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.

The best trip of my life. Bicycle is the best way to explore the mekong delta and interact with locals. Don't worry about your level of fitness, even if you think you can't do it all, do it anyway and sleep in the van when you get tired.

This trip was absolutely amazing. The Vietnam leg is quite physical so do as much cycling as you can beforehand! The Cambodia leg is more laid back and involves more sightseeing. I didn't use my camelback after the first half day as it was just too hot - plus there is plenty to drink at one of the many stops along the way! I did bring my own saddle, pedals and bike shoes and highly recommend it.
