SAIGON MEKONG 4 DAY RIDE

296

Starting from Tibetan Plateau, the Mekong River runs through China’s Yunnan province, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam before it goes all the way to the South China Sea. The river brings life to any location it passes through, and it is such a favor from Mother Nature for Vietnam that by the time it reached our territory, it separated off into nine smaller branches. Book our Saigon Mekong 4 Day Ride will be your unique experience...

DAY 4: SAI GON - 180 km
Wake up at 6 am for the boat trip to explore the famous floating market; 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. In the picture you can see a local farmer with fruits for sale. All big boats have a pole. Each wholesaler hangs the goods he buys / 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 do not only find people buying and selling goods, you also find floating restaurants, floating bars, floating gas stations, and many other floating shops. Canals are here the easiest and fastest way of transportation.
We will continue by the small roads and about 50 km off-road; with some boat trips to cross the Mekong river and stop to see the Cao Dai temple, the dragon fruits farms before arrive in Saigon. End tour.
