Day 1: Saigon - Cai Be - An Binh islet, Homestay (20km) (L, D)
After driving out of the bustling city, we begin cycling into the heart of rural Mekong along dirt track and trails. Upon arrival in Cai Be, board a local ferry to An Binh islet, and cycle through tiny orchards and witness colorful life along the riverside. Pedal past picturesque delta homes, pause to chat with friendly villagers and have a delicious lunch of Mekong Delta specialties at a family run eatery. Stroll around the orchard. Head to the home where you will be spending the night. The quickest way to understand the locals is by being a local. After freshening up and if the sky is still bright, take a stroll to find out more about the neighborhood. Prepare dinner with your host family and guide, learn about their daily lives. O/N at homestay on An Binh islet
Day 2: An Binh islet - Ben Tre - Tra Vinh (40km) (B, L, D)
After simple breakfast prepared by the family, drive to Ben Tre. Stroll through the vibrant market before taking the ferry to the province on a quiet and picturesque road. After 20km, the route dives off the main road and there is an exciting chance to cycle on gravel and clay tracks through tiny villages. Cross a narrow canal on a local sampan, before finishing at the main ferry for a relaxing boat trip across the expansive Co Chien River. Ride a final few kilometers to the very pretty Khmer town of Tra Vinh. O/N at hotel
Day 3: Tra Vinh - Can Tho (80km) (B, L)
Get up when the rooster wakes you up for an early breakfast with the family. We can cycle as much or as little as desired through an area populated by Khmer people. Enjoy the cool air and breeze along the road and there are many photo opportunities, from the friendly Mekong locals and the farmers working at the velvet green rice fields and fruit gardens, to the peaceful scenery of the rivers and villages. Pedal to Ba Om Pond and continue to the ancient Khmer Ang Pagoda, a historic national and cultural relic, to learn more about the Khmer culture. We continue Can Tho with a stop at a local Buddhist Temple School en route to learn about the life of the students. Check-in at your hotel. Dinner on your own. Overnight in Can Tho
Day 4: Can Tho - Saigon (27km) (B, L)
After an early breakfast, we cycle on a narrow paved road to Cai Rang floating market where you can absorb the sights of endless cottage industries, timber merchants, coconut shredders, and small docks loading and unloading rice. Hire a local sampan to get closer to the floating market before driving back to Saigon. It would be a long drive and your guide will make suitable stops along the way for lunch and a break. End of services (hotel today is not included).
