Itinerary of MEKONG DELTA CYCLING TO FLOATING MARKET IN CANTHO
DAY 1: Saigon – Vinh Long – Can Tho
After two hour bus drive out of bustling Saigon, along straight highways across green rice fields of Mekong Delta Vietnam, you arrive a boat quay where bikes are loaded to the boat and we start the boat trip. That’s the initial exploration of the Mekong river with boating along the river, passing by a floating market where fruits and vegetables are merchandised, and families live on the boats.
Further cruising will take you to an island where Mekong Delta cycling exploration is so tempted. That’s the biking along the canals with authentic local lives, across the villages by the small trails that bus can never go into, among the green color of the Mekong nature.
Stop by a local house and enjoy some food prepared by a local family here, possibly by a canal bank for fully get the cool feeling of the place.
After the lunch is a great biking along a huge rice farm by a small road where not many tourist can go. At the end of the road is an ferry where you can biking into it for a lift to the other side of the huge Mekong river. The moment on the ferry is a great chance to meet local people, have sunset shots on the river or just get relaxed with the scenery of a huge river.
10 minute biking to hotel is just for a feeling of achievement.
DAY 2: Can Tho – Saigon
Take an early boat ride to Cai Rang floating market for the best view of floating market in Mekong Delta. The local people go to the market early and we don’t see much if we are late. After amazing scenery of the market, get cruising further to small canals for more beauty of this water way. We then stop the boat in the middle of nowhere, start the Mekong delta cycling along the canals, over small bridges, with countryside roads, and with local people cycling to the friends houses.
After lunch, have a bus drive back to Saigon. End your Mekong delta cycling trip.
