From the bustling streets of Bangkok, to the serene tranquillity of the shimmering paddy fields, to the magnificence of Angkor’s temples, we see a little piece of everything these amazing countries have to offer. In Vietnam we enter the Mekong Delta, a spectacular patchwork of rice paddies and waterways.

Day 1 : Start Bangkok
Location: Bangkok
Accommodation: Hotel
Accommodation Name: Royal Princess Larn Luang Hotel or similar
Meals Included: No Meals

There will be a group meeting and briefing in the evening with you leader
followed by an optional group dinner for those that would like to join. Your
main luggage will be transported ahead of you to the start point early in the
morning so please bring this with you to the meeting; just hang on to what
you need for the night/morning - you will be with your luggage again
mid-morning tomorrow.

Day 2 : Early Transfer To The Old Kingdom Of Ayutthaya; Warm-Up Ride On Trail
Location: Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya
Accommodation: Hotel
Accommodation Name: iRabbit Hotel or similar
Meals Included: Breakfast

An early start this morning as we venture out of Bangkok to the ancient town
of Ayutthaya. Our two-hour transfer takes us into the heart of this
fascinating site and we start cycling by the huge reclining Buddha. Much of
the old town was destroyed by the Burmese in the 18th Century and we will
cycle through the remaining shrine towers and enormous temples to appreciate
the past magnificence. 

Day 3 : Cycle To Kabin Buri
Location: Kabin Buri District
Accommodation: Hotel
Accommodation Name: Serenity Hotel & Spa Onsen or similar
Meals Included: Breakfast

Today we follow minor roads through rural Thai landscapes including rubber
and eucalyptus plantations as well as tapioca and rice fields. There are a
few easy rolling hills but the route is mostly flat. The ride ends when we
join a busier road before driving the final short distance to the town of
Kabin Buri by bus.

Day 4 : Ride To Aranyaprathet
Location: Aranyaprathet
Accommodation: Hotel
Accommodation Name: lndo China Hotel or similar
Meals Included: Breakfast

Leaving our hotel early in the morning we ride towards Tha Krabak where we
can stop by a reservoir for a swim and a view of the untouched jungle on the
other side. We will break for lunch before carrying on cycling on quiet but
well-maintained scenic roads on the way to Aranyaprathet, 10km from the
Cambodian border. 

Day 5 : Into Cambodia And On To Siem Reap
Location: Krong Siem Reap
Accommodation: Hotel
Accommodation Name: Angkor Holiday or similar
Meals Included: Breakfast

After breakfast we drive to the busy border and complete customs formalities
as we cross into Cambodia at Poipet. We then drive to Siem Reap. Due to years
of civil war the country is poorer and less developed than its neighbours.
Apart from growth in the capital and around Siem Reap, the way of life in the
countryside is still very much the same as it has been for centuries. This
afternoon's ride from Siem Reap takes us past Wat Athvea, a modern temple in
the grounds of the ruins of an Angkorian temple, and ends at a market and
picnic area outside of Siem Reap. 

Day 6 : First Of Two Full Days To Explore The Temple Complex Of Angkor By Bus And Bike, Including Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom, The Bayon And Banteay Srei
Location: Angkor Wat
Accommodation: Hotel
Accommodation Name: Angkor Holiday or similar
Meals Included: Breakfast

Today we may choose to have an early start to avoid the inevitable crowds
drawn to the wonders of Angkor. The various temples are spread over a wide
area and are linked by shady avenues; meandering our way between them by bike
gives us a unique perspective. Our cycle tour will include the jungle-covered
Ta Prohm, with the amazing roots of the Fromagier trees clinging to the
ancient stones, Angkor Thom with the famous Bayon temple of 37 towers
(originally there were 49) topped with the four faces of the king, and of
course the incredible Angkor Wat, with its huge moat, long causeway and
massive towers - it is the largest temple complex in Asia. 

