Cycling Tour Mekong 2 days
Routes: South / Sai Gon – Cai Be – Vinh Long – Can Tho – Sai Gon
Cycling is a great way to see the countryside and life of the Mekong. This program offers two days of cycling and cruising with ample opportunity to enjoy the energy of the Mekong.
Day 1: Saigon - Cai Be - Vinh Long - Can Tho
8.00 departure for Cai Be (2.5 hrs). On arrival, we board a boat to visit the floating market, then cruise across the mighty Mekong River (~ 1.5 km wide) to Dong Phu Island. We start cycling here under the green canopy exploring the orchards and daily life of local farmers. Lunch break on the island then a cruise to Vinh Long.
In the afternoon we’ll have 2 hours to check out the immense rice fields on our bikes. Cycle through numerous rural riverside villages before our bus picks us up. Evening is free time for a promenade along city’s quay. Overnight in Can Tho.
