Mekong delta cycling BenTre one day. This tour is available all year round.
MyTho and surrounding islands are touristy for big group tours. But the other side of Mekong river is tranquil and in pristine condition. With a bicycle, our mekong delta cycling BenTre will give you a great day to see this area and 4 branches of the mighty Mekong river. The total distance of this day is around 30km (all flat, easy ride, relax, many stops for photo)
Leaving Saigon, our shuttle will take you for about 1.5hrs drive to My Tho, the gateway to the mighty Mekong. Take a short break at Mekong rest stop before continuing our drive crossing the new Rach Mieu bridge over the main Mekong river to BenTre, a province that provides some of the most beautiful scenery in the Mekong delta, with lots of small winding channels lined with water palms. We start riding in back country roads, feeling lost under the green coconut canopy. We also pass Ba Lai river, a smaller branch of Mekong on our way, to visit local workshops making various products from coconut that Ben Tre is famous for, such as coconut candy, coconut pandanus waffle, sponge cake, etc….Continue our bike ride toward HamLuong bridge and have lunch break at a local home.
After lunch, take hammock siesta or walking through local village to visit a farmer house breeding fighting cocks. Then we hop on bike again for another 10km more to visit broom making workshop, a coconut husk peeling workshop. Our van pick us up and transferred back to Saigon.
