In the morning, your bicycles will arrive at your hotel ready for you to start riding through Hue's rural villages towards the Thanh Toan Bridge (8km). A visit to a local market will provide you with views of daily life and the huge variety of local products on sale. You'll then return to Hue's city centre with a visit en route to the Ngoc Son Princess 'Garden House', where the owner will be pleased to explain the geomantic (feng shui) principles underlying the design and construction.
After lunch, your route will take you to visit the towering Thien Mu Pagoda, one of the most famous Vietnamese landmarks. Differing legends explain how the pagoda came to be - one tells of an old woman who instructed Lord Hoang Nguyen in 1601 to walk contemplatively along the river with a lit incense stick and to build a city at the spot where the incense stopped burning.From there, you'll cross the river by boat to ride along a country lane to one of the handicraft villages outside of town that specializes in incense making before looping back to your hotel by a different route.
