  • Homestay in the delta and explore by boat
  • Discover delicious cuisine and rural life
  • Pedal through rice fields, local villages, and visit local markets 
The Cycle Vietnam's Mekong Delta tour starts and ends in saigon. The Cycle Vietnam's Mekong Delta is a Bicycle Tour that takes 9 days taking you through saigon, Vietnam and other destinations in Vietnam.

Departing the bustling city of Saigon, we head out to the Mekong Delta, the ‘rice bowl’ of Vietnam, to discover this laid-back countryside by bike. Travelling on mostly flat tarmac roads, we pedal past Khmer pagodas, rice paddies, lush green landscapes, rivers and streams, floating markets, and rural fishing villages whilst encountering friendly locals, farmers and tasting the mouth-watering cuisine along the way. To gain further insight into the life of this peaceful corner of Vietnam, we stay at a homestay and also travel along the delta by boat, just like the locals before returning to Saigon!

Review for another Exodus Travels tour
5 - Excellent
“This was our first group cycling holiday and our first trip with Exodus and it did not disappoint. The cycling is really well planned with great backup and the places we visited combined to give us a varied taste of this unique and fascinating country. We found ourselves in great company - the group really gelled and we had a ball.”

“This is an amazing introduction to India. A fairly short trip which packs everything in. Krishna Kumar our guide was amazing, knowledgeable, likeable and worked really hard to make this a fantastic holiday. Thanks Krishna ! I'll be back as they say.”
Review for another Exodus Travels tour
4 - Very Good
“Fantastic trip. Huge statues, more goats, sheep, horses and cows than you can imagine. A vastness that boggles the mind. The Gobi desert is to be experienced just to get an idea of the size of it. Living in ger camps is worthwhile too. You get to sample what nomadic life can be like. The local people were friendly and open to us visiting their ger homes, and we were offered goats cheese, fermented milk and simple vodka. It's rude to decline the offer! It's hard to pick one particular highlight but I think the Nadaam Festival comes out top.”
Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC), formerly known as Saigon, is an exciting and absorbing city where bicycles battle with lorries and temples stand defiantly alongside modern developments. Devastated by the Vietnam War, Saigon is now a bustling free market city where anything goes. The Ben Thanh Market and Notre Dame Cathedral are highly recommended to visit.

This evening there will be a welcome briefing with you leader followed by an optional group dinner at a local restaurant.

*Huong Sen Hotel or similar*
After breakfast, this morning we board our minibus and travel along Trung Luong highway out of the city for 2 hours to Rach Mieu bridge in My Tho city. From here, we get on our bikes on the other end of Rach Mieu bridge and cycle along the Tien river through the coconut plantations until we reach Ben Tre city. We then cross Ham Luong bridge to head to Mo Cay Nam with a lunch stop at a local restaurant.

This afternoon, after lunch we cycle along the canal and will see local people manually pilling the coconut skin or making the coconut fabric that are used in making mattresses. We get back to the bus for a short time to avoid the busy traffic on the main road near Co Chien bridge. We will then hop on our bikes again from the other side of the bridge and cycle along the river for the last 20km to Tra Vinh where we will spend the night.

*Cuu Long Hotel or similar*
We bid farewell to the coconut world of the Mekong Delta and cycle from our hotel through the territory of the Khmer people, that is also home to many of their pagodas. Today, we visit the Hang pagoda,  known as the bird-sheltering pagoda as thousands of birds, storks and egrets shelter at this pagoda after going out hunting for food during the day. We then will cycle pass many of evergreen rice fields. There is the opportunity to possibly cycle a little further (80km) today from hotel to hotel.

*Satraco Hotel or similar*

 
After breakfast, we get on the bikes from the hotel and cycle all the way to Bac Lieu along the beautiful seaside today to see how people live on the furthest east coast of the country. Shrimp farming or longan is very popular in this region of the Mekong Delta as the water is quite salty for any other agricultural crop or animal husbandry. This is one of most picturesque cycling routes we will encounter during the trip and there is several chances to stop and take photos. We end the day near Bac Lieu and visit one of the historic homes built in the colonial style as well as an optional stop at the worshipping place of Cao Van Lau – the father of Don Ca Tai Tu, a Vietnamese genre of music that he originally composed. We then transfer to Ca Mau where we will spend the night.

*Anh Nguyet Hotel or similar*
Cycling straight from the hotel, we head out of the town along Ong Doc river under a long shaded road. The route today follows a mix of tarmac and concrete roads, and the support bus and minibus will be able to access sections of this route every 10km or so for those who may wish to take a break along the way. Life is still very humble along this route but the locals are happy and optimistic; music is playing from local houses and there are chances to stop for photos and coffee or just for a quick chat with locals and learn how they nurse the baby shrimps and crabs. We then transfer onto Rach Gia for the evening.

*Hoa Binh Rach Gia Resort or similar*
This morning we take a short bus ride to Kinh 5 market in Tan Hiep then launch our bikes to cycle to Giong Rieng passing through many rice fields with home-grown vegetables and fruits being sold along this route. We make a quick visit the Phong Dien market, the largest fruit market in the delta that is housed currently on land due to a recent landslide along the Can Tho river before transferring by minibus to Can Tho for the evening.

*Hau Giang Hotel or similar*
After breakfast we take a short transfer to Cai Rang to visit to the biggest floating market in the area before transferring further out of the city to Dong Binh where we will get on the bikes and cycle to Long Ho. We cycle through sweet potato farms and past wholesale businesses and stop for lunch in Long Ho. From here we then take another short drive to Cho Lach in Ben Tre before launching the bikes again to cycle to our homestay for tonight. 

*Mekong Delta Homestay *
This morning after breakfast we board a boat to take a trip along the canals and visit a few local villages and their cottage industries such as rice paper, coconut candy and coconut brooms. As there is no cycling today, we aim to transfer and arrive back to Saigon in the early afternoon so there will be some time for sightseeing and to explore the city at leisure before enjoying our final evening together.

*Huong Sen Hotel or similar*
For land only clients, the tour ends this morning in Saigon after breakfast.
