1 day Mekong Delta by Motorcycle (220kms)
Tiền Giang – (approx. 220kms)
This is not the typical Mekong Delta tour. In this tour you will drive through villages and farms, witnessing first hand the features and environment of the farmer’s life. We will ride across 2 provinces of the Mekong Delta, exploring multiple backroads and a few offroad sections allowing us to see typical sights of th Mekong.
The Mekong Delta is a system of rivers crossing the southwestern tip of Vietnam. It is called the rice basket of Indochina because of its fertility and capacity to grow enough crops and paddy fields to feed the nation. In this tour we will take several bridges and ferries as roads by land are not sufficient to cover the territory.
- Experience Vietnamese culture in the Mekong Delta
- Drive on a mixture of road and small back lanes
- Off the tourist trail and into unique areas of the Mekong
- Delicious local foods (mainly seafood)
We will eat the local food which is unavailable in other regions of the country.
The food served will be typical dishes of the Mekong such as salty river fish grilled with local spices, vegetable and pork rolls with fish sauce, diversified vegetables and of course fruit platters varying depending on the season.
*Vegetarian food will need to be pre-booked. However, neither vegan nor
gluten-free options are possible.
