OVERVIEW ITINERARY TOUR DETAILS REVIEWS SUGGESTED HOTELS

Take the slow lane and explore a captivating region of Southeast Asia from the saddle. Peddle your way from Ho Chi Minh City to Angkor Wat in Siem Reap and give the local landscapes and sublime vistas your total attention and the time they deserve.

From Ho Chi Minh City you’ll ease into your journey as you move into the heart of the Mekong Delta region to see local, authentic life as you maneuver your way through a maze of rice paddies, orchards and villages, waving to locals as you glide by on two wheels.

You’ll follow the Mekong upstream, cycling out of Vietnam after visiting Tra Vinh, Can Tho and Chao Doc, making diversions to the captivating Cambodian coastline to take well-earned rest stops in Kep and Sihanoukville.

In the Cambodian capital you’ll balance an experience of the top cultural sites with an insight into local life, and also learn about the nation’s complex and turbulent history.

The experience-packed cycling trip climaxes in Siem Reap where you can investigate some of the most magnificent temple complexes in the world.

You’ll ride to and explore the spectacular temples of Banteay Srey, Tha Phrom and of course the legendary Angkor Wat before enjoying one last cultural immersion at the Apsara Theatre to observe a traditional ballet performance.
