Our cycling routes are well thought out and there are regular rest breaks/ drink stops provided to suit the temperatures. The cycling distances are planned to fit well for each day's itinerary, with a good balance between riding and sightseeing.
You can get up close to the sights and sites – from the Temples of Angkor in Cambodia and the colonial architecture of Old Saigon to the tea plantations in Sri Lanka.
For example, our Cycle Vietnam and Cambodia trip explores the Mekong Delta and Angkor and includes boat trips, which provide a great contrast to the cycling. The itinerary takes you off the beaten tourist track and provides a real insight into the communities; trying out freshly-made local sugarcane drinks, talking with people in their villages and seeing how they produce food and crafts.
