Instruction

Vibrant and diverse aren't necessarily words that have come to define Mekong today, yet they perfectly describe the southern province of Tien Giang. Graced with spectacular natural landscapes, diverse cultures, and clean air, Tien Giang offers the perfect mix of great cycling and local flavor.

Can Tho is definitely one of the most ethnically fascinating and scenically stunning province in all of Mekong Delta. Home to 25 of China's minority groups and over half of all Mekong River's plant and animal species, it is easy to understand why Mekong is highly favored by all kinds of travelers.

Cycling through this charming southern province will expose you to a fascinating history, breathtaking scenery, ancient architecture and diverse cultures. The old houses and cobbled streets will be accented by the colorful attire of ethnic tribes. The scenery will be dotted by snow capped mountains, terraced rice fields, green forests, and raging rivers. Your Mekong Cycling 3 days are filled with jaw-dropping scenery and enough culture to fill even the most culturally starved traveler.

Day 2: Tra Vinh - Can Tho.

Tra Vinh is small town and it is not touristy destination for tourists traveling by bus. So it is really quiet at night. After 8:30 pm everything is seem to be closed and almost sleep. Tra Vinh province is considered the homeland to Khmer and there are numerous Khmer temples in the province. A full day cycling of today is a chance you are not only learning cultures but also cycling on deeply to traditional villages of Khmer, stop and visit some thatch houses, experience the ways of living and visit some colorful temples on our way cycling to through Tieu Can to Cau Ke. After we have lunch in town, a fantastic bicycling begins after just half an hour transfer by van/bus to Vinh Xuan. We continue explore beautiful countryside villages by cycling along canals, rivers fruit orchards and through rice paddy fields. We end up cycle and get on van/bus to Can Tho to check in hotel.

Experienced Profile


Flexible Mekong Cycling Route: It has an average 50km on the bicycle, but it will divide into many beautiful loops that you can choose biking or staying with our member support to be relaxed while the others finish biking.

Used to be a Swift Boat Base in 1966s, and second home of a famous story writer Marguerite Duras, SaDec Town has become a beautiful destination in Mekong Delta for 5 years. During that time, CaiRang floating market in Can Tho is also listed as one of the top 10 most interesting places in Vietnam.

The best way to explore Mekong Delta is to take a cycling tour from Saigon. Obviously, there are numerous great places over the whole region of Mekong Delta and you cannot visit them all. Within 3 days, we would like to introduce a biking loop that covers most of the beauties via TanAn, MyTho, BenTre, AnBinh, SaDec, LongXuyen, CanTho, VinhLong, CaiBe.
