Walk the bike down the ferry for a ride to Binh Hoa Phuoc island for a fantastic ride through villages paths and fruit orchards, meeting with farmers at work. Lunch on the island. Continue to bike after lunch to explore more of the island. We cross the mighty Mekong river again on a motorized sampan past a floating market before we arrive at a family workshop to learn how to make pop-rice and pop-corn sweets, how to cook rice wine, coconut cracker, etc. Get back to our bike to pedal the last miles along the canal of Cai Be before we meet our driver and transfer back to Saigon.
