About this Cycle Tour

The mighty Mekong spreads into tentacles and tributaries in southern Vietnam, making the delta fertile and the region one of Vietnam's highest producers of rice, vegetables, and fruits. Cycling through rice paddies, orchards, along and over a myriad of small irrigation canals will let you see this unique area of Vietnam.

Itinerary

Day 1

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.

Reviews

We just completed a 4 day Mekong Delta Cycling Tour and Wow!. From pick up to drop off it was so well organised and I would most definitely recommend this tour. Of course what made this possible were the tour Guide Ngoc Quyen (Vicki) and the bus driver Mr Phuong. They were attentive to our every need and adapted the route to fit the group cycling levels without compromising the promised 150km distance.Every day was different in scenery and we experienced Vietnam as no bus tour can give you. Simply loved it and will most certainly be back for more. Especially if we were to have the same tour guide again.To manage expectations be prepared to live a bit local on especially the first night but it as still an amazing experience. The Ba Linh family were great hosts. It is not a tough cycle route as it is very flat but for novices the average of 40km a day can be tiring especially as the humidity and heat are oppressive but that is what we signed up for and it met with our expectation. I could not wish for a better way to see the country or to have a holiday.

We really enjoyed the guides and driver, They all really went out of their way to accommodate and tailor the trip to our needs and desires.

An outstanding experience for biking, scenery, culture and food. Our guide, Tu Xuyen, was a superstar.
