Uncover the hidden beauty of the lush Mekong Delta and savour the local cuisine on this fun cycling adventure.
Widely-known as the “Rice Bowl of Vietnam”, the Mekong Delta is famous for its fertile soil and agricultural production. Located just about 2 hours away from Saigon, the Mekong Delta boasts picturesque scenery where the mighty Mekong River empties into the South China Sea. As the river has a flat landscape, the most ideal activity you can do here is to explore the riverfront and the charming rural pathways by cycling. This cycling adventure will be the perfect opportunity for you to rekindle your connection to nature whilst embracing the local culture.
Before we begin the tour, make sure you gather on time at the designated meeting point around Saigon District 1. As the Mekong Delta is 80 km away from the city, we will be transferred there on board a private, air-conditioned van. Once we arrived at the Delta, the guide will conduct a quick briefing and bike set-up before we embark on our adventure. We start our journey by cycling through the quiet rural paths where we could enjoy the countryside’s iconic scenery along the vast paddy fields, verdant vegetable farms and fruitful orchards.
As we ride through the villages, we will stop by a small shop to witness the local craftsmanship of traditional woven mats. After that, we will visit a nearby cocoa plantation and taste the world-renowned Vietnamese chocolate. While we are at Vietnam’s most fertile region, a visit to traditional local market should definitely not be missed. In fact, we will drop by two local markets to get the freshest products from the Delta region. We will then continue our journey further south and cycle along the canal paths where you can view the dense vegetation and large tributaries of the Mekong River.
For those who are not satisfied with the earlier market trip, fret not! We will visit the largest wholesale fresh produce market in the region. Next up, we will learn more about the local agricultural practice at an indoor freshwater shrimp farm. We will also stop by a stunning traditional temple to discover the indigenous Cao Dai religion. After the fun sightseeing, we will have a short break and continue to indulge in the scrumptious local cuisine. We will enjoy our farm-to-table meal in a private home with a lovely garden courtyard. To conclude our trip, we will board a small canal boat and enjoy the beautiful waterway before heading back to our meeting point at Saigon. This full-day cycling adventure in the Mekong Delta is a one-of-a-kind experience you should not miss if you want to discover the natural and cultural beauty of southern Vietnam.
