Explore the Mekong Delta region by bike. Join this Vietnam to Cambodia cycling holiday!

You will definitely sense the difference between Vietnam and Cambodia quickly after you cross the border on the mighty Mekong River. Whereas Vietnamese land tends to be busier, greener, and more vibrant, Cambodian land tends to be dryer, have more wide open space, and give off a peaceful energy that you have to experience to understand.
There is truly no better way to explore the Mekong Delta region and the land that lies beyond it than on the back of a bike. The land tends to be relatively flat, but the narrow dirt paths through coconut plantations and the raised wooden platforms through flooded rice paddies will still provide enough varied terrain to keep any level of biker focused on the ride. Set that unique challenge with the breath-taking vistas the area provides, and you’ve got an experience that you’ll take with you forever!

DAY 2 - HCM - BEN TRE - TRA VINH

In the morning, riders will van transfer to a local cafe in the Mekong Delta where their fitted bikes will be waiting. After a short trip briefing at the cafe, we’ll hop on and start our adventure.
Riders will traverse numerous small canal bridges and admire the lush greenery of the area while riding beneath the shade of coconut trees. This view of the area’s agriculture will lead to a coconut by product factory, where we’ll take a short tour.
After lunch, riders will continue their adventure and watch the coconut fields give way to charming delta homes and villages. As we progress, we will continue on routes that are generally flat and paved, but there will be some opportunity to challenge ourselves on narrow sections through the coconut plantations.
We’ll end up in Tra Vinh City, where we will relax before enjoying a community dinner and an evening of exploration.
DAY 3 - TRA VINH - CAN THO
Cycling distance: 80km
Meals provided: Breakfast, lunch
Accommodation: Iris Hotel Can Tho

Whereas the first day of the journey was spent in the Coconut Kingdom, today we will see rice paddies take prominence in our landscape views.
In the morning, we will cycle a short distance to Ba Om Pond, an 800 years old Khmer architectural beauty, to see its famous seasonal lotus flower.
After that, we will spend the rest of the morning cycling through flat lands next to rice paddies and canals. This region is renowned for being the second largest producer of rice in Vietnam.
In the afternoon, we’ll van transfer to Can Tho city, where we will take in the nightlife and rooftop views from restaurants in the city centre. Be sure not to miss out on Can Tho’s well-known night markets!
DAY 4 - CAN THO - RACH GIA
Cycling distance: 80km
Meals provided: Breakfast, lunch, dinner
Accommodation: Hoa Binh Rach Gia Resort

Today’s excursion will be divided into two parts: the morning on water and the afternoon on land. Departing Can Tho, we will take a boat to explore the famous Cai Rang floating market and more of the Mekong Delta’s canal system.
After the Mekong Delta boat tour, we will head off along the river on paved and isolated roads where we will be treated to views of the region’s fruit gardens growing alongside the countryside trails. Eventually, the forested riverside trails will give way to the same wide-open rice fields we passed through on day 3. As we ride through this area, we often are the only people within view for kilometres at a time. It is peaceful, tranquil and a great chance to meditate on the value of solitude and community.
Riders get the choice to either cycle or van transfer the remaining distance to Rach Gia City..
DAY 5 - RACH GIA - CHAU DOC
Cycling distance: 80km
Meals provided: Breakfast, lunch, dinner
Accommodation: Chau Pho Hotel

After another filling and delicious local breakfast, we will transfer 60 minutes via our private shuttle to the seat of the Southern Kingdom of Vietnam as it was recognized 2000 years ago. We’ll visit a museum in the area to learn more about the history.
We’ll then set off on the 55 km journey to Tra Su National Reserve and Bird Sanctuary. The farmland along the way floods frequently, so the majority of the ride will be on raised reinforced platforms above the fields.
We’ll arrive at Tra Su in the early afternoon, when the majority of the tourists have departed. There, we’ll have the opportunity to walk along a floating bridge past vibrantly-coloured algae. There will be guided boat tours available through the shaded canals of the reserve.
Lunch will be served after this relaxing experience before getting back on your bikes for a 25km segment to our overnight location in Chau Doc City.
