What’s the best way to explore Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand? 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 60 km each day, this is an energising and rewarding way to see the beauty and majesty of Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand.

Thoroughly enjoyed our 2 week bike trip through Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand. Good biking to temples, the Mekong Delta and the beautiful Asian landscape. Very well organized trip and the skill level and dedication of our group leader Seen Suwamin made the trip constantly entertaining, fun, culturally enlightening and safe.

Our first cycle tour - bikes were in excellent condition, we ate far too well and had a great time. Provided you've read through the itinerary and understood what this trip is (and isn't) you should also have a great time. As mentioned in previous comments this tour more of a cultural/sight-seeing trip while getting exercise via bike - which is not to say there weren't some long days on the bike. The nature of the itinerary meant it didn't give satisfaction of completing a journey as you are on and off the bus a fair bit to get between areas.

The bike riding was fantastic! Amazing scenery from the beautiful waterways of the Mekong Delta to the majestic temples of Angkor Way, plus plenty of lovely towns and villages full of smiling faces and shouts of “Hello” - Definitely recommend!!!

This was my second cycling trip with Intrepid and I loved every moment. It was incredibly well organised. The tour leaders were fantastic and really friendly, and the itinerary was great. The others in the group were fab and I made some great new friends on the trip. I can't recommend the trip more.

Best way to see a country is on pedals, with some decently hard work to earn some well deserved cold local beers after. Our lead guide Seen put this tour over the top with his humour, enthusiasm, engagement and shared knowledge helping us all learn lots about local customs, food and culture. Highly recommended!
