Explore Rustic Countryside & Chocolate Factory in Go Cong

Be met at your location in the morning. To begin a day trip cycling to Go Cong after 1.5 hours transfer to the countryside of Can Duoc Dist, which is 45km southeast of Saigon city center. We will ride on a dirt track through jasmine rice paddy fields and small villages, passing many fish farms until we reach to Vam Co River, share space with locals on a small ferry to further side. Then we continue our riding on unique paths, a small trail alongside the river. It is a pleasant time to enjoy the scenery as you pedal your bike slowly through the farms of shrimp and fish. Then we will take another ferry to cross Song Tra River to Go Cong Dist.


We will stop at the local market to enjoy snacks and coffee before cycling through rice paddy fields to the farm of chocolate and its factory. It is a chance you learn about all the steps in the chocolate-making process, welcoming and seeing the farm of cacao trees. You are also could see locals make chocolate at the factory of the family. After lunch, we continue cycling on the back road to Go Cong. We end our ride and travel by our support vehicle to Go Gong, visit the ancient villa of former governor Nguyen Phu Hai. The house was built in 1890, the architecture blended with the French Roman style, but its décor embraces the southern Vietnamese style—a home comprised of 3 compartments, two lean-tos, and a large roof depicting Yin and Yang. We return to Saigon in the late afternoon.


Note: The ancient house of Phu Hai opens: Monday to Friday

Private Support Vehicles

We organize cycling holidays, cycling adventure trips and mountain biking tours. All are flexible with luxury, fully air-conditioned vehicles to support riders on the entire journey. It depends on how many riders are in the group, and the vehicle support services will be well-arranged to satisfy your travels. There are air-conditioned 16-seat van/minibuses to take up all riders, luggage, and a truck to hold all bikes during the trip. 

Every morning, the vehicles will transfer you out of the bustling city, and then you will ride to explore the stunning countryside, and you will back on the vehicles to avoid traffic in town when the daily's ride ends in the late afternoon. 

Every 20 - 25 km, the support vehicles will be waiting at the high road if you are tired and really would love to ride on A/C van. Your guide will escort you to vehicles easily because many country back roads are linked to the main roadways where keeping vehicles are on standby. 

Then you can relax on a support vehicle when others in the group can continue cycling as long as they wish! You will meet the others at the next point/ destination where you love to re-join the group and continue to ride.

All your luggage/ suitcase and day bags are safe on the vehicles and well kept by the company's drivers and its team.
