Vietnam Bike Tours – Three Days of Cycling Mekong Delta
Day 1. Sai Gon to Tra Vinh Cycling Tour
After a hearty breakfast in the hotel, the cycle tour guides/drivers will pick up their customers, preparing for the cycling trip ahead and leaving the bustle of Saigon behind!
The roads will lead you from Sai Gon to My Tho – known as the Mekong Delta’s gateway. Here, cyclists will find themselves breathless at the stunning paddy fields and gorgeous sceneries.
Next, once you cross Rach Mieu bridges, the borders of Ben Tre Province and My Tho will show up. Coffee shops are littered throughout the streets, with a lingering fragrance that invites you in for a quick cup of joe. You can stop here for a while before continuing to Tra Vinh!
From here, the cycling road is a single track (meaning there are no turning points) under the pleasant shades of coconut trees. If you have time, let’s stop by some coconut jelly and fiber shops to buy presents for your loved ones!
Day 2. Tra Vinh to Can Tho Biking Tour
On the second day, our biking tour highlight will be cycling through scenic villages and exploring the long-lasting Khmer cultures.
After finishing breakfast, cyclists can start cycling from their hotels to Can Tho, passing seven famous temples of the Khmer people. Here, the tour guides will introduce the rich history of Khmer practices and cultures, giving insights into how these people shape their current society.
Tra Vinh has been regarded as the Khmer homeland, where Khmer people make up more than half of its population. Most of these people are farmers, which is why you can see numerous farms and monks on the way. The sight of Khmer children in colorful outfits going to school is also a wonder to behold!
Day 3. Can Tho to Sai Gon Biking Tour
What better way to conclude a wonderful tour of cycling Mekong Delta than by visiting the largest floating market? It’s not an exaggeration to claim that floating markets are among the most worth-it sights to discover in the Mekong Delta.
Cai Rang receives the most favorable feedback among these markets, incredibly popular with locals and non-locals. Despite opening all day, the market becomes busiest from early sunrise to 9 am, whose main items sold are specialties and farm products of Chau Thanh, Cai Rang, and other areas.
You can see huge and small boats weaving on and off during early market hours. The waterway turns into a lively maze packed with pineapple, papaya, bananas, mangos, and even products like cigarettes. Trust us; your photos and pictures will be amazing!
This article details all the wonderful views and activities you can enjoy during three days of cycling Mekong Delta. Skip this golden opportunity when you go to Vietnam, and you will regret it forever.
