The scenic drive from downtown Nha Trang to the green countryside is marked by vast rice fields, fruit gardens and majestic mountains on the horizon. Stop at a local temple dedicated to the god believed to bestow good luck on the villagers. Many generations of local ancestors are worshipped here, and the altar is decorated with the candles and incense that symbolize the universe. Here you can also see local people weave floor mats in jute or bananas. Drive along a small village road to enjoy wonderful photo opportunities of the rice fields, mountains, buffaloes and more.
Visit a farmer's house to view how they live, raise domestic animals, cook food, plant fruit, and worship their ancestors. If the local market is still open, you’ll have a chance to stop for photos.
Stop at a local coffee shop to enjoy a coconut drink and sample some locally-grown tropical fruit before continuing on. Visit a local pagoda where the monks will welcome you, and show you how they live, worship Buddha and train themselves in Buddhist principles. The pagoda has a small orphanage where you can interact with the children who are mostly orphans. Your tour concludes with a visit to a rice paper workshop, where they make rice cakes to sell to locals for their breakfast.
