VIETNAM SOFT ADVENTURE TOURS

TRAVEL & CULTURE “4-DAY MEKONG DELTA CYCLING” – VTN6024

(Daily departure on private tour, with fullboard)

**

Come cycle in the Mekong Delta, once Khmer territory. The region is known for its vast rice paddies, the huge plantations and the canals cris-crossing the land making it fertile and very unique. Visit Chau Doc, the bustling city right before the cambodian border, the busy port city of Can Tho and some other superb places on the way.

Note: Vietnam’s roads are among the most dangerous in the world, we avoid any highways and cycle only on narrow roads in the Mekong Delta through villages and along the canals.  For long distances we use the supporting vehicle. The tour is escorted by an experienced guide.
