A journey by bike will bring you a great impression of the ‘Heart of the Mekong’ - the region’s myriad of orchards, rice fields, tiny villages, wooden bridges, canals, and local temples. Leave the bustle of the big city behind as you depart from Ho Chi Minh City southwards to the Delta. From here, quiet laneways and dirt paths weave in and out of villages and fields, and the local form of transport changes from motorbikes to pedal bikes. Small children whiz by on their way to school, women pedal gracefully in their traditional ao dai dresses, and elderly vendors carry their groceries on the handlebars. Join the locals as you start your cycling journey in the heart of the Delta.

Tour's Program

In the morning, you'll leave the busy streets and buzzing city of Ho Chi Minh City behind and drive toward the Mekong Delta by road. Upon reaching Cai Lay, unpack the bikes for the short journey to Cai Be. Pedal along back roads approximately 1.5 hours to enjoy the scenic views. Stop for lunch on an island in the middle of the Mekong before continue biking to a local home stay. Living in a typical Vietnamese house, with airy rooms and outdoor kitchen, they welcome guests with gracious hospitality and the experience offers a true taste of Delta life. The rest of this afternoon is free to bike the dirt paths surrounding the home stay. Dinner will be prepared by the home stay hosts.

Cross a narrow canal on a local sampan and reach the main ferry, traveling like locals across the expansive Co Chien River. The final stretch of the ride is along quite roads to the charming Khmer town of Tra Vinh. Arriving early this afternoon, there is plenty of time to explore side trails. Overnight in Tra Vinh.

En route, visit a local Buddhist Temple, that is also a school, and learn about the life of the students.
