Rambling Mekong Delta Bike Tour

  • Ride through the interior trails of Mekong Delta and live the life around it.
  • A land full of copious experiences like great food, hearty smiles and pristine landscapes.

Enjoy the best of Mekong on this spectacular winding loop through the rural landscape of the Mekong Delta. Life here is brimming with fulness of fish farming, coconut plantations, lush paddy fields, and the tranquility of rural delta life.

The terrain is absolutely flat and we get to share interior narrow trails with local people either riding typical french bikes or 2-wheelers, criss-cross the rivers in local ferries, and ride over a multitude of bridges. The amazing stops along the way such as the coconut candy factory,  and anecdotes shared by our local guide only complement the ride further. The region here is the epitome of slow life and the only way to experience this is on your bike!

Brilliant way of seeing the real countryside. Our guide was absolutely fantastic and the scenery was stunning. We loved our bike tour and would recommend it to anyone wanting to see the rural villages and real countryside. A good alternative to the big tourist cities.

Mekong Delta

We toured the back roads in the Mekong Delta. We loves the friendly people, the beautiful shaded paths, the village way of life that could only be seen from the ground level. It was a very memorable tour that endeared Vietnam to us in our hearts forever.
