VN030- Cycling Mekong Mytho & Bentre

    1 day

Mytho & Bentre

MyTho and surrounding islands are touristy for big group tours. But the other side of Mekong river is tranquil and in pristine condition. With a bicycle, you will not miss a great day to see this area and 4 branches of the mighty Mekong river. The total distance of this day is around 25 km (all flat, easy ride, relax, many stops for photo)

Departure for Mytho, on arrival we cross RachMieu ferry and start cycling back country road, feeling lost on winding road under the green coconut canopy. The coconut palms that make BenTre famous in Vietnam. On arrival in BenTre at noon time, we cruise down the busy branches of Mekong and into a peaceful canal. Visit an island orchard, lunch break with traditional meal, see the daily life of farmers and try exotic seasonal fruits unique to the region. Enjoy a rowing boat ride along the small canals. Then we cycle to explore this quiet area, call on coconut-candy workshop and other handicraft workshop (if time permitting) before coming back to our van to drive back Saigon.

Cycling distance: ~ 25 km
