4U invites you to explore a different part of Mekong Delta.
Offering an ideal opportunity to adopt the pace of local life, choose to slow down and cycle along the flat roads of the Delta, the region in southwestern Vietnam.
You may want to visit a farmer’s home, try your hand at fruit picking or explore the myriad of waterways on a typical small (but loud) boat as used by locals for their daily transportation.
This trip will provide you unique experience on your bicycle to off the beaten track of Mekong Delta.
Depart from Saigon for a 2-hour drive to the southwest to Cai Lay which is a part of Mekong Delta. Along the way, you may sightsee lush rice paddies and fruit farms emerging alongside the highway.
Arrive at Cai Lay’s local pier, board a charming wooden boat to enjoy countryside scenery and river life. Disembark at Cam Son Bridge where you start a leisure cycling trip into a deep Mekong Delta exploration. The ride is about 7kms on shady narrow village roads curving over tiny canals and past fruit gardens and sleepy villages.
Arrive at a private bonsai garden where you will engage in a casual talk with the artisan in bonsai. Learn about the preparation and fertilization for the land, along with techniques of how to identify an outstanding bonsai. Take the opportunity to show your skillful hands by creating different shapes on some bonsai trees.
Then, continue your ride to a lush orchard with diverse tropical fruits; enjoy a friendly chat with the owner while tasting some local fresh fruits. Then relax while enjoying the view from a small sampan boat as you are paddled slowly along tropical canals.
