Day 1

Meet in Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) for dinner at the enchanting Temple Club Restaurant.

Day 2

Transfer to Ben Tre, the gateway to the Mekong Delta, to start riding down narrow roads and lanes, past banana plantations and fields of sugarcane, across rivers to Tra Vinh a pretty tree-lined town.

Day 3

There is plenty to observe today - fishermen, village life, temples -- as we cycle scenic roads, crossing many small bridges, to Can Tho.

Day 4

After visiting Cai Rang floating market, our first part of cycling will be mainly through the quaint countryside. After lunch, we transfer to Ba Chuc, visiting a Killing Fields of Vietnam then continuing loop cycling and some hilly ride before a short transfer to the hotel.

Day 5

We rest our legs as we boat it up the Mekong River to Phnom Penh.

Day 6

From Phnom Penh, we cycle on back roads to Oudong, a former capital of Cambodia. We then transfer to Kampong Thom.

Day 7

After a morning visit to the ancient temple site of Sambor Prey Kuk we saddle up for a beautiful ride through paddy fields and small villages to Siem Reap.

Day 8

We ride to the Angkor Temple complex before starting the Grand Circuit, stopping at each major temple area before riding back to Siem Reap.

Day 9

We enter the temple complex by a much quieter gate and ride into the countryside. We turn off the main tourist road to Banteay Srei, visiting Ban-teay Samre on the way.

Day 10

We have another break from riding and visit a floating village before heading across Tonle Sap to Battambang.

Day 11

We saddle up and ride south to Pailin along an undulating road, crossing streams over bridges and really get a feeling of riding into unchartered territory.

Day 12

It's a short pleasant ride on quiet scenic roads to the Thai border, and then we ride through the countryside to the beach.

Day 13

We have a flat and easy ride through mangroves, shrimp farms, and along the coast.

Excellent way to see how the locals really live

Keri BenderOctober 2018

I have been on several similar adventure trips(cycling and/or hiking) so my comments are based on a comparison.Firstly the accommodation was significantly superior on this trip. All hotels were clean, had functioning air conditioning, and en suite bathrooms with hot and cold running water. Several hotels also had pools which is very welcome after a day of cycling. Food was also very good, and if anything portions were too large because of the enthusiasm of your guides to let us taste different dishes. The cycling was in line with the grading (at the easy end) with the only difficulty being heat/humidity as expected. I think the actual cycling itinerary could be improved to minimize minibus transfers, which were longer than I am used to. This is particularly the case in Cambodia where transfers on the main road felt quite dangerous because of the local overtaking habits. In contrast we enjoyed the boat transfers, particularly the boat from Siem Reap up the small river. I mention this because I have seen some adverse comments about the boat transfer on previous reviews. I would happily travel with Spice Roads again.
