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.

What an amazing trip! We explored the three countries with a perfect mix of cycling, sightseeing, visiting producers, a homestay, and eating delicious home cooked food. The local people were so friendly and we learned a lot about each country. The organisation was spot on with everything taken care of. The cycling was easy, completely flat in Vietnam and Cambodia, a few gentle hills in Thailand. You ride at your own pace, there's enough guides for everyone to go as fast or slow as they like. The bus is always available to sit on if needed. The teams even stop the traffic for you so you're completely safe on busier roads. There was a kitty for refreshments which meant you had water, local drinks and snacks throughout the day. In the evenings you can eat with the group if you like but if you prefer not to there's no pressure. Thank you to the outstanding guides Chai, Rong, Hom, Loc, plus their teams, for making this the most incredible holiday of my life!

This is an excellent trip giving you the opportunity to really see the authentic lives of the people who live there. We were greeted by smiles and waves from families all along the way in Vietnam and Cambodia. Local meals were delicious and an authentic way to eat amongst the community. The organisation was incredible with water and fabulous snacks provided every step of the way. We had a new local team in each country we visited passing on their knowledge and expertise. They were warm, friendly and entertaining. I was never happier than when I was cycling.
