Vibrant culture, friendly people and the hustle and bustle of Saigon. There is no better way to begin an Asian odyssey than by immersing yourself in one of Asia’s busiest capitals.

Leaving the city streets behind, traveling by bike through the serene plantations will let you glimpse a different side of Vietnamese life.

Eat at the floating market, or shoot the breeze with a local fisherman, get a true taste of village life.

Pedal across the border into what is now Cambodia, where the Khmer empire once dominated South East Asia, with Angkor at its heart. Its fascinating and sometimes bloody tales are the fabric of the regions rich tapestry.

Phnom Penh’s colonial buildings are just the start of the story, as we wind our way through road, river and lake to amazing Angkor and temples that defy belief. At journey’s end, Thailand’s beautiful beaches and smiling Buddhist monks offer a welcome sight for weary travelers.
