Riding water buffalo Hoi An

Water buffalo

Many of the Vietnamese country boys’ childhood  was spent looking after their water buffalo. The water buffalo is a very friendly animal and used to be the main working force for the farming industry; it was used to plow the rice fields before the plantation or to pull the wagons full of farming products. Today we use machinery to work the fields instead of buffalo, so you do not see as many buffalo in Vietnam now. However, Hoi An farmers had a smart idea of using buffalo to carry our travelers for a unique fun. Let’s discover and have fun with Hoi An Cycling
