What we love About Saigon to Bangkok Cycling Holiday

We love...Diverse Southeast Asian Culture
The benefits of riding through three separate countries are that you get to observe the varying cultures, people and ways of life that make up each country and region. Enjoy the food and traditions as you ride through this magnificent place.
We love...Angkor Wat
The heart of Khmer genius and virtually unmatched elsewhere in the world, Angkor Wat is one of the most inspired monuments ever built by man. The heart and soul of Cambodia and proudly displayed on its flag, these temples will be one of the most awe inspiring sights you have ever visited.
We love...Traffic Free Roads
Explore the temples and countryside on the bike knowing that you will mostly be away from cars and traffic. You will be riding through the beautiful rural landscape made up of plantations, forests, sweeping countryside, floating villages and more.
