Disembark to collect your bike, and then start your cycling trip  through quiet back roads. Your first stop will be at  local  work  shop, where  you  have  opportunity  to see  local  workers make  local carpet and  learn how  it contributes  to  their  income. Continue your ride along paved laneways  and dirt  paths passing  rice  fields and meet  friendly  people  in  the village. You  then stop at a  local  family, who  is  raising porcupine  to get a glimpse of  typical family run business in this area. Sip tea and share their stories of life in the Mekong Delta,  an  opportunity  to  appreciate  the  local  way  of  life  and  Mekong  Delta’s hospitality.
