Backyard Travel, the online boutique tour operator specializing in insider tours throughout Asia, today announced a spectacular new cycling tour through the little-seen riverside communities of the Mekong delta.
The three-day Scenic Roads on a Mekong Delta Cycling Tour launches from Ho Chi Minh City, from which point guests enjoy a chauffeur-driven ride through picturesque countryside to the town of Cai Lay. Here, the bikes are unloaded and it’s off on a leisurely ride to Cat Be, taking in bucolic sights from winding country roads before stopping for the night at a riverside resort. Day two entails a boat ride to a nearby island, exploring villages and cycling through the endless verdant rice fields of Can Tho for a glimpse of local life. After spending the night in a Can Tho resort, guests complete their journey with a cycle loop around the area, including a riverfront ride to the floating markets, and a pedal through the scenic backwaters of the delta, to the villages of Binh Thuy and O Mon.
