Cycling in Vietnam and Cambodia…

Cycling & Culinary Adventure to Vietnam/Cambodia

Nick spent some time in a previous life operating  and cycle experiences through interesting locations like South East Asia and South America.

Vietnam and Cambodia are colourful countries full of history, beautiful exotic nature and extremely friendly, welcoming people. The fruit alone is worth a trip there, but there is a lot more to discover in the culinary world of Vietnam and Cambodia. The landscape will astonish you – from seaside roads to mountainous hills, river sides and deep jungle, there is everything to see. Traveling by bike is an amazing way to experience the culture and food from these fascinating countries, and to meet a few locals along the way.

This August the 7th, Nick is heading back to a couple of his favourite destinations, Cambodia and Vietnam, on a 13 day culinary and cycling adventure. Starting in Saigon you would take the southern Vietnam’s scenic pathways, then explore the city of Ho Chi Minh. Of course side trips like visiting the Chu Chi Tunnels and the Cai Rang floating markets are a must. Then, it goes on to Cambodia’s premier beach destination Siahnoukville. Of course the famous city Phnom Penh will be visited and the infamous Killing Fields. Towards the end of the tour, we will cycle to the highlight of the tour, Angkor Wat, and this way get to see it from a totally different perspective than other visitors. The guests will always stay in super comfortable accommodation and enjoy delicious meals. Cycling is never the only goal in a day and the tour is fully supported, so if you feel too hot, just jump in the van!

2 countries in 13 days! This ultimate cycling adventure from the mighty Mekong to the mesmerizing temples of Angkor Wat is out of this world. It’s a jam-packed excursion that covers a lot of ground, including Southern Vietnam’s scenic pathways, friendly candid visits with Cham people and Cambodia’s rich cultural heritage.
