Full description
You will be transferred by 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. The starting location, Ben Tre, is well known as the Coconut Kingdom, and you will explore the many products that the ever-versatile coconut is used to make. Your ride will start on an 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, you 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 will 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. The next day, another great ride awaits you. You will go by the floating markets for which this area has become quite well known, but as most visitors to the Delta will be headed to the chaotic main market near Can Tho, your hosts will take you to a real, local floating market. This is as authentic as it gets, with vegetables tossed from craft to craft and a little coffee vendor boat bouncing in and out of the gaps, serving strong, iced coffee. After taking some time to experience this explosion of color and activity, you will take to the bikes again to explore the islands along the canal paths. Following your two-wheeled expedition, it’s time for yet another mouth-watering lunch before you drive back to Saigon.

A truly unique experience where we learned a lot about Vietnamese culture. It was a very peaceful trip where We met did not meet other tourists on our way.
