This breathtaking bike ride takes you from Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) to the ancient temples of Angkor Wat.
Before you commence with your journey you’ll have time to explore the fascinating city of Saigon – the heart of Vietnam. Then, it’s 382km of cycling taking you through many traditional Vietnamese villages, following gorgeous streams and rivers, passing paddy fields and adjacent to stunning mountains. Few locals will have seen foreigners cycling past and their interest and hospitality will spur on even the most tired cyclist.
After a fascinating river journey and rest day on the Mekong and Bassac Rivers, you cross the border into Cambodia and push on to the world famous temple site of Angkor Wat – arguably one of most fascinating wonders of the world! Built from 879 – 1191AD by the Khmer civilisation, Angkor Wat represents one of mankind’s most astonishing architectural achievements and is certainly the jewel in Cambodia’s crown.
