Grasshopper Adventures’ New Cycling Day Tour Explores the Mekong Delta on Two Wheels.

December 6, 2015 in Tours by cipcipTrip

The “Mekong Delta in a Day” day tour is the latest addition to Grasshopper Adventures’ range of day tours in Southeast Asia.

Escape the bustle of Saigon to experience a region rich with tradition, picturesque scenery and the foods and flavours unique to southern Vietnam. A two hour transfer by private van takes cyclist to the start of the tour, from where they explore the region on rural pathways and canal-side tracks. An ideal area to explore by bike due the flat landscape, this is a highly achievable ride to anyone comfortable on a bike.

The Mekong Delta region is the “rice-basket” of Vietnam, but also home to local artisans and weavers. The tour takes visitors to see traditional workshops as well as farms, markets and even a cocoa plantation.

A delicious local lunch at a local house is included in the tour before a private boat trip on one of the river’s many channels and a return transfer to Saigon.

Clean drinking water, fruit and local snacks are provided throughout the tour and a support vehicle is on hand at regular intervals for those who feel like a break from riding.
