Most of the flights going to Vietnam land at Ho Chi or Saigon – the chaotic business hub of the country. Now, we can surely forgive you for gazing at the postcards with the picture perfect panoramas of the rice paddies of Vietnam, as you are surrounded with the nightmarish traffic of Saigon. These postcards appear to be selling the bucolic haven, enclosed by mist, that is nowhere to be discovered. The only one mist one will see there is the result of fumes that arises from the numbers of bikes on the busy road of Saigon. However, if you have more than a week or two, then you can experience the idyllic Vietnam in the glory of the Halong Bay, Mui Ne or Phu Quoc. If not this, then one day of the Mekong Delta bike tour can be the best way to experience the marvelous Vietnamese countryside.
An hour to two hours drive via suburban Saigon takes you to the My Tho, a significant market city and the perfect gateway to busy floating markets of the Mekong Delta. The Mekong River, of the city referred as the River of Nine Dragons or the Mighty Dragon of Vietnam, is one life line of around six neighboring countries in Asia that includes Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, China and Myanmar. The Mekong Delta bike tour also passes via temple cities, rice plantations, swamps, beautiful tropical forest and the boasts of a few of the most fertile and richest landscapes in this world. The other best way to explore this part of Vietnam is by joining the Mekong Delta cycle tour.
If you think that sightseeing is the only thing that you will experience on your Mekong Delta bike tour, then you might be wrong as the culture, food, history and local market all these things will surely offer you some mesmerizing moments for your lifetime.
