Active Adventure

If one wants to get to know an area, biking is a real delight. Our biking trip is truly an opportunity to participate in the everyday life of the Mekong Delta. We can pedal amid schoolchildren, ride behind women with squealing pigs tied on their bicycle, or talk with men biking to work in suits. On this special trip, we ride through beautiful areas of lush fruit orchards, endless paddy fields, lively floating market and busy canals.
