Upon arrival you have time to explore the fascinating city of Saigon which is at the heart of Vietnam, before embarking on this truly inspiring cycle challenge. Starting in Vietnam’s Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), cycle through an abundance of beautiful landscape and culture to the ancient temples of Angkor Wat in Cambodia.
The 400km cycle route will take you through many traditional Vietnamese villages, following gorgeous streams and rivers, passing paddy fields and adjacent to stunning mountains. Few locals will have seen foreigners cycling past, and their interest and hospitality will spur on even the most tired cyclist.
We then cross the border into Cambodia and push forward to the world famous temple site of Angkor Wat – arguably one of most fascinating wonders of the world! Built from 879 – 1191AD by the Khmer civilisation, Ankgor Wat represents one of mankind’s most astonishing architectural achievements and is certainly the jewel in Cambodia’s crown.
Two fascinating countries combined in one incredible challenge. Book your place today and experience the wonder of South East Asia at its best!
