  • Day 8

    At 8:00, we’ll meet you at your hotel and then take a 2-hour transfer to Cai Lay. We’ll start our ride on beautiful back roads, passing through amazing fruit orchards, especially those with Durian. Along the way, we’ll stop to taste some fresh Durian, a specialty of the region. You’ll be greeted by locals with big smiles, especially since they might not have seen a Westerner, especially one in funny cycling gear.

    The ride will have different parts, starting with Ngu Hiep island, famous for Durian. It’s an unspoiled area with many small houses and very friendly locals. Then we’ll head to Tan Phong island, known for Rambutan. This area is beautiful with lots of orchards and concrete paths.

    We’ll finish the morning ride at Mr. 6 Ca’s garden for lunch. It’s a lovely orchard where Mr. 6 Ca will serve you his homemade wine, elephant fish, spring rolls, and various fruits.

    Highlights of the ride include small water crossings, fruit orchards, local industries like coconut candy making and pop-rice, and the chance for a homestay experience.

    After exploring the floating market, follow your guide on a bicycle to meet the ‘snake man.’ He’s a friendly and hospitable character, a typical person from the Mekong Delta. You’ll get to taste some fruits, and snake wine will be served.
