Our entry into Cambodia is by boat as we head up one of Asia's great rivers, the Mekong, to Phnom Penh. Cycle on toKampong Thom to visit temples before we head to Siem Reap and more famous temples of Angkor.

    We laughed all the way between Saigon and Bangkok. There is no better way to see the country than by bike. It would take you weeks to find your way in and out of the Mekong Delta along all those tiny jungle trails.
    A great group from 6 different countries. Everyone loved it and weeks afterwards we are still emailing pictures to and from. I can't wait to get back on another tour possibly North Vietnam and Laos. Although I really fancy Bhutan. So much to do so little time

    A very enjoyable tour, we definitely got our money's worth.

    Cycling through the Mekong delta region on those wonderful cement paths was just terrific. Swimming (and eating) at Rabbit Island was a great way to end our tour.

    Many thanks to Spice Roads for giving us a lot of fantastic memories.

Itinerary

Day 1
    Meet in Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) for dinner at the enchanting Temple Club Restaurant.

Day 2
    Transfer to Cai Be, the gateway to the Mekong Delta, to start riding down narrow roads and lanes, past banana plantations and fields of sugarcane, across rivers to Tra Vinh a pretty tree-lined town.

Day 3
    There is plenty to observe today - fishermen, village life, temples -- as we cycle scenic roads, crossing many small bridges, to Can Tho.

Day 4
    Visit Cai Rang floating market before a transfer to the start of the ride on a gently undulating road as mountains begin to loom as you ride closer and closer to Chau Doc, stopping on the way to visit the Killing Fields of Vietnam at Ba Chuc.

Day 5
    We rest our legs as we boat it up the Mekong River to Phnom Penh.

Day 6
    From the capital of Phnom Penh we cycle on back roads to the town of Oudong, a former capital of Cambodia. Afternoon is free to explore Phnom Penh.

Day 7
    After a transfer to near Kampong Thom and the ancient temple site of Sambor Prey Kuk we saddle up and ride between the temples by bicycle. After lunch we have a beautiful ride through paddy fields and small villages before a transfer to Siem Reap.

Day 8
    We ride to the Angkor Temple complex before starting the Grand Circuit, stopping at each major temple area before riding back to Siem Reap.

    We enter the temple complex by a much quieter gate and then ride into the countryside and we turn off the main tourist road to Banteay Srei, visiting Banteay Samre on the way.

    Today we have another break from riding and visit the floating village before heading across the Tonle Sap to Battambang,

Day 11
    We saddle up and ride south to Pailin along an undulating road, crossing streams and bridges and really get a feeling of riding into unchartered territory.
