Meet in central Ho Chi Minh City and journey by air-conditioned minivan to the Mekong Delta, south Vietnam’s agricultural heartland.
On arrival, enjoy tea or coffee, and hop on your bike. Don a helmet and after a safety briefing, set out behind your guide to explore. The approximately 17-mile (27-kilometer) route takes you along quiet paved roads and dirt tracks, past rice paddies, farms, and villages, and includes photo and snack stops.
Call at a mat-weaving workshop, visit a cocoa farm, and pedal around two wet markets selling fresh fish and other produce. Follow waterside paths along wider Mekong tributaries and visit the region’s biggest wholesale food market.
Stop at a shrimp farm and temple before visiting a family home for a homemade lunch in the garden. After your meal and a hand-rowed sampan ride along peaceful canals, your trip ends with a drop-off in central Ho Chi Minh City.
