Cycling tours are without doubt one of the best ways to really experience a country, especially in Asia where biking for leisure is fast becoming a pursuit of the masses. Whereas in a car you are limited to a set path and sometimes restrictive access to where you can stop, cyclists enjoy the freedom of accessibility combined with a gentle pace making sight-seeing and attraction spotting easier…not to mention the superb ability to get off the beaten path and explore.
Two of the many biking tours that we offer, Cycle of Life: Explore the Mekong and Angkor Adventure: Trek and Bike, allow those benefits and more. Suitable for cyclists of any ability, Backyard Travel cycling tours allow you the wonderful balance of relatively effortless movement combined with a serene pace and ample opportunity for exploration.
The ‘Cycle of Life: Explore the Mekong’ tour allows a picturesque exploration of one of the world’s most fascinating waterways, riding through lush waterways and vast green rice fields of Cai Be and Can Tho in Vietnam. Moving at a pace decided only by the cyclist, the guided tour passes by picturesque scenery, rolling over wooden bridges and passing by riverside life. The options for stopping are abound, with numerous Khmer temples along the route.
Likewise, the ‘Angkor Adventure: Trek and Bike’ tour Backyard Travel offer includes the serene opportunity to feel the wind in your hair as you glide along a route packed with temples like Beng Mealea and the hidden temples of Phnom Kulen in the Cambodian city of Angkor Thom. Immersed absolutely in nature, you’ll feel like an intrepid adventurer as you peddle your way through some of the world’s most magnificent scenery.
