    Our Bikes

     

    We generally use Trek mountain bikes as they have high quality, durable pieces of equipment.However, we also use others kind of bike depending on the grade of the tours and places.Please be advised that a certain frame model is not guarantee.

    We prefer the Trek mountain bike as it has been special designed to deal with different types of road and riding.Even on a our roadtrips, the asphalt can often be broken or potholed, and there are usually unsurpassed sections included, so  mountain bikes are the most suitable.The bike has 24 and 27 gears, which you can change easily when padding up hill or down trails.
    As the case of soft cycling in the country side, where the road is paved and flat, we general use simple Jananese pushed bikes.

    Tra Vinh

    Bordered by the Tien and Hau branches of the Mekong, Tra Vinh’s location on a peninsula makes it somewhat isolated.Getting there is straight up and back trip, because no car ferries cross the rivers here (motorbikes can be ferried by small boats).Western tourists are few , though there are several very worthwhile things to see here.

    About 300.000 ethnic Kkhmer live in Tra Vinh Province.At first glance, they might seem to be an invisible minority since they all speak fluent Vietnamese and there’s nothing outwardly distinguishing about their clothing or lifestyle.However, digging a little deeper quickly reveals the Khmer culture is alive and well in this part of Vietnam.There are over 140 Khmer pagodas in Tra Vinh province, compared with 50 Vietnamese and five Chinese pagodas.The pagodas have schools to reach the Khmer language-most of the locals in Tra Vinh can read and write Khmer at least as well as Vietnamese.

    Can Tho

    Can Tho has two big deltas, the Red River delta in the North and the one we talk about here is Mekong in the South,this Mekong delta region is formed by the various tributaries of the mighty Mekong River which begins its journey to the sea in Tibet and sinds its way for 4500 km through China, Burma, Laos , Thailand, Cambodia and Southern Vietnam.The Vietnamese name for the Mekong is Cuu Long which means nine dragons and this is represented by the nine exit points of the Mekong River as it flows into the sea.The land of the Mekong Delta is renowned for its richness.Known as Vietnam’s breadbasket , it produces enough rice to feed the entire country with a sizeable surplus leftover.Take a sampan ride that meanders through small villages and experience the simple lives of the Mekong people.

    Being the capital of the Mekong delta Vietnam, Can Tho is a thriving metropolis with huge streets, little action and loads of mosquitoes.Although Can Tho has its own market by the riverside, where you can get excellent ice-cream, the principal attraction would have to be the nearby floating markets.Being rather industrious, the centre of Can Tho is quite busy and noisy with motorized cyclos roaring  up and down the streets combined with throings of people going about their lives.The riverside can have its quiet moments, but Can Tho is also a burgeoning are a number of pagodas worth visiting, and for the trivia fans, Can Tho is the home to much of Vietnam’s fish sauce.

    Cai Rang floating market is situated about 8 km from Can Tho by road or a 20 km loop by boat.This market is quite  nice and sells a variety of fruit and vegetables and operates from 5 am to 11 am, though the markets are better the earlier you can get there.A cyclo from Can Tho will take about 11 minutes to get to Cai Rang Market.Another market, Phung Hiep market, is 31 km from Can Tho.This is the snake maket, selling a plethora of living, wriggling and often posonours snakes.Pythons and Cobras are sold here by people from the countryside who have caught them by hand, whilst others have come to purchase snakes for restaurants, medicinal reasons or personal consumption.This market is open from 5 am to 5 pm.If travelling by boat, you can add a dimension to your day by stopping and visiting some of the fruit gardens, which sell pineapple, rambutan and papaya amongst many other fruits.
