A two-day motorcycle tour to explore and understand the Mekong Delta.

When you ride bikes through the Mekong Delta, you see a beautiful area and how people live here every day. This place has been important for a long time, providing food like rice, fruit, and fish for millions of people. The Mekong River, one of the longest in the world, meets the sea here and divides into nine big parts. Then, it spreads out into many smaller rivers. We call this place the “Nine Dragons’ River Delta.”

    We hop on with our drivers to leave Saigon and explore the quiet paths of Ben Tre province in southern Vietnam. Away from tourist spots, we see how people really live along the river. We pass through villages, waving to kids and saying hi to women in traditional dresses. We also cross small ferries with vendors carrying groceries on bikes.

    Later, we take a private boat ride and see old-style brick kilns. We stop at a coconut processing workshop to learn how locals use every part of the coconut tree. Then, we switch to bicycles and ride through coconut plantations. We have lunch with local dishes like “Elephant Ear fish”. After lunch, we row along canals in a small boat to see more of local life. Finally, we head to Can Tho city for the night.

    • Distance: 200 km
    • Ferry crossing: 3 times

    The next day, we take a morning boat ride to the busy Cai Rang floating market, one of the biggest in the Mekong Delta. We’ll see vendors on boats selling fruits and vegetables. After that, we visit a market on land and a nearby rice paper factory. Then, you can choose one of two options depending on where you’re going next.

    Option 1: Destination is Saigon
    • Distance: 200 km
    • Ferry crossing: 4 times

  • Option 2:

    We’ll take you to the Can Tho bus station to catch a local bus (Phuong Trang bus) at 7:30 am to Rach Gia. From there, you can catch the Super Dong speed boat to Phu Quoc Island at 1 pm. We’ll have your bags sent to Can Tho the night before. Our guide will pack you a lunch to go, including a Vietnamese bread roll, fruits, and a drink. When you get to Rach Gia, the Phuong Trang bus staff will give you a free ride to the pier, which is about 10 km away.

    Whether you’re continuing your trip in Vietnam or heading back home, you’ll leave the Mekong Delta with great memories of the friendly locals, colorful markets, and exciting scenes you saw on this tour.

Our 2-week trip to Thailand was fantastic! Chiang Mai felt completely magical and Koh Samui was beautiful. We managed to have fun even on the rainy days. Our guides were perfect, very knowledgeable and a lot of fun, with great insights into the local culture. I've been recommending Absolute Asia Tours to all my friends and I can't wait to travel with you guys again! The coordination of everything was very well done.

Our recent trip to China and Mongolia was a great success. Overall we found Absolute Asia Tours services to be excellent throughout the two weeks we were in Asia. For us, Mongolia was definitely the highlight. We thoroughly enjoyed or local guides and drives and they were unfailingly knowledgeable, helpful and amusing. Their languages skills were excellent and we felt that we recieved real insight into this fascinating country. We were intinially drawn to the idea of this trip by the reports of the world class fihing and we were absolutely not disappointed. The fishing guide was first rate and we caught more fish than we could have hoped for - more than 25 each day - with the added bonus of being the only other people in sight for miles arround. AAT created a private ger camp for us on the Onon River and we enjoyed delicious food prepared by our chef in a beautiful unspoled atmosphere. They alo arranged for us to visit a nomadic family and spend time with them at home and organized a dinner with an anthropologist with expert knowledge of the region. AAT fullfilled their promise to tkae us to us to one of the world's best fishing destinations in comfort and style. We would be happy to travel with AAT again and will definitely recommend them to our friends.

Absolute Asia tours gave us a wonderful tour of Southeast Asia (working with sister-agency My Way Travel based in Vietnam). For our Siem Reap/Angkor Wat journey, our party of two had a private driver and guide named Jak, who was a cheerful and knowledgeable companion, explaining the history, culture, architecture and religious significance of the sites while keeping it always fun. We moved efficiently from site to site, and finished with a boat tour of the fishing village on stilts at Kampong Pluk on the Tonle Sap Lake. During most of our trip we stayed at top-notch locally-owned hotels, but in Siem Reap we were at the excellent local Hyatt hotel. Absolute Asia and My Way Travel our outstanding local providers, less expensive than name-brand group tours, and customized to our interests and schedule.

It's an unforgettable trip and I'll definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to experience the beauty of Southeast Asia.
