Start your day with an 08:00 AM pick-up from your centrally located hotel in Ho Chi Minh city and head to the Long An Province in the Mekong Delta Region. After a 1.5-hour car ride, you’ll arrive at your first destination: a local monument that displays objects from the war period of the Mekong Delta Region. Here, learn more about the history of Vietnam. Then, visit the Orchid Farm of a local family – see literally hundreds of types of orchids from various countries and learn how the plants grow to adapt to the environment they are in.
11:15 AM, start the highlight of your trip: a bike ride along the countryside road lined with aceca palm trees, dragon fruit farms and endless rice fields. You may see children cycling to school and farmers harvesting rice and okra. Cycle along for about an hour before arriving at a local market, where your guide will help you buy fresh fruit from the street vendors if you wish. Enjoy fresh coconut water to refill your tank!
12:30 PM, visit Cao Dai Temple – a can’t-miss experience during the prayer session. Then, bike to a local restaurant for lunch, where you’ll enjoy a set menu of Vietnamese cuisine (halal and vegetarian food is available!). After lunch, cruise along the Mekong River on a motor boat to get to see the daily life along the river. Depending on time, head off to a local mattress workshop to see mattresses being made of reeds.
2:30 PM head back to Ho Chi Minh city for a 4:30 PM arrival.
