- Cycling in Cambodia, Thailand & Vietnam
- Ride between Bangkok, Saigon and the Mekong Delta
- Visit the ancient temples of Angkor Wat
This journey takes us across three countries in South East Asia with contrasting histories and subtly different cultures. From the busy streets of Bangkok we head straight for the rolling limestone hills of Thailand's largest National Park, Khao Yai.
We continue cycling in Cambodia, passing through shimmering paddy fields to Angkor, the magnificent temple complex at the centre of the former Khmer Empire and one of the world's great historic sites. We reach Phnom Penh, where we encounter stark reminders of Cambodia's more recent past.
Arriving in Vietnam, we enter the Mekong Delta, a criss-crossed patchwork of rice paddies and waterways, the so-called 'rice bowl of Vietnam'. We complete our bike holiday in the vibrant city of Saigon where the frenetic pace contrasts with some of the rural areas we have cycled through.
What the papers say about cycling in Indochina & Angkor Wat...

What makes this trip responsible?
Tourism can be a real help to local communities, providing income, positive cultural exchanges and a financial incentive to protect their natural environment. Ours is a 'total approach' to responsible tourism, covering everything from the way we plan and operate our trips to the practices of Exodus as a company.
Local restaurants are used for lunch stops, and shops are used to purchase items for the snacks kitty throughout the week benefitting the local community.
