Cycling An Binh Island - Vinh Long

Our rating
29 Dec 2011

The quiet lanes of An Binh Island are serene and picturesque - perfect for casual cycling.

Note: The information provided in this review was correct at time of publishing but may change. For final clarification please check with the relevant service

An Binh island's narrow lanes take you past traditional delta thatched homes, friendly villagers and lush orchards and gardens.

The small village of Hoa Hinh, its morning market and colonial era church are well worth a visit as is the impressive house of Cai Cuong, the major landowner on the island during the first half of the twentieth century.

It's also possible to cover a lot of the island's highlights on foot if cycling isn't your thing.

Travel tips
Mediocre bicycles are usually rented by guest houses / homestays. The distances are very short so it's not a major issue.This is very relaxed cycling.
