Rambling Mekong Delta Bike Tour

vietnam bike tour 4

Overview

Enjoy the best of Mekong on this spectacular winding loop through the rural landscape of the Mekong Delta. Life here is brimming with fulness of fish farming, coconut plantations, lush paddy fields, and the tranquility of rural delta life.

The terrain is absolutely flat and we get to share interior narrow trails with local people either riding typical french bikes or 2-wheelers, criss-cross the rivers in local ferries, and ride over a multitude of bridges. The amazing stops along the way such as the coconut candy factory, and anecdotes shared by our local guide only complement the ride further. The region here is the epitome of slow life and the only way to experience this is on your bike!
