Itinerary

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.

Reviews

Fabulous, knowledgeable guides; excellent riding routes; extensive site visits; wonderful food. Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand are beautiful countries to see by bike. Guides Tan and USB were exceptional.

I had never been in this part of the world and did not know what to expect. This bike trip allowed me to see Vietnam and Cambodia on back roads and away from most tourists. I loved the culture and loved the people. The hotels and the food was excellent. The guides are well organized, helpful and polite. I especially liked USB (Vibol). I found him extremely forthcoming regarding culture and religion of the Cambodian people.

Our guides 'made the trip' for us! They were knowledgeable, accommodating, friendly and professional, all at the same time. In addition, their support staffers were great too.
