Then you will have an easy and relaxing cycling along the meandering banks of the Mekong River, from village to village on quiet cycling paths where you could see farmers growing vegetable, chili, eggplant, water rice plants and fish farms along on natural creeks. A big surprise to you is an impressive architectural monastery on your way cycling to Cao Lanh. Then the ride will continue to explore the beautiful countryside villages in the wetland of Dong Thap. In late afternoon, a little ferry will take you to further side of Mekong Upper River before a transfer to Cao Lanh city.

Reviews

Anna Singer party from Germany

Dear Miss Hue, we are back again in Germany and again very busy in our companies.We enjoyed very much your country and especially the bike-ride in the Mekong Delta. The tour was very interesting and we saw a lot. Mr. Trung was a very good guide and we could ask him everything. He has knowledge about almost everything, so we could ask a lot. Everything worked good, the paths we were riding were fascinating and the distances were not too hard. So we can recommend Vietnam Backroads. Especially the Ba Duc homestay, which Mr. Trung recommended, was very nice. Please say thank you to him. April, 2014
