Tour Pictures & Video


The Mekong Motorbike Adventure sends you to the Mekong Delta driving through small towns and villages where you can appreciate the real life of the Vietnamese farmer. You will see a local floating market not yet exploited by tourism (as opposed to Can Tho’s market) and have the chance to drive through a farmer’s island with small paths in between fruits, vegetables and fish farms. Every house and homestay visited will offer you a comfortable experience to understand closely the local culture. Very few of these locations are currently exploited by massive tourism; English is almost impossible to hear and foreigners are very rarely seen.

Tour Highlights

  • 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
  • Local foods and homestays

Accommodation and food

We will sleep at local nameless homestays, and drive through uneven and small roads crossing several paddy fields and crops. 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.
Should you want to be adventurous with the food, options such as duck embryo eggs, coconut silkworms or other specialties of Vietnam are also available. These need to be pre-ordered.

*Vegetarian food will need to be pre-booked. However, neither vegan nor
gluten-free options are possible.
