VietnamRider Travel Motorbike Tour Vietnam Itinerary

Overview

  • Bike: rental bike
  • Terrain: small back roads and off-roads
  • Mileage: 480 kilometers / 298 miles
  • Daily rides: 160 kilometers / 99 miles

Day 1: The coconut religion (180 kilometers / 112 miles)

In only 20 minutes, your tour leader will help you to travel from the busy center of Saigon to the countryside by small roads. Then, travel about 50 kilometers (31 miles) by off-road through the rice fields. Along the way, you can see the dragon fruits farms and the 200-year-old temple.

Do 4 boat trips to explore the countryside in My Tho and Bến Tre. This route is not in any guidebooks. You will do a homestay with a local family in the countryside in Mekong Delta. Enjoy the special cooking class and traditional Vietnamese dinner.

Day 2: The old Cambodian land (150 kilometers / 93 miles)

Travel by small roads from Tien Giang to the old land of Khmer Krom. Khmer Krom are ethnic Khmer who inhabit Kampuchea Krom, an area in Southern Vietnam that was once part of the Khmer Empire.

Among the Khmer Krom, the belief is held that they are the descendants of ancient Funan, the core of Suvarnabhumi which covered a vast extent of Southeast Asia including present day Cambodia, Southern Vietnam, Thailand, Laos, Burma, Malaya, Sumatra, and other parts of Indonesia.

Do boat trips to explore this region, visit 1,000-year-old Cambodian temples, and visit the Cambodian villages. Stay overnight at a 2-star hotel in the city or do homestay (again with cooking class and traditional Vietnamese dinner with locals) in the countryside of Mekong Delta.

Day 3: Cambodia border (150 kilometers / 93 miles)

Wake up at 6:00 for a boat trip to explore the famous floating market, Cái Răng. Farmers from the region bring their goods, fruits, and vegetables mainly to the markets and sell them to local dealers. These dealers sell the products to shops in the neighboring towns and to wholesale dealers from the big towns.

All big boats have a pole. Each wholesaler hangs the goods he buys or sells on this pole. This way, people on small boats know where they have to go from a certain distance. On the floating markets, you will not only find people buying and selling goods, you will also find floating restaurants, floating bars, floating gas stations, and many other floating shops. Here, canals are the easiest and fastest way of transportation.

Continue to travel by the small roads to the border where this road is not in any guide books. You will not use the normal highway or big roads with busy traffic. On the way, you can visit the Victim Memorial of the Khmer Rouge. In 1979, the Khmer Rouge came and killed over 4,000 Vietnamese people in the local villages in Southwest Vietnam. Arrive in Chau Doc and check in at your hotel. You can book the boat trip to Cambodia on the next day. End of the tour.
