Enjoy cycling through two of Asia's most unique and vibrant countries on this nine-day trip. Starting from the energetic Ho Chi Minh City, you’ll cycle through the lush Mekong Delta before finishing at the iconic temples of Angkor Wat. Suitable for anyone with a reasonable level of fitness, the terrain is mostly gentle and you’ll be riding on tarmacked roads and wide but rough dirt tracks. Some sections are covered by transfer vehicle or boat, and there’ll be a support truck on-hand for much of the way.

Cycling through Vietnam’s rice bowl, you’ll pass local villages, banana plantations and Khmer houses before taking a boat along the Mekong River to Cambodia. Here, you’ll ride to the Killing Fields, cycle to the ancient temples at Siem Reap and see the gilded palace in Phnom Penh. On this tour you will join cyclists taking part in the longer 13-night Ho Chi Minh to Siem Reap to Bangkok tour.