Day 7 : Second Day At Angkor Temple Complex
Location: Angkor Temple Guides
Accommodation: Hotel
Accommodation Name: Angkor Holiday or similar
Meals Included: Breakfast

Today we cycle outside the main Angkor complex to the outlying temple of
Banteay Srei, 35km from Siem Reap town. Our route takes us past paddy fields,
and through pretty villages. Banteay Srei was built in the 10th Century and
contains some of the finest examples of Khmer sculpture. Although much
smaller than the later temples, here all of the buildings are covered in
exquisite carvings. In the afternoon as we cycle back to Siem Reap we can
stop and visit a few of the less visited Angkor temples. Siem Reap town is
pleasant to wander around; the market has plenty of interest and excellent
shopping and there is a vibrant nightlife scene. This afternoon there should
also be time to visit the Tonle Sap Lake, which is a branch of the Mekong
River. This optional trip includes a boat ride to see the floating fishing
villages. Anyone wanting to do this visit may need to miss part or all of the
ride back to Siem Reap, depending on timings. Cycle approx. 70 km. if riding
the full distance to and from Banteay Srei.

Day 8 : Drive To Phnom Penh, Stopping At Sambor Pre Kuk And Skuon
Location: Phnom Penh
Accommodation: Hotel
Accommodation Name: Ohana Hotel or similar
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch

Today we take a bus journey of approximately 7 hours along National Road 6 to
Phnom Penh, with a couple of stops along the way. We visit Sambor Prei Kuk,
Cambodia's most impressive group of pre-Angkorian monuments with some of the
oldest structures in the country. We'll also pause for a traditional Khmer
lunch at a community restaurant before stopping in the town Skuon, which is
known for its local delicacy of fried spiders. The road is currently
undergoing some resurfacing so some sections will be a bit of a bumpy ride!
We should arrive in Phnom Penh for late afternoon, the perfect time for a
sundowner on the Mekong.

Day 9 : Sightseeing Including Royal Palace, Silver Pagoda And Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum And The 'Killing Fields'
Location: Phnom Penh
Accommodation: Hotel
Accommodation Name: Ohana Hotel or similar
Meals Included: Breakfast

The fortunes of Phnom Penh have shifted dramatically during its history and
the terrible years of the Khmer Rouge and subsequent civil war through the
1970s and 1980s have scarred the country. During our stay we visit two sites
which give us a vivid impression of some of the horrors. There is the
Genocide Museum, which is the former Khmer Rouge prison known as S-21 or Tuol
Sleng, in the centre of the city. And 15kms of out of town is the area known
as the 'Killing Fields,' a mass grave and execution site for the former
inmates of S-21. While visiting Tuol Sleng and the Killing Fields may not
appeal to everyone, we feel they give us an important understanding of what
the country and its people had to endure just a few decades ago.

On a more positive note, the city is very much on the rise again and is a
fascinating place with fine examples of French colonial architecture. We tour
the Royal Palace with its Silver Pagoda. There is also excellent shopping at
the 'Russian' market, and the lively Mekong waterfront area.

Day 10 : Transfer To Takeo Then Cycle To Vietnam Border And Chau Doc
Location: Châu Đốc
Accommodation: Hotel
Accommodation Name: Chau Pho hotel or similar
Meals Included: Breakfast

This morning we transfer south out of Phnom Penh to the town of Takeo. Here
the road becomes quieter and we mount our bikes for the 50km ride to the
Phnom Den / Tinh Bien border. Once border formalities have been completed, we
cycle approximately 30km to Chau Doc. 

