Rambling Mekong Delta Bike Tour
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!

Mekong DeltaRide through the interior trails of Mekong Delta and live the life around it.
Day 1: Saigon to Tra Vinh
Our guide meets you at your hotel at 8 am.
A short shuttle transfer brings us to My Tho – the gateway of the Mekong delta. Ride along a small creek to Mekong estuary past gorgeous paddy fields and lush orchards. Along the way, we may also see how local people use water-coconut leaves to make thatch roofs. Lunch is served en route at a local restaurant.
Day 2: Can Tho
We go deeper into the delta. We ride past numerous rice fields, rivers and canals, and over a multitude of bridges that may offer views of floating villages. Apart from rice fields, the region is dotted with many plantations of banana, coconut, and citrus trees. It’s a long ride today through the interior trails of Mekong Delta to Can Tho. Set on the southern bank of the Hau River, Can Tho is known for its network of canals and nearby floating markets.
Day 3: Cai Be
Experience early morning Cai Rang floating market on a boat ride. Life here is brimming with hustle and bustle of local vendors selling agricultural produce, household and working tools, and various other products including some awesome Vietnamese food.
Later ride into the heartland of the Mekong Delta, past the pristine hamlets nestled in the orchards and coconut plantations. Along the way, see farmers working in nursery fruit tree gardens.
Day 4: Cai Be
Take an early morning boat trip to the bustling floating market, visit handicraft villages and the Cai Be market on land. After the boat trip, cycle to Cai Lay and along the way discover gardens of Longan (Dragon eyes). We continue cycling to My Tho and visit the ornamental Khmer pagoda of Vinh Trang. Later shuttle to your hotel in Saigon or airport.
We plan to reach HCM before 17:00hrs.

We loved our bike tour
Brilliant way of seeing the real countryside. Our guide was absolutely fantastic and the scenery was stunning. We loved our bike tour and would recommend it to anyone wanting to see the rural villages and real countryside. A good alternative to the big tourist cities
Becky Breshears from US5.0
It was a very memorable tour
We toured the back roads in the Mekong Delta. We loves the friendly people, the beautiful shaded paths, the village way of life that could only be seen from the ground level. It was a very memorable tour that endeared Vietnam to us in our hearts forever.
