The five-hour tour, which costs from 19 USD per person, allows visitors to experience traditional crafts, from weaving straw to making boats while pedaling around Duy Vinh Island, about five kilometers from downtown Hoi An.

"Along the way, learn the secrets of crafting the colorful woven straw mats that Vietnamese people traditionally slept on and many in the countryside still use, see how traditional boats are made and watch farmers in rice fields," Tripadvisor recommended.

Hoi An has pioneered pedestrian-friendly streets since 2004, with most hotels, restaurants and homestay facilities offering bike rental services. Motorbikes and cars are banned from the town center for large parts of the day.

A bike tour of Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area in the US was ranked as the world's best biking experience, followed by a cycling tour in Hawaii.
