About This Tour

Bike Cambodia! Angkor to Hoi An cycle is a fantastic new cycling adventure, linking two of SE Asia's most iconic destinations, Angkor Wat Cambodia and Hoi An, Vietnam. In between you'll really get off the beaten track as we venture up the Mekong River into Rattankiri province where few tourists venture and cycle through the Central highlands of Vietnam, crossing the Old Ho Chi Minh Trail.

This Bike Cambodia trip offers thirteen fantastic days of discovery for anyone who likes to pack in as much adventure as possible as we bike through Cambodia and Vietnam. From the day we start out in Cambodia's bustling ancient city of Siem Reap, to the day we dismount in Vietnam's colourful playground of Hoi An, your senses will be working overtime digesting the history, culture and countryside of these two intriguing countries.

You'll see all the tourist treats Cambodia and Vietnam have to offer and, thanks to the beauty of bikes, much, much more. Both nations have enchanting, ancient histories and chilling, more recent pasts. There are some unique contrasts in cultures, customs and communities - and you'll get to experience them all.

After meeting your Bike Cambodia group in Siem Reap, we cycle to the moss-covered, almost deserted temple of Beng Melea and then onto the provincial towns of Kampong Thom and Kampong Cham. We travel on tracks, trails and secondary roads, avoiding the traffic and seeing the villages and countryside.

We explore the Kratie area, home to the Irrawaddy Fresh Water Dolphins and discover some great local food before cycling to a remote village near the Laos border where we hope to see wild vultures.

We take a half-day kayak through the flooded forest of the Mekong River before we drive to Ban Lung in Rattanakiri, where we take some time out to rest.

We cycle across the Ho Chi Minh Trail and through coffee plantation country as we pass over the highlands of Vietnam and then down to the coast.

We visit the My Lai memorial site to learn about the tragic events that changed the American people's view on the conflict and then cycle through fishing villages and rice fields before riding a section of Highway one and then taking the small trails into Hoi An where our journey concludes.
