Start Time: 7:30 am – End Time: 5:00 pm (+1 day)
Day 1: Transfer to Ben Tre Cycle & Boat to Tra On
The tour departs at 07:30 am as we board our private, air-conditioned van for the 80km ride to the Delta. On arrival in the Mekong Delta your bikes will be set-up as you enjoy a rich local coffee or pot of refreshing tea at a small village cafe. Our starting location, Ben Tre, is well known as the Coconut Kingdom, and we will explore the many products the ever-versatile coconut is used to make.
Our ride start on easy, flat road through the shady canal paths and back roads, stopping along the way to see farms, flowers, waving villagers and fuel up on some fresh tropical fruit grown in the region.
Around noon we take a ferry across the Mekong river for a tasty lunch before driving to another boat stop for a relaxing cruise to the family homestay. After a big day of exploring you now have some time to relax and unwind before taking a walk around the village and perhaps trying your hand at helping a little with the local dinner.
Meals: Lunch, Dinner
Day 2: Cycle & Transfer to Saigon
Another great ride lays ahead awaits you today and you will be wishing your time in the Delta never not comes to an end, but don’t worry, it’s not over yet and there is much more to come!
After having breakfast we say goodbye to our homestay host and take to the bikes again to explore the nearby islands, ride canal paths and hop on ferries. An interesting fact of this region is it features many sites constructed during the Khmer rule of the Delta and today nearly 1.5 million people of Cambodian descent still call this area home. Following our two-wheeled expedition, it’s time for yet another mouth-watering lunch before our drive back to Saigon and drop-off at your hotel door.
The Delta area is famous for its flat, safe, concrete canal paths that take you deep into the region past welcoming and friendly locals. The route also features paved rural roads with lots of room for safe cycling. Take in the views from your saddle as you pedal this relaxing route.
Quality, well maintained GT mountain bikes with hydraulic disc brakes, water bottle and international standard helmet are provided. These are very capable bikes that are a pleasure to ride and able to carry you in comfort throughout the tour.
An experienced English speaking, local leader will host you on this trip who is well-spoken, very well informed, and charming. Our leaders are often cited as being the main highlight of the tour. We use local guides who have a passion for their country and are always well informed on topics ranging from history, politics, cuisine and importantly local customs and cultures. Our leaders will take pride in introducing you to every aspect of their country while keeping an eye out for your safety and comfort at all times.
An air-conditioned backup support vehicle is always available for tired riders and to carry your luggage. In the Mekong Delta, we are on narrow bike and pedestrian style paths and trails where the support vehicle cannot follow. It will, however, meet us at intervals of 10km or so and can meet us at closer intervals if there is an urgent need.
A delicious local lunch is included. Snacks, fruit and clean water are also provided throughout the tour.
The accommodation is as close as we can practically get to a homestay while still enjoying a sound night's sleep. We have a wooden villa in traditional style, constructed by talented craftsmen and situated on a farm where fruit and vegetable crops are grown. We are close enough to the village to get involved, but far enough away from the racket that comes from a typical community in the early hours.
