Description

DAY1 HO CHI MINH - BEN TRE – VINH LONG (60KM CYCLING) (L,D)
8:00am you will transfer a couple of hours out of Ho Chi Minh City to my Tho, crossing the Mekong river by the biggest suspension bridge over the Mekong rive. Other side is Ben Tre – the gateway of the Mekong delta. Today’s ride will lead you right into the heart of the rural Mekong. The cycling begins after the bridge journey across the Tien River at My Tho. The route takes you through narrow roads and lanes, past banana plantations, fields of sugar cane, through the lush green landscape of the delta, crossing rivers and canals by numerous, ubiquitous, fascinating ferries. A section of biking cuts off road onto gravel and dirt lanes, and weaves around hamlets, across water channels, and through quiet dense vegetation. This makes for superb biking.
Overnight in Vinh Long island.
