After a short ride to test that everyone is comfortable with the bikes, we will start our 15 km journey (9 miles) on the village road and explore the area.You will see rice fields, a noodle factory, and a boat making wood workshop. We will ride along a village path to Cai Son village and walk with your bike to cross the “monkey bridge” on foot. Here you may catch pictures of children bathing in the river and old ladies rowing boats to bring home fruits after the harvest.

Do not worry, we do not ride the whole path without making a pause. We will have a break at a lovely local garden where you can enjoy some fresh fruits and a herbal tea. The tour will end with a transfer back to the Mekong Tours Information Bureau after about 3 hours.
