CYCLE INDOCHINA & ANGKOR

Venture on velocipede through Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam - a cycling tour that takes you across the highlights of the region. From the glitz of Bangkok to the limestone hills of Khao Yai in Thailand, over the border to the beauty of Cambodia. Ride past the paddy fields to the ancient temple of Angkor, and on to the reminders of a tragic past at Phnom Penh. Cycle into Vietnam and experience the life force of the fertile Mekong Delta before winding up in the frenetic melting pot of Ho Chi Minh City.

Itinerary

Day 1 Bangkok/Khao Yai NP

From bustling Bangkok, transfer to Thailand’s Khao Yai National Park and take a short ride through local villages.

Day 2 Cycle Khao Yai to Prachinburi

Pedal past monasteries and alongside paddy fields to spend a night in a rustic resort.

Day 3 Cycle to Sa Keaw

Inhale the fragrance from eucalyptus plantations as the ride continues over rolling hills towards Sa Keaw. There will be plenty of opportunities to stop and chat with the friendly locals.

Day 4 Cycle to Aranyaprathet

Ride towards the Pang Sida National Park and be rewarded with the chance to swim in the waters of the jungle-fringed reservoir. Refreshed, jump back in the saddle and take the scenic route to Aranyaprathet.

Day 5 Siem Reap

Cross into Cambodia and make tracks for Siem Reap.

Days 6-7 Angkor

Meander along shady avenues between the incredible temples of Angkor. Visit the vine-covered Ta Prohm, see the smiling faces of the Bayon and marvel at the magnificent Angkor Wat. The next day, cycle through pretty villages to the temple of Banteay Srei and visit Tonle Sap for an optional boat trip to see the floating fishing villages.

Days 8-9 Phnom Penh

Catch a bus to Phnom Penh, stopping along the way at Skuon, which is known for its local delicacy of fried spiders. In the capital, hear about Cambodia’s tragic history at the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum and the Killing Fields. Later, tour the Royal Palace with its Silver Pagoda, and perhaps hunt for a bargain at the Russian Market.

Day 10 Chau Doc

Travel into Vietnam and spend the night in Chau Doc.

Day 11 Mekong Delta

Take a ferry and boat to reach an idyllic island homestay on the Mekong Delta, known as the 'rice bowl of Vietnam'.

Day 12 Mekong Delta to Ho Chi Minh City

Stop by the floating markets, then ride through orchards and along the bank of the Mekong en route to Ho Chi Minh City where scooters pack the streets and temples stand defiantly alongside modern developments.

Days 13-14 Ho Chi Minh City

Spend free time discovering the many sights of this lively city. Perhaps visit Notre Dame Cathedral, see the Reunification Palace or pick up a souvenir at the markets. A trip underground to the cramped Cu Chi Tunnels is also a fascinating experience.
