The Mekong Delta is the bottom half of Vietnam’s two rice baskets, the other being the Red River Delta in the North. This vast delta is formed by the deposition of the multiple tentacles and tributaries of the mighty MekongRiver which has its origin in the Tibetan highland plateau 2,800 miles away.
The Mekong Delta is an ideal place to explore by bicycle. The terrain is flat and the roads are well-maintained. Traffic isn’t too heavy, especially on back roads off Highway 1A. The biking trip is truly an opportunity to participate in the everyday life of the Mekong Delta.
Travelers can pedal amid schoolchildren, ride behind women with squealing pigs tied on their bicycle, or talk with men biking to work in suits. On this special trip, Travelers chance to ride through beautiful areas of lush fruit orchards, endless paddy fields and busy canals.
An indigenous life happens just next to the road in the delta, so exploring on two wheels can be a great way to get closer to it. Adventurous travelers’ll see farmers working their fields and walking their buffalo home in the evening. People dry rice, coconut husks, lemongrass and other spices on the side of the road.
Along the canals with the parallel evergreen orchards, travelers will be visited the local fishing and witness the daily life activities of indigenous people. Then travelers will come to the local pop rice, rice paper workshop, travelers do not only know how to make cakes but also try on and taste the warm one right after processing by the breezy river bank
