The flat countryside of the Delta makes perfect pedaling terrain, and bicycles afford an enjoyable way to immerse yourself deep in the bucolic life of rural Vietnam. We offer a choice of different guided trips, starting from various hubs (including Ho Chi Minh City) and taking you to fruit orchards and farms, paper-making factories, floating markets, local rice mills and boatyards. Lunch is typically served in a village house, giving you an opportunity to sample traditional Mekong food in an authentic setting. Longer excursions of 12–18 miles (20–30km) may also be arranged for more committed cyclists. Tours may be self-guided or accompanied, as desired. The terrain is flat throughout and there’s generally plenty of shade, with regular tea stops at local cafes.
