Saigon to Phu Quoc cycling Tour

The area is famous for its lush green and mighty waterways. Instead of living on the land, people here settle themselves on water. You can find houses, restaurants, boats, and floating markets along the river. 

Let’s find out more about our exciting itinerary!

Day 1. Hochiminh – Tien Giang – Vinh Long – Can Tho

We’ll start our journey by taking a shuttle bus from Hochiminh to Tien Giang province. It will take you around two hours to reach the rural district.

Once we are at the cycling point, you’ll have some time to get used to the vehicle. The first 20km of cycling will begin on the outskirts of Cay Lay district, through rural areas with ripe orchards. Here is where you first feel the fresh air of the Mekong river.

After having lunch at a local restaurant, we’ll take a ferry to head to Dong Phu village on An Binh Island. Then you’ll head to the next destination of your cycling Saigon to Phu Quoc: the Co Chien river – the main branch of the Upper river.

The public ferry will bring you across the river to Vinh Long town for a short transfer to Can Tho and stay overnight there. 

Day 2. Can Tho – Sa Dec – Cao Lanh

Can Tho city is famous for its Cai Rang floating market – the biggest floating market in the Mekong Delta, which for sure should be on your visiting list. By riding there in the morning, you can witness the unique living style of the locals. The vibrant market or houses on stilts on water impresses every single tourist. 

You’ll get off your boat at An Binh’s land market and continue your Saigon to Phu Quoc cycling tour to Sa Dec. As you ride on the footpaths, it’s difficult to take your eyes off the beautiful rice fields and potato plantations. The complicated system of artificial canals is another thing that will amaze you. 

We’ll arrive in Sa Dec at noon and have a visit to Huynh Thuy Le’s ancient house. After lunch here, the plan is to finish your day cycle by pedaling to Cao Lanh city. The local brick factories and a huge colorful flower garden on the way are the rewards for your eyes. 

Day 3. Cao Lanh – Chau Doc

Leaving the hotel after having breakfast, you’ll have a chance to witness the peaceful lifestyle of the local people. Get on your bike and cycle along the mango orchards, local markets, and small villages. It’s such a pleasure! 

This is the precious chance to make an admirable photo album with these stunning sceneries. Then, you can rest for lunch and enjoy your album. After that, come back to your bikes and continue your cycling tour.

Stop for a while to explore the Monastery, which was built in 1874. It’s the first Monastery building site in Indochina, representing French architecture at the time. You’ll spend around 30 minutes there before getting back on your bike and exploring the pristine nature on your way to Chau Doc town. 

Day 4 -5. Chau Doc – Ha Tien – Phu Quoc

Day four of your Vietnam bike tour is the day of wetlands exploration with Tra Su destination. You’ll ride on the trails in the morning and try boat rowing to visit the cajuput forests. The forest is the home of diverse types of birds, such as water cocks, cormorants, storks, peafowls, egrets, etc. 

The next destination is the Ba Chuck memorial – evidence of the Khmer Rouge’s crimes against local people. After that, in the late afternoon, the short transfer will bring you to Ha Tien. Let’s have a tight night’s sleep.

When you wake up, fill up your energy with a hearty breakfast. You’ll have a half-free day to discover Ha Tien town before taking a high-speed boat to Phu Quoc at 1:30 pm. Your journey has come to an end. Hope you’ve had a good time. 


Saigon to Phu Quoc cycling tour is what you should not miss if you want to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.
