This adventure links two of the region's famous locations, the Angkor temples of the Khmer Empire with the historic UNESCO World Heritage town of Hoi An. The journey between offers an amazing diversity of landscapes and overnight stops: from the Mekong Basin and remote areas near the Lao border, to the area surrounding the Ho Chi Minh Trail; from the Vietnamese highland coffee country, to the beautiful coast. Great bike touring, activities and an amazing array of scenery awaits.
The most recently opened border between Cambodia and Vietnam sits in the triangle area where the Laos, Cambodian and Vietnam borders meet. We make use of this strategic location to offer a satisfying and different cycle route between these two iconic destinations. This tour shows you the great, non-touristy areas, off the beaten track and with some very memorable bike touring in between.
765 Km riding. On this bike tour the terrain is a mixture of sealed and unsealed secondary roads. We rarely cycle on main roads or highways and if we do, it's only for a few kilometres to get to the next turn. The majority of the ride is on small roads through the villages with minimal traffic. The road surface can at times be rough and broken, depending on seasonal conditions. In most cases, there is a comfortable line through the puddles or potholes and it makes for more interesting riding than a perfect road. There are some hills involved in this tour. These are a maximum of 8km long at any time. Most are shorter at around 3-4km in length. The gradient would not exceed 10% at any time. There is one day in excess of 100km in distance. The mixture of adventurous cycling, kayaking and travel in relatively remote areas, makes this a slightly more challenging tour than most of our Cambodian adventures, so we have rated it at four out of six stars.
Pedal-assist E-bike is an available option for this tour for $420 surcharge.
Cycle the iconic temples of the UNESCO World Heritage Angkor Archeological Park at sunset.
Walk to the other UNESCO favorite mountaintop Preah Vihear temple with views of Thailand.
Switch from bikes to kayaks as you paddle the Mekong by the Laos border.
Cycle past small fishing communities in the countryside, then take a boat ride into Hoi An.
