Mekong delta cycling tour 3 days
From US$350.00
Overview
Mekong delta cycling tour 3 days. It's a combination trip of back road cycling, boat cruise and local home stay from Cai be to Vinh long and on to Can tho.
This tour include meals, drinking water, bicycles and accommodation.
What to Expect
Day 1: Saigon – MyTho – VinhLong ( Lunch, dinner)
Leaving Saigon, our shuttle will take you for about an hour drive to Long An where we mount on our bike for cycling through longan fruit farms. This is the gateway to the mighty Mekong where we sample seasonal fruit along the cycling road. First stage about 30km on countryside road. Coming closer to MyTho town, we will turn off to a small village that making rice noodles, see how they made it and dry the noodles in the sunshine. Then we cycle to MyTho town and stop for lunch at a local restaurant.

Following lunch, we travel to Cai Lay where we collect our bicycles and enjoy a leisurely, two-hour afternoon bicycle ride on peaceful country lanes and quiet roads that pass through local villages and along canals. This offers you several stops on the route seeing seasonal fruits at the tropical gardens such as rambutan, durian, longan, jackfruit, etc..(and they do taste fresh, just off the tree!), perhaps watching farmers harvesting beans, visiting a coconut candy factory, a puffed rice factory, stopping at a market to buy fruit, etc…

Arriving in Cai Be, we board a boat to the floating market and then cruise over 1.5km-wide Mekong river to your accommodation. You can expect spectacular sunsets along the Mekong. Dinner at and spend the night in an eco guesthouse on Binh Hoa Phuoc island.

It’s good to have a small rucksack/bumbag with really just the absolute minimum in it for a night away on the island- change of underwear, shirt, minimal washbag, phone charger, etc.. , as you’ll cycle and boat to the island

Day 2: VinhLong to CanTho. (Breakfast, lunch, dinner)
Following breakfast, under the cool shelter of the green canopy, we take a bike ride for half an hour on small paths, mostly shared with just pedestrians and other local cyclists and scooters, 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.


Day 3: CanTho to Saigon. (Breakfast, lunch)
After breakfast, we embark on a morning boat trip to explore the vibrant, bustling Cai Rang floating market, one of the last authentic floating markets in Asia swirling with hundreds of boats zig-zagging on the river, and also to experience more cruises along small quiet winding waterways around Can Tho. We have chance to visit a local rice husking mill, or a factory producing vermicelli, etc..

Afterward, we mount our bikes for another two hours pleasant riding under the lush green, jungle canopy in one of the most scenic areas of the Delta, passing through numerous rural villages alongside small canals, greeting locals (many of whom will also be on bicycle).
Following lunch, return to Saigon by our private van.
