Mekong Delta day tour – Cai Rang floating market

Mr. Ninh arranged a wonderful trip for us from Saigon to the Cai Rang floating market. I tried to arrange a day trip to Cai Rang with other more reviewed Mekong delta tour groups with no luck. They would only go to Cai Be in one day, which is not the same as Cai Rang.  All in all, a great tour and just what I wanted!

Mountain To The Coast

Day 1.  Hoi An – Hue (160km)

Hopefully, you were able to take some time to explore the old parts of World Heritage Hoi An because today you leave and start your adventure. You will ride along the coastal region and pass through the third biggest city in Vietnam, Da Nang- home of the famous Cua Dai Beach and the setting for the Robin Williams’ movie Good Morning Vietnam. As we exit Da Nang you will encounter the lead-up to the Hai Van Pass, also known as The Pass of the Clouds. This was popularised in the Top Gear Vietnam Special where Jeremy Clarkson gazed In awe at the view from near the summit. Time for a drink break and a wander through the old gateway that still shows some of the ancient Vietnamese scripts on its archway. It is this Pass that was the natural border between ancient kingdoms in this region. Then the fun rides down the other side. Some care needs to be taken as the next part of the journey will be along the main transport artery- Highway 1. Today’s destination is Hue, an old capital of the kingdom and site of world heritage and cultural heritage structures. It is also a place where some fierce fighting during both the Independence War as well as the later American Conflict took place. Today it is a peaceful city that straddles the Perfume River and still boasts some of the most impressive tombs of the old kings, grand imperial citadels and bustling markets to be found in Vietnam.

Day 2. Hue  -A Luoi (180km)

Today you will depart the coastal regions and head west towards the mountains and meet some of the Ho Chi Minh Road. It wanders into a more remote area of Vietnam and gives riders a taste of some of the roads they will encounter over the coming week. There is not much traffic along this road but it is still best to remain alert for the occasional delivery truck or, more likely, some of the local farm animals that prefer the ease of moving along the road or its smoothness and warmth for a quick rest.

Day 3.  A Luoi- Kham Duc 230km

Today you will meet the Ho Chi Minh Highway. This was part of the road system that troops used during the years of the American conflict in the late 60s and early 70s of the last century. Today it is a concrete highway that twists and turns its way through jungles and mountains. It is a remote area of Vietnam that gives some extraordinary riding opportunities. There is not much traffic along this road but it is still best to remain alert for the occasional truck delivering goods to the remote towns or the occasional cow that prefers the ease of moving along the road or the warmth of the surface for a quick rest.

Day 4.  Kham Duc -Komtum (180 km)

You will leave for Komtum and ride more of the famous Ho Chi Minh trail. Be ready for major fun on this curved paradise as it drops into the jungle valleys and rises to the mountain ridges. You will have some stops at minority villages and a picnic lunch across a rickety bridge.  Again, not much traffic but remain alert. A must visit to the Orphanage behind the old wooden Church.   We also take time out Visiting and gifting local Sedang kids on Ho Chi Minh trail.

Day 5.  Komtum -Buon Me Thuot (240 km)

Buon Me Thuot is today’s destination with a mix of roads through towns and valleys. Watch as the locals calmly ride across, often 2 up or carrying astonishing loads, the suspension bridge that will scare the visitors even just walking on! Various inclusions today include a visit to a local museum and to Tea, Coffee, Kakao & Pepper plantations. With a special stop at the Rice paper making village

Day 6. Buon Me Thuot- Da Lat (210 km)

Today we are off to Da Lat- often described as the honeymoon capital of Southern Vietnam. Da Lat is also the flower capital and important for the fresh produce delivered to main cities. Relax near the lake and if you have enough energy, take time to visit the night markets that take over the centre of town after dark or if you have time watch the local K’ho traditional Music & Dance festival.

Day 7. Da Lat- Nha Trang (140 km)

You will leave the Da Latamid the bustle of morning traffic of this otherwise relatively sleepy mountain town. The road will take you through the greenhouse areas where the plastic-clad structures seem to take over any available space- this region is not only the honeymoon capital but also the flower and crop capital of Vietnam. The road sweeps and turns up the mountainsides and down again into the valleys. You can experience different weather from one valley to the next- be ready for temperatures that can vary by 10C or more! Then comes the extended descent towards the coast- this is where you will find some of the most fun riding on offer. The road will sweep, turn back on itself and reverse again for the next 60 km or so. Waterfalls dot one side of the road with steep drop-offs on the other side to keep you alert. Now with nearly a week’s experience on the XR, riders can begin to trust and truly experience what the sturdy little Honda can do for them. You begin to feel the pull of the coast as you ride through some of the last bends and encounter the warmth and flatness of the coastal plain.
