Transfer out of bustling Saigon to Cai Lay, where we begin our ride to Cai Be, the gateway to the Mekong Delta. We cycle down narrow lanes, over canals and past banana plantations to our overnight at a homestay.

Day 2

Catch a boat to one of the Mekong islands and bike along narrow dirt tracks and trails. Witness colorful riverside life while pedaling past picturesque delta homes, and clack across innumerable wooden bridges to the Khmer town of Tra Vinh.

Day 3

There is plenty to observe today - fishermen, village life, temples - as we cycle scenic roads, crossing many small bridges, to Can Tho. There are many Khmer temples to visit en route as well as Ba Om Pond with its magnificent lotus flowers.

Day 4

Spend the morning riding to Phong Dien Floating Market and weave through this bustling place along the banks of an active riverfront. Absorb the sights of endless cottage industries before we lunch and transfer back to Saigon.

Did the Mekong Delta tour on 12th March, had fabulous time, Guide Hai was terrific the whole time and all travel, accommodation, and food was excellent. The other couple Michael and Geeta from Denmark were great company! Thank you very much.
