We also use a bamboo bucket to get water into the field and transplant baby wet rice at the rice paddy field. You have a delicious lunch with your local family with typical countryside food.
After lunch, you continue your dream trip to learn how to fish with a cast net and round net. We start biking in the countryside, snapping the best photos ever and seeing how organic farm is with fresh veggies and fruits such as tomatoes, corns, kohlrabi, broccoli and salad.
