MEKONG DELTA ON WHEEL ( 3 days)

TRIP HIGHLIGHTS

This trip covers a little over 150 kilometers on well surfaced roads cycling. The daily distances are not too long and the terrain is gentle so this trip suitable for most people, but it's advisable to have a modicum of fitness to enjoy the riding! Fast cyclists can ride at their own pace, as detailed directions are available from the tour leader. Our route is designed to take us off the main roads as much as possible

 

Itinerary

Mekong delta cycling in three days

Day1: Saigon to Vinh Long. (Lunch, dinner)

We travel two hours from Saigon to My Tho where we board our boat. Late morning finds us drifting down bustling arteries of the Mekong from where we veer off to travel down the tranquil canals. Our sightseeing on the island , where we sample seasonal fruit along with tea and honey and even local wine. We then walk to the village's boat landing where we board small sampans and paddle along narrow arroyos (waterways). break for lunch at a local restaurant.
Following lunch, we enjoy a leisurely, two-hour afternoon bicycle ride along a narrow dirt road during which we traverse bridges and pass through local farms. Arriving in Cai Be, we board a boat to the floating market and then cruise over 1.5km-wide Mekong river to Binh Hoa Phuoc. You can expect spectacular sunsets along the Mekong. We have dinner at and spend the night in a guesthouse on Binh Hoa Phuoc island.

Day 2: Vinh Long to Can Tho. (Breakfast, lunch, dinner)

 

Following breakfast, under the cool shelter of the green canopy, we bike half an hour to the ferry crossing for Vinh Long. We then have an extended ride to Can Tho. While our exact route will vary (depending on our group's cycling abilities), you can expect to pass through villages (with brick kiln and terracotta roofs), past rice fields, and by innumerable rural riverside villages.
We will break for lunch at a local restaurant. Late afternoon will be reserved for promenading production along the city quay or, if time permits, yet more cycling along riverside to Can Tho. We will stay in Can Tho. (or optional countryside homestay).

 

Day 3: Can Tho to Saigon. (Breakfast, lunch)

 

We embark on a morning boat trip to Cai Rang's floating market  before heading up a quiet canal for more cruising along winding waterways.We then bike for two hours along backcountry roads taking in the breathtaking Mekong Delta scenery and greeting locals (many of whom will also be on bicycle).

Following lunch we head back to Sai Gon where our tour ends
