Vietnam & Cambodia Cycle

02/02/2019 - 15/02/2019

Cycling is one of the best ways to experience the diverse scenery and rural cultures of Southeast Asia. This unique itinerary takes us from the bustling streets of Ho Chi Minh City through untouched villages to the iconic temple complex of Angkor Wat. Our comfortable geared bikes, support crew and steady pace mean that you’ll be free to enjoy the stunning scenery along the way, with our backup vehicle available to give tired riders a break at any time. Our journey begins in fast‑paced Ho Chi Minh City, which we leave behind for quieter back roads to the Cu Chi Tunnels. Crossing through to Cambodia, we take time out in the charming seaside resort of Kep and laid‑back riverside town of Kampot, cycling through lush green countryside, fertile rice fields and small minority villages. We’ll have time to absorb the palaces, pagodas and French inspired architecture of Phnom Penh before embarking on an in-depth cycle of the spectacular Angkor temples.
