Instruction

During our bicycle holiday in the Mekong Delta, we had the opportunity to explore various areas with diverse agriculture, witness the bustling floating market, visit temples, and much more. With a van available nearby, we never had to bike more than we desired. Our biking guide, a knowledgeable local, was well-prepared with fluent English and took us on the most scenic biking routes throughout the journey.

πŸ‡»πŸ‡³ This 4-day Mekong Delta Cycling Tour is designed to showcase the eastern part of the Mekong Delta Region: 

  • Embrace the charm of exploring the countryside on bicycles, making this trip perfect for photography enthusiasts.
  • Engage in enjoyable activities alongside local farmers in their farms.
  • Opt for off-the-beaten-path destinations for a stylish and unique holiday experience, as preferred by most travelers.

According to our experts, this bicycle tour is highly recommended for exploring the destinations up close, allowing for a deeper appreciation of the local culture, arts, and antiques.
