then get ready for a local lunch in the garden. A nice menu will be prepared for you.
