Full description
Day 1: Ho Chi Minh City to Mo Cay Nam, 170 km.
In the morning your guide will meet you at the meeting point, where you’ll pick up your bike and have a quick briefing on the tour. After the briefing, you’ll leave the city heading south to Can Giuoc and Go Cong. Along the way, you’ll drive through green rice paddies, over quiet rivers and past scenes of local daily life. Lunch is served in a local restaurant set on stilts above a muddy beach. As you eat, you can watch the hundreds of clam collectors at work along the shoreline. After lunch, you’ll drive along the river in the direction of Ben Tre, an area known as the kingdom of coconuts. A narrow jungle path takes you to a homestay on the river, where you can relax amid nature or try your hand at fishing before enjoying a delicious Vietnamese dinner.

Day 2: Mo Cay Nam to Ho Chi Minh City, 150km.
The day begins with breakfast at the homestay, after which you’ll take a stroll through the town’s morning market, and stop inside a workshop where women craft hand-made brooms for use all around southern Vietnam. From Mo Cay, you’ll drive 25 kilometers to the Ben Tre Wharf and take a boat to the main coconut farming and production area. Situated on a branch of the Mekong River, the people of Ben Tre make their living by manufacturing coconut products. At one of the coconut processing plants, you’ll witness each stage of the coconut’s journey, from husking to shaving and washing, to the creation of a wide range of products such as oil, candles and even kitchen utensils. You’ll take a short walk to a local mat-weaving workshop before stopping for lunch in a traditional Mekong Delta house.

After lunch, you’ll continue the tour of Ben Tre at a brick factory, and have a look around the enormous kilns where the bricks are fired. You return to the bikes on a scenic boat ride and begin the drive back to Ho Chi Minh City around 3:00 PM. The tour ends at the same meeting point where it all began at 6 PM.
