MKB 2D P4: Cai Be – Vinh Long – Cantho – Dong Binh – Tam Binh
Day 1: MyTho – Vinh Long.
Meet with our biking guide and drive to CaiBe. On arrival, start a short warm-up ride into a village with nice shade. Load our bike onto a sampan before a visit to a family workshop to learn how to make pop-rice and pop-corn sweets, how to cook rice wine, coconut cracker, etc.
Then, embark on our boat for a visit to Binh Hoa Phuoc island where we start our biking through fantastic village paths and fruit orchards, meeting with farmers at work. Lunch on the island. Continue to bike after lunch to explore more of the island before the ride ends at the ferry to Vinh Long where we meet our driver and transfer to Cantho.
Day 2: Cantho – Dong Binh – Tam Binh
We embark the boat trip in early morning to discover the bustling and vibrant floating market of Cai Rang – one of the most authentic floating markets in Indochina. End our boat ride at the An Binh market, just opposite the floating market, for a transfer to Dong Binh, to continue our biking journey. The ride takes us along single track with canopy leading into a peaceful Khmer village where we stop by a picturesque Khmer pagoda for some encounter with friendly monks. Definitely it is the most scenic area in the Mekong Delta. Our ride goes on along more paved, kind of bumpy, dirty roads along canal. Another possible stop at a family weaving water hyacinth into baskets, bowls… We arrive in Tam Binh to end our ride with. Enjoy our lunch, followed by a siesta on hammock and you might want to have a quick shower before the transfer to Saigon, arriving around 5pm.
