Explore the freedom!

This beautiful route mostly leads you along small, quiet roads and occasionally even over very narrow concrete paths, between the banana trees and rice fields. The nature during this trip is absolutely stunning! You often cross the river with a ferry ranging from a small fishing boat to a large ferry that can accommodate hundreds of scooters.

The route leads you to the back garden of the Mekong Delta, where the mighty Mekong flows into the South China Sea. For many, the river is of vital importance. You cycle through authentic villages where you are surprised by daily life on, in and along the water.

Your cycling efforts will be richly rewarded by the many impressions: the activity on the water and in the countryside, the many villages and towns where life sometimes seems to have stood still, the colorful markets, the many mopeds, the optimistic and friendly people, the great food and fantastic views. All this will leave a big impression on you.

You often sleep in good accommodations. Even a few days at the beach on a tropical island is possible. You will conquer many bridges and bridges along the way. The route is almost flat and at the most false flat. There is hardly any tourism on the cycle route that we have set out. You are often are an attraction yourself to the local inhabitants! Our cycling guide will guide you along the undiscovered paths of tourists without any problems. You start and end in the bustling metropolis of Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), where you can walk around for days and gain insight into the history of this beautiful country.

This route can be combined with: “Across Cambodia” from Bangkok to Saigon.
It is possible to rent bicycles on this route.
You can also stay longer if you go to Phu Quoc Island for example.
