Overview:

EXPLORING THE TOUR UNDERSTANDING MEKONG DELTA ON TWO WHEELS, YOU GET A UNIQUE PERSPECTIVE ON THIS SCENIC AREA AS WELL AS BEING A WITNESS TO DAILY LIFE HERE AS IT HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR CENTURIES.

Description:

Understanding Mekong delta, day 1:

Exploring the Mekong delta on two wheels, you get a unique perspective on this scenic area as well as being a witness to daily life here as it has been going on for centuries. This fertile area is where the mighty Mekong River approaches the sea and splits into nine very big branches and then into a network of hundreds of tributaries. We call it “Nine dragon’s river delta”.

Riding pillion with our drivers to escape from Saigon to the off road of Mekong delta, mostly through villages away from the tourist track and discover the real life of people living along this magic river. We take quiet lane ways and dirt paths weaving in and out of villages and fields waving to kids whizzing by on their way to school, saying “Xin Chao” (hello) to women pedaling gracefully in their traditional “ao dai” dresses, and hopping onto small ferries to cross the tributaries alongside elderly vendors carrying groceries on their bikes.

Later we board our private boat and cruise past some interesting places such as old style brick kiln before stopping at a coconut processing workshop where you learn step by step how the locals of Mekong delta waste nothing from the coconut tree in making a variety of products, handicrafts and candy. Transferring to bicycle we cycle along trails under the green canopy of coconut plantation before stopping for a pleasant lunch of local specialities, including delicious “Elephant Ear fish”. After lunch we will row a sampan along the tree lined canals to get a closer look at life before taking our private boat back to the pier and riding on to Can Tho city in Mekong delta for an overnight stay.

Understanding Mekong delta, day 2:

We continue to explore the waterways with a morning boat ride to the bustling Cai Rang floating market, one of the biggest in the Mekong Delta. As we weave amongst the anchored boats, we’ll see vendors line up their boats and hang fruit or vegetables on a bamboo pole advertising the goods they are selling. Moving on from the floating market we will visit an inland market to compare the differences as well as a rice paper factory nearby. After that it’s time to explore the land with a motorbike ride through farming villages and small lane ways on the way back to Saigon. We can stop as often as you like and will be certain to meet up with lots of friendly locals and we’ll stop en route for a picnic lunch.
