Saigon - Tan An - My Tho

Our team with a private vehicle will meet you at your accommodation in Saigon and drive you to the countryside of rural Dist of Tan An. This ride allows you to explore wonderful countryside, charming villages, stunning rice paddy fields, and a lovely vegetable plantation. The combination of dirt track, concrete paths through villages, rice paddy fields, and large fields of a variety of vegetables allows you to admire beautiful scenery all the ways. You'll ride past local markets, primary schools, and local workshops. With many stops on the way, you can meet locals directly; enjoy fresh fruit at a small market by pathways. You can share spaces with kids going to school by bicycle and locals going to work by scooters. We end up our ride in a rural village near My Tho city. Then we get on our private vehicle for a short drive to Vinh Trang pagoda. After your guide tell you about pagoda, and you will have some photo taken before we take a boat ride to Island where we have lunch at a local restaurant by the river.

Reviews

Dear Ms Hue, I'm still in Vietnam, but it will be my last week here before I go back to Malaysia :( Anyway, here is my comment: This is my second time biking with Vietnam Backroads and Mr. Van. As expected, the experience was great. Although we didn't bike as much as I had expected, the boat trip through the canals was extremely fun too. I enjoyed the the coconut candies, the honey tea, taking pictures with the tame python, the sampan ride and the food. This trip was meant to be a graduation trip with my friends, and I strongly believe that it will be a trip that all of us will remember for many, many years. Hence, thank you very much Vietnam Backroads! If I were to be back in Vietnam again, I would definitely sign up for a longer trip and challenge myself :) Ms Hue, please pass my appreciation to Mr. Trung (spelling?) and Mr. Van. Thanks to you too for the great service! ^^ Sincerely,Wei Syn A day trip cycling to My Tho on June 4th 2012
