Itinerary

Day 1

We meet in Saigon for an afternoon city tour, visiting the main historical sites before having a delicious welcome dinner.

Day 2

A morning transfer takes us out of the city and to the start of our ride along the coast. We cycle past Ke Ga Cape near the Ta Kou National Reserve as we ride north to Phan Thiet. A white sand beach is waiting!

Day 3

Our route starts along the coastline, but then we begin our climb to Dalat. We ascend a total of 3,216 m on quiet roads, and we'll take many breaks, including one at Dai Ninh Dam. Enjoy the colonial atmosphere of Dalat.

Day 4

We cycle downhill, descending a total of 3,620 m! It is also a picturesque ride through numerous plantations of the Central Highlands. We descend to Di Linh and end at our resort in the Madagui forest.

Day 5

We start cycling from Madagui to the historic bridge of La Nga then transfer to Cu Chi where we'll have lunch and visit the famous tunnels.

Day 6

We set off for the Vietnam/Cambodia border at Moc Bai and catch our first glimpses of rural Cambodian life as we start an easy cycle past traditional wooden houses on stilts framed by a backdrop of vast rice fields.

Day 7

Today is free to discover Phnom Penh.

Day 8

We cycle out of Phnom Penh towards a Japanese bridge, and though our first ride will be on a busy stretch of road, we will soon be in quiet Cambodian countryside. We stop for a visit to the ancient capital of Oudong then head northwest to Kompong Chhnang.

Another flat ride as we cycle north to Pursat. On the way, we visit a marble carving workshop as the region is known for their skilled craftsmen who sculpt huge Buddhas and beautiful statues.

Day 10

We continue north with endless views of rice paddies to Battambang, the rice bowl of Cambodia. Statues, many of animals (mythical and real), are scattered throughout the town, which also has a number of fine early 20th-century French colonial buildings.

Reviews

A huge thank you to our guides for making our vacation in Vietnam and Cambodia truly memorable. The van drivers also went out of their way to keep us well hydrated and filled with tasty snacks while making sure our road bikes were always ready each day. Great teamwork! I had a terrific time! Thank you also to the office team who made the planning and reservations a breeze and answered all our questions quickly! And to the wonderful people who greeted us in villages along the way, you made us feel like Olympic champions! I will miss your cheery hellos and warm smiles! Love you all!

A great tour with a lot crammed into 9.5 days of cycling. The guides were incredibly informative and the group of cyclists really made the trip for me. This is my third SpiceRoads trip after Chang Mai to Chang Rai plus Taiwan so I'm a big Spice Roads fan.
