With a great ride ahead of us we head south enjoying the fresh cool morning air.
Almost right away we are away from the busy roads and on to quiet hard pack single track lanes. After a while we will take a well-earned break and stop at a very local shop for some delicious Pho and an energizing cup of local Vietnamese coffee before carrying on into evermore rural regions where the trail becomes flanked by fishponds as the main income generator in these parts and mangrove swamps. we press on over local ferry crossings, through villages, over streams, skirting canals saying hello to the friendly residents as we pass by.
Transfer from your downtown hotel and start the day at a great coffee shop where your bike will be awaiting you. Today’s ride begins by skirting the river banks before cutting up through the new city, enjoy the wide open spaces and the vibrant feel of the newly cosmopolitan area as very soon you will be pedaling past bustling markets along the riverside as it weaves a path through the city, there are many stops to observe local industry with local boat markets, stilt houses along the rural river and even a small boat village where locals bargain and sell their goods. We will stop to visit local Phu Loc market on the way before reaching to one of the last ferry crossings in Saigon. Once safely across the other side we continue our cycling to China Town. After a cycling distance of around 7 km, we will pay a visit to Traditional Medicine street where we can sample some freshly made herbal tea, your guide will help you discover the surrounding areas and local workshops. Stop for a lunch of traditional Pho Noodles at local food store and take a rest. Make a final visit is Thien Hau pagoda before cycling back through the city to the finish point.
