After breakfast, we’ll start the day with a ride through the pretty tree lined town on Tra Vinh. We’ll off-road onto gravel and dirt lanes, weaving around villages, across water channels, and through quiet dense vegetation.

You will stay overnight in Can Tho.

Day 5: Can Tho - Long Xuyen (75km+ cycling) (B/L/-)

On the fifth day, the ride is split into two sections and is a contrast to the previous day's ride. After a very early breakfast, you will take a boat trip to the famous Cai Rang floating market.

Day 6: Long Xuyen - Chau Doc (80km+ cycling) (B/L/-)

Day 7: Chau Doc – Phnom Penh (Speed boat) (B/-/-)

Day 10: Full Day In Angkor Wat (30km+ cycling) (B/L/-)

You’ll have an entire day to explore the temple complex of Angkor Wat. Angkor Wat itself is just one of the many temples in the region but is one of the best preserved and most impressive. It is worth climbing the remarkably steep and narrow steps of the central spire for a view of the whole temple surrounded by jungle. You will stay overnight in Siem Reap.

Day 11: Siem Reap – Battembang (56km+ cycling) (B/L/-)

On the eleventh day, you have another break from riding. We’ll visit the floating village before heading across the lake to Battembang, Cambodia's second capital, a sleepy city full of faded colonial charm.

Day 12: Battambang – Pailin (89km+ cycling) (B/L/-)

You’ll saddle up and ride south to Pailin in the morning. The road, in sections, is in poor condition but the scenery is impressive as we head toward Thailand. The road undulates as we get closer to Pailin, but it’s manageable - nothing too steep or long. We’ll cross over streams and bridges and really get a feeling of riding into uncharted territory.

Day 13: Pailin Border - Koh Chang (Cross border to Thailand) (B/L/-)

Guide and driver will meet you at the Baan Pakad border. After immigration, we’ll take a break for lunch at local restaurant in the Thai countryside. Then, Vietnam Cycling Tours’ll have a quick transfer to Ferry Pier in Trat province and get on board to Koh Chang, where you will stay overnight.

Day 15: Koh Chang – Bangkok (B/L/-)

In the morning, your guide will meet you back at Ferry Pier. He/she will accompany you during the transfer to Bangkok. Upon arrival in Bangkok, you will take a short city tour and have some free time to explore the bustling city on your own. You’ll stay overnight in Bangkok.
