    Meandering Mekong Delta (VNCY07) 5 Days
    Itineraries: 5 Days cycling trip - Saigon-Travinh-Cantho-Longxuyen-Chau Doc-Saigon (USD519 PER PERSON)

    Brief Itinerary:

    Day 1:  Ho Chi Minh-Mytho-Travinh (50km+ cycling)
    VNCY21
    After breakfast you will transfer a couple of hours out of Ho Chi Minh City to Mytho– the gateway of the Mekong delta. Today’s ride will lead you right into the heart of the rural Mekong. The cycling begins after the ferry journey across the Tien River at Mytho. The route takes you through narrow roads and lanes, past banana plantations, fields of sugar cane, through the lush green landscape of the delta, crossing rivers and canals by numerous, ubiquitous, fascinating ferries. A section of biking cuts off road onto gravel and dirt lanes, and weaves around hamlets, across water channels, and through quiet dense vegetation. This makes for superb biking. A final ferry across the gaping expanse of Cochien river leads us to Travinh, a pretty tree lined town with a large population of ethnic Khmer. Overnight in hotel in Travinh (L,D).

    Day 2: Travinh-Cantho(80km+ cycling) VNCY18
    After breakfast at home stay, the last short boat trip will be reached Vinhlong, one of the famous fruits town in Mekong. You bike along narrow country lanes, easy dirt tracks and trails. This is biking at its most glorious-through tiny orchards, witness colorful life along the riverside, pedal pass picturesque delta homes, pause to chat with welcoming villagers, clack across innumerable wooden bridges. Cross narrow canals on a local sampan, before finishing at the main ferry for a refreshing boat trip across the expansive Co Chien River. Ride final few km to the very pretty Khmer town of Travinh. There will be plenty of time to explore side tracks and trails as the cycling distance today is not far. This gives a great first impression of the “heart of Mekong”. Overnight in local hotel in Can Tho (B,L,D).

    Day 3: Cantho-Longxuyen(90km+ cycling) VNCY19
    Today’s ride is split into two sections and is a contrast to the previous day’s ride. After a very early breakfast, you will take a boat trip to the famous Cairang floating market before riding on a narrow paved road market to Phong dien. The route weaves through morning market bustle along the banks of the very busy river. Absorb the sights of endless cottage industries, timber merchants, coconut shredders, small docks loading/unloading rice, and tiny vibrant markets. You will continue by bike on the narrow lane to the main road, which transfer along the highway back to Cantho for lunch. In the afternoon, you will continue riding along a tiny road leading upstream towards Longxuyen. The ride ends with a final ferry crossing and short transfer to hotel in Long Xuyen (B,L,D).

    Day 4: Longxuyen-Chaudoc(50km+ cycling) VNCY20
    Once more, the scenery is completely different. After a short transfer to Triton, the cycling starts to gently undulate and mountains begin to loom as you ride closer and closer to Chaudoc. The presence of Thotnot trees indicates the growing proximity to Cambodia and the local people speak Vietnamese as their second language. This afternoon you will cycle to the killing fields of Vietnam at Bachuc, where Polpot’s regime massacred over 3,000 Vietnamese in 1978. The route loops round to Chaudoc from Bachuc along the border, or re-trace back to triton (depending on road conditions) and ride the rest of the way to Chaudoc along incredible country roads. Those with energy to spare can climb Sam Mountain for sunset! Dinner and overnight in hotel (B,L,D).

    Day 5: Chau Doc-Ho Chi Minh(no cycling) VNCY22
    After having breakfast at the hotel. We leave for the floating houses on upper Mekong river by boat where we can see plenty of catfishes, red snappers… breeding under right their houses. What is an amazing life! Then keep boating to visit the Cham village with about 12.000 people who those are weaving sarongs, hats…by hands as keeping their ancestral tradition. Walk to the mosques that Muslims pray and teach Cham kids in Arabic for a while. Cruising back to the Van for Ho Chi Minh City.(B,L)
