Itinerary

Day 1

Meet in Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) for dinner at one of Ho Chi Minh City’s finest restaurants

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 cruise up the Mekong River by speedboat to reach Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s bustling capital city. Here we visit the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum and the Royal Palace for a balanced perspective on the city’s history.

Day 6

After a quick transfer from Phnom Penh, we cycle on backroads through the rustic countryside to reach Oudong Mountain. We visit hilltop Buddhist stupas of Cambodia’s former capital and then transfer to the sleepy backwater town of Kampong Thom.

Day 7

We ride along the floodplain of the Stueng Saen River to reach Sambor Prei Kuk, an abandoned, ancient city with scattered brick temples nestled in a serene forest. We then transfer to Siem Reap, the “gateway to Angkor”.

Day 8

We discover the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Angkor by bike, cycling on small paths that crisscross the ancient landscape. Visiting the most iconic sites today - Ta Prohm, Bayon and, of course, Angkor Wat – we’ll learn about the enigmatic history of the once-glorious Khmer Empire.

Day 9

We cycle through the countryside surrounding Siem Reap, far away from the touring masses. Our destination is Banteay Srei, a pink-sandstone temple renowned for its intricate carvings.. After lunch, we transfer back to Siem Reap and enjoy the afternoon at leisure.

Day 10

Today, we take a break from cycling. In the morning, we visit a floating village on Tonle Sap Lake by boat. Then, we transfer to Battambang, where we'll experience a ride on the bamboo train and witness millions of bats emerging from a cave!

Day 11

Cycling on paved roads for nearly 100 km, today’s route takes us through the heart of one of Cambodia’s most fertile agricultural regions and along the edge of Cardamom Mountains. We spend the night at a cozy hotel near the town of Pailin.

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.

Day 14

Morning free to enjoy the beach before we head back to Bangkok.

Reviews

I appreciated the attention of the guides and van drivers. I had a flat and it was fixed in five minutes. They would help us order local dishes for lunch and dinners. Snack breaks included local food too. And the food was fantastic.

Knowledgable guides eager to share their country with us. This tour provided high value for the cost.

I would like to commend Nak, our guide through Cambodia, for an amazing tour of Cambodia. Nak's passion for Cambodia, it's history and the people of Cambodia were evident throughout the days we spent traveling with him. Nak's compassion for the people of Cambodia was evident with every interaction we had along our travels through Cambodia-his kindness shown to the people we interacted with kids, families, older adults will be the memory of Cambodia that I will take away with me. While the historic sites, cities, biking miles were what I thought would be the highlight of my trip, it truly was Nak's lesson in compassion shown through our travels that will be the most memorable for me.