Day 11 : Cycle/Drive Through The Mekong Delta To Vinh Long; Catch Boat To Homestay Guesthouse
Location: Vĩnh Long
Accommodation: Homestay Guesthouse Mekong Delta
Meals Included: Breakfast, Dinner

This morning we ride from our hotel along a lovely quiet backroad, lined with
small villages and dwellings before stopping for lunch and transferring the
rest of the way to Vinh Long by bus. Leaving the bikes on the mainland, we
take another boat (20 minutes) to reach our homestay guesthouse on an island
in the Mekong Delta, known as the 'rice bowl' of Vietnam. After settling in
we can explore the area on foot. The rivers and canals of the Mekong Delta
form an amazing network of waterways. The area is famous for its abundant
rice production but in many areas farmers are now moving to more profitable
fish-farming and fruit and vegetable growing. The evening is tranquil as we
have dinner at the homestay and enjoy some 'Delta' hospitality. We spend the
night sleeping at a simple guesthouse built in the style of a local house.
Bedding, a mosquito net and a small towel are provided.

Day 12 : Transfer To Cai Be For Floating Market; Scenic Cycle Along Mekong Riverbank; Transfer To Saigon
Location: Mekong River
Accommodation: Hotel
Accommodation Name: Huong Sen hotel or similar
Meals Included: Breakfast

We leave by boat, stopping en route for a look at the Cai Be floating market.
Here large boats moor up in the Mekong River, weighed down with fruit and
vegetable produce. Local traders and shop owners buy in bulk in this strictly
'wholesale' market. Recently, Cai Be floating market is becoming less
crowded and smaller as fruit trading is mostly now done by trucks due to the
bridge being built. However, this is still a great opportunity to see a local
market and trade being conducted traditionally on a smaller scale.

A little further on we make a short stop to see cottage industries producing
such items as popped rice, pancakes, wine and other homemade products. We
start our ride towards Cai Lay where we take a scenic route through fruit
orchards and along the Mekong riverbank. Back on the bus in My Tho, we drive
on to the heat, hustle and bustle of Ho Chi Minh City, still usually known as
Saigon. This is an exciting and absorbing city where scooters pack the
streets and temples stand defiantly alongside modern developments. Devastated
by the Vietnam War, it is now a free market city where anything goes. 

Day 13 : Free Day In Saigon
Location: Ho Chi Minh City
Accommodation: Hotel
Accommodation Name: Huong Sen hotel or similar
Meals Included: Breakfast

The whole day is free to explore Saigon, do some shopping and to relax. There
are a number of interesting things to see - the Saigon River, Ben Thanh
Market, Reunification Palace and Notre Dame Cathedral are all within easy
walking distance. Alternatively a short cyclo (cycle taxi) ride will take you
to the War Remnants Museum with an interesting (if a little gruesome)
photographic record of the Vietnam/American War. For those that are
interested your leader can arrange an optional visit to the Cu Chi Tunnels,
located 2 hours outside the city. Used by the Viet Cong during the war, the
network covers 3 levels and approximately 240km of tunnels. Originally these
were very narrow but some areas have been widened to allow tourists to
explore the system. Claustrophobes may prefer to stay outside in the

Day 14 : End Saigon
Location: Ho Chi Minh City
Meals Included: Breakfast

The trip ends this morning after breakfast in Saigon.

What's Included

  • Local bike hire

  • All transport and listed activities

  • Tour leader throughout

  • Arrival & departure transfers

  • All accommodation 

  • All breakfasts, 1 lunch and 1 dinner

  • Flights from London (if booking incl. flights)

What's Not Included

  • Visas or vaccinations

  • Single accommodation (available on request - hotel nights only)

