CYCLING MEKONG DELTA ( 5days)

Cycling in the Mekong Delta lets you see a part of Vietnam that is quite unique. This area is known as the "bread bowl" of Vietnam and boasts flat and lush scenery, quite unlike any thing else you will see in Vietnam. The rich soil makes the Mekong Delta a fruitful production area for rice coconut, sugar cane, all manner of fruits and vegetables.

The adventure starts with a ride from Cai Lay to Cai Be on the quiet back roads, lunching on an island before staying with a local family. We enjoy boat journeys as well as riding by orchards and seeing Vietnamese life by the river. Day three takes us through the Khmer area and we see much evidence of this with the architecture and the many Khmer people who populate this area. The last day we take in the Phong Dien floating market and many of the cottage industries before we head back to Saigon in the afternoon.

 

TRIP HIGHLIGHTS

Two of  trip covers a little over 170- 400 kilometers on well surfaced roads. The daily distances are not too long and the terrain is gentle so this trip suitable for most people, but it's advisable to have a modicum of fitness to enjoy the riding! Fast cyclists can ride at their own pace, as detailed directions are available from the tour leader. Our route is designed to take us off the main roads as much as possible
