Mekong Delta Full-Day Bike Tour

Ho Chi Minh City, Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam

$150.00

The Mekong Delta is ideal for cycling. Our small group bike tour is fun & safe, riding gentle canal paths past small rice, cocoa and fruit farms, picturesque villages and includes stops to sample fresh fruits and foods of the Delta. Enjoy lunch in the garden of a private home and end the day on a relaxing boat ride along local waterways.

The tour departs Saigon at 7:30 am., by private van. On arrival in the Mekong Delta as the bikes are set-up you may enjoy coffee or tea at a small village cafe. Soon we are off riding through serene countryside on quiet, paved rural roads, past countless rice paddies, vegetable farms and orchards full of locally grown fruit.

The Mekong is Vietnam’s most abundant agricultural region and it’s also home to local artisans and weavers. We’ll stop at a small shop to see traditional woven mats and visit a nearby cocoa plantation. Chocolate in this region is world renowned. We will ride through two, very traditional local wet markets with fresh fruits and vegetables from the region, as well as the recent catch of fish from the local rivers and streams. Rice is still the most prominent crop and the views across rice fields are stunning. There is some riding on smaller dirt and paved paths, but the route is safe for even the casual cyclist.

As we head further south, rural roads give way to concrete canal paths and the vegetation grows more dense as the streams start to look more like the large tributaries of the Mekong. We will visit a busy the largest wholesale fresh produce market in the region, see indoor fresh water shrimp cultivation, and stop at a beautiful traditional temple of the Cao Dai religion.

Lunch is prepared in a private home with a beautiful garden patio for dining. After our meal and short rest, you will board a small canal boat for a relaxing journey through quiet canals. It’s the perfect opportunity to savor the diversity and flavors of the day. We’ll then board our private van for the drive back to Saigon.

Total distance is 28 k and we stop frequently for photos, water and snacks. Plus, you’ll be introduced to farmers and artisans along the way. Snacks, morning coffee, water and lunch are all included in the tour.

This is a bike tour far from the crush of tourists, where locals will greet you with surprise and delight and where you’ll feel a true part of this vibrant and picturesque are of Vietnam.
