Enjoy an exceptional two-wheeled adventure from Vietnam to Thailand
What’s the best way to explore Southeast Asia? From a bicycle, of course, with the wind in your (helmet-covered) hair and tropical breeze on your face. Cycle out of busy Ho Chi Minh, through the Mekong Delta, past riverside villages and alongside paddy fields, and see life from a different perspective as we meet locals, experience their culture and eat lots of great food (you’ll certainly work up an appetite for it!). Riding around sixty kilometres each day, this is an energising and rewarding way to see the beauty and majesty of Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand.

Don't be afraid, you can do it. I was able to ride the whole tour even without cycling experience (but with average Fitness Level). A great itinerary and a great tour leader!

The Cycle Indochina trip is a great way to see local life up close. You can see, hear and smell local life... I took my own bicycle seat which ensured I was comfortable on the bike, others had brought gel covers, which is a good idea if you aren't used to hard seats. The pace of the trip is good and you don't need to be ultra fit to do this trip as there are no significant climbs, except for the 2km to the top of the dam wall on the last day (if doing the trip in the direction from Ho Chi Minh City to BKK) which is manageable as it is not too high or too far. The leader and other staff were great and ensured cyclists of all abilities got the most out of the trip.
