We start our bike tour in Vietnam, commencing in Saigon and heading to the coast where we have a flat ride along the sea before we start climbing up to the pine-forested highlands. We then return to the flatlands riding along banana and rubber tree plantations to discover the infamous Cu Chi Tunnels.

We cycle to Cambodia’s capital and then through the country’s rice bowl to the historical temples of Angkor. We end our trip riding amongst a thousand years of history at Angkor, a definite highlight! Stunning temple complexes, scenic highlands, and local villages await you on this 14 day bike tour through South East Asia!  

This tour is 100% on road, and we designed the route with road bikers in mind. We start cycling on Vietnam’s coast with a flat warm-up ride to get used to your bikes, then the riding begins in earnest. We have our toughest day early, with a 2,641-m climb on Day 3. It’s downhill after that and then flat once we enter Cambodia.

The total distance is 1,096 km in 10 cycling days on smooth tarmac roads. The trip is fully supported, and your guide’s expert knowledge of the area and terrain means that you always know what is coming up in terms of distance and difficulty. This makes a tremendous difference, as does the constant supply of cold drinks, ice, and fresh fruit.
