Experience Mekong Delta 1-Day Tour – Mekong boat and bike

On this trip, we’ll take a boat down the Mekong River into the green and lush agricultural heartland of Southern Vietnam. Trying one of their crafts (weaving, cooking, fishing, etc.) and gaining insights into the daily life of a Vietnam farmer. Relax and enjoy yourself among nature and jovial local farmers are all you have to do on this Mekong Delta small group tour.

The tour includes a short cycling trip that suits children from 12 years or above. For safety reasons, we do not provide small bikes for young children who are under 12 years of age, as local traffic behavior is quite different from the West or developed countries. Children under 12 are REQUIRED to sit on the back of the bike. In some exceptional cases, Western children (ages 9-12) are taller than the average Asian children, she/he can ride a bike her/ himself.

7:00 AM
We will pick you up from your hotel for a two-hour drive to the picturesque and friendly Ben Tre Province where you’ll be one of the rare foreigners who make it here.

9:00 AM
We will make our first stop at a beautiful local market, one of the largest of its kind in the region, and watch from robust trading activities going on to everyday family grocery shopping. Don't miss trying a variety of tropical fresh fruits from the local home garden.

We will then board a cruise going down the Mekong River to watch the daily going-one of the locals, and then Xe lôi (a motorized cart, a form of local transportation that is more comfortable than the traditional ox-pulled cart) and continue our exploration. Ben Tre Province is a coconut Producer in Southern Vietnam. As such, our tour would have been missing if we hadn’t taken you to a coconut-processing factory and explained to you how the locals make a living from coconuts and the variety of products that come from coconuts (who knew coconuts have so many uses?). Aside from coconut, there are many other traditional ways in which the Delta provides for its inhabitants and we’ll go explore some more of them.

Then we switch to a hand-rowed sampan to go through the smaller canals (the equivalent of a back street in the city), lined with lovely local palm trees, live in natural sounds, and immerse into a peaceful feeling.

12:00 PM
For lunch, we will serve up wonderful “home-cooked dishes of delicious Vietnamese food”. And don’t worry if you’re a vegetarian, let us know and your needs will be accommodated. After lunch, we will come to the highlight of our trip – a 40-minute cycling trip through the charming shaded village roads among the friendly, welcoming residents.
