Mekong Family 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 with your family on this spectacular winding ride 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!

Detailed Itinerary

Day 1: Saigon to Cai Be

Our guide meets you at your hotel in Saigon at 8 am.

A shuttle transfer brings us to Cai Lay, outskirts of Saigon. Ride along a small creek to Mekong estuary past gorgeous paddy fields and dragon fruit farms. Arrive at Cai Be and take a boat trip along the mighty Mekong River and its tributaries to experience the daily lives of people who work and play on the waterways of the Mekong Delta. We also visit the floating market at Cai Be, and a family-run business producing rice paper – a key ingredient in Vietnamese cuisine. Break for lunch on an island at a local house, set amongst fruit orchards and bonsai trees.

After lunch, continue riding to our hotel in Cai Be where we spend the night. Seasonally, on the way to the Mekong Delta, we can enjoy the peaceful scenes of farmers seeding, ploughing, and harvesting the rice crop.
