What’s the best way to explore South East Asia? From a bicycle, of course! With the wind in your (helmet-covered) hair and the tropical breeze on your face, this 13-day cycling adventure will take you through Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand. Cycle out of busy Ho Chi Minh City and venture through the Mekong Delta, past riverside villages and alongside paddies. From bustling city streets, experience local culture in rural villages and rub shoulders with your hosts at a local homestay in the Mekong Delta. Walk and cycle around the UNESCO World Heritage site of the ancient Angkor complex and see countless temples, rice fields and villages as you uncover new landscapes. After long days of riding (with an average of 60 km a day), you’re sure to work up an appetite for the region’s best food (and a couple of cold beers) – it’s all about balance, right?

Why you'll love this trip
  • Walk and cycle through the ancient Angkor Wat complex – a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of the most important archaeological sites in South East Asia. Covered in lush greenery, you’ll explore various temples on two legs and two feet!
  • Cycle through ever changing landscapes, rice paddies and small villages through Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand – the best way to explore local life is on the back of a bicycle, after all!
  • Indulge in all your Southeast Asian favourites – this region is famous for its delicious cuisine for a reason! After days of cycling, you’ll work up an appetite for countless dishes of Bahn mi, pho, fish amok and pad Thai and your leader will know all the best spots.
  • Explore the Mekong Delta with a full day of riding and then be treated to a homecooked meal by your homestay hosts – the best way to get to know the locals!
  • Wake up at sunrise to see the local Buddhist monks from nearby temples who come to receive food from the villagers in exchange for blessings. Then, spend the rest of the day cycling through the small district of Kabinburi.

For me, this tour was a great introduction to SE Asia. In Vietnam and Thailand, you won't see any real 'must-see' sights, but the scenery and cycling in less touristy regions are exactly what makes this trip so special. The transition between each country and the change of crew was always excellent. This is a truly wonderful trip.

What an amazing bicycle ride, especially in the Mekong Delta & around Angkor. The trip is full of activity through 3 countries. Leader Seen & staff in the 3 countries unbelievably professional, providing outstanding service & care (& fun). It was extremely hot (April) but this was taken into account with regular stops, drinks, ice & snacks. The included food & accommodations excellent. I thoroughly recommend this trip - loved it!

Cycling from Ho Chi Minh City to the outskirts of Bangkok was an unforgettable journey. Our guides were a wealth of knowledge, leading us on Trek bikes in excellent condition. The trip was well organized, offering a good balance of cycling and cultural immersion. Venturing deep into the Mekong Delta and other off-beat paths, we explored hidden areas inaccessible to the tour bus crowds. I recommend this trip to all bike riding enthusiasts seeking a more authentic adventure.
