What we say:
Hoi An's flat countryside makes it an ideal location to jump on a pushbike and explore by yourself.
Maps are readily available and roads easy to negotiate; if you stick to the areas between the old town and beaches you will be rewarded by some beautiful countryside, vast paddy, rivers, temples and pagodas.
The islands are also easily accessible – Cam Thanh off Cua Dai Road is a sleepy little fishing village with river palm-lined waterways which feels totally removed from the tourist melee of Hoi An. An Hoi, Cam Nam and Tra Que are great for shorter rides, but if you are looking for a really great bike and boat adventure, you'll want to head over to Kim Bong, where it still feels completely off the beaten path.
For those who want a little more from their bike ride, numerous companies in town offer tours -- one that gets consistently good reviews is Heaven and Earth. They offer a diverse range of guided tours in and around Hoi An; their booking office is on Nguyen Hoang Street (by the lantern market) in An Hoi.
