It would be difficult to find a more beautiful and contrasting cycle than Vietnam to Cambodia. Covering over 270 miles under pedal power over 6 event-filled days, we explore the lush Mekong Delta with its plantations and rice paddies, before reaching the dry fields and forests of Cambodia.
Fuelled morning, noon and night by two of the greatest cuisines in the world, we will make our way from Ho Chi Min City via the cultural slap to the senses of Phnom Penh to the achingly beautiful ruins of Angkor Wat.
We pass havens of tranquility in the pagodas and temples of Vietnam and Cambodia, explore the crazy, teaming floating markets of Caj Rang and Phong Dien in Vietnam and take on every type of road imaginable, and every mode of transport conceivable.
Paved roads will give way to rutted dirt tracks, rivers and orchard-lined canals will be crossed with unpowered ferries and bamboo bridges, and the freedom allowed us by exploring by bike means we’ll see these wonderful countries as few visitors do – up close and with no barriers.
The Vietnamese and Cambodian people are incredibly welcoming. This epic cycling experience will give you deep insight into a wonderful culture and, over the space of a week, create memories that will last a lifetime.