  • Travel insurance


All breakfasts, 1 lunch and 1 dinner are included. The food on this trip is a real highlight for many. Southeast Asian cuisine is known for its abundance of freshly prepared dishes with strong aromatic flavours. There is a focus on herbs and citrus to ensure each dish packs a punch; chilli does feature highly too but is easily avoided if desired. Typically most dishes will come with rice and many are often served in a banana leaf with a variety of dips and herbs served separately. The three countries visited ensure a different culinary experience every time you cross the border; ensure you try the freshly made Pad Thai noodles from the street stalls of Bangkok, the fish amok curry in Cambodia for a creamy coconut-based fragrant curry and the Banh Xeo (huge sizzling pancakes) found in Vietnam cannot be missed! Western food is readily available almost everywhere except in the Mekong Delta region. Vegetarians are well catered for but please inform us before departure of any special dietary requests. Please note that the availability of certain specialized products for restricted diets, e.g. gluten-free or dairy-free, is minimal or non-existent and we strongly recommend you bring these specialised dietary items from home. You may find it beneficial to bring some 'cycling snacks' with you from home if you have high energy bars or gels that you like to use during a ride. For those who wish to contribute, a kitty is normally arranged (see extra expenses) - fresh fruit, nuts, biscuits and local snacks are all provided from the snack kitty along with drinks and electrolyte powders.


We spend 12 nights in hotels and one night in a guesthouse on the Mekong Delta. The hotels typically used are named in the day-to-day itinerary. Below are some of the standout accommodations on this trip.

Phnom Penh: Ohana Hotel

Neighbouring the Tonle Sap River, this modern hotel is in the action. It’s just a seven-minute riverside walk to the Foreign Correspondents’ Club, while the National Museum and Royal Palace are both within a 10-minute stroll. The hotel itself has a rooftop restaurant-bar, plus there’s a first-floor pool.

Mekong Delta: Island homestay

Our time in a guesthouse allows us to experience true Delta hospitality, as we are looked after by local people and stay by the Mekong River. The rooms are relatively basic; bedding, a mosquito net and a small towel are provided, while there are shared bathroom facilities with a shower. The real highlight is the hospitality of our hosts, the lush garden, and the food (homemade southern Vietnamese cuisine).

Siem Reap: Angkor Holiday Hotel

A short drive from the Angkor temple complex, this hotel is ideally placed for our adventures in Siem Reap. When you’re not out exploring, there’s a swimming pool to splash around in plus a restaurant serving Asian, Khmer and Western cuisines.

Reviews from Travellers on this Tour


An exciting ride through three countries with varied and wonderful experiences. You must do it!

Absolutely Fabulous Holiday.

Well where do I start? This holiday was one big adventure from the start, right to the end. I saw and learnt so much.


Great trip with a great group! Loads of cycling in Thailand and cultural cycling breaks in Cambodia and Vietnam. The guides did a great job and gave us valuable insight into each country's history, customs and traditions. 

Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam Oct 2015

Excellent trip from start to finish. Organisation was amazing, we didn't have to worry about anything ourselves. Cycling was really good, with amazing support team throughout the three countries. Great group of people too who all enjoyed themselves. Will definitely do another cycling holiday with Exodus


This was one of the best experiences I have many brilliant memories which will stay with me forever.....cheesy but true!

Cycling Three Countries

The whole holiday was a great adventure and turned out to be even better than we hoped it would be! So much to see and do, we packed so much in it felt like we had been away for a month! Cycling allowed you to get to see bits of the countries that you would never normally get close too on other types of holidays -Brilliant!


even if your not an experienced cyclist you'll be amazed at how much you have covered in miles and thought

Superb entry into cycling abroad

The was to be my first cycling holiday abroad and I didn't know what to expect. The organisation of the trip, the bike teams who provided superb snacks at every stop, the excellent bikes, the superb leader, the amazing views.. they all helped make it an enjoyable experience. Several members of the group didn't really cycle much at all but we all managed it, with the more experienced cyclists offering help and advice as needed.

An wonderful trip. Highly recommended.

This was a superb trip in many respects. If you are unsure about booking this trip, then just book it, as it will be a unique and positive experience.

Fantastic trip that changes with each country

A great trip that differs in style in each country. Thailand you are on very quiet roads and complete long (80-90km) rides each day. Very relaxing and you can go at any pace. Staying in small towns with a few bus transfers to avoid the busy roads. Cambodia is mainly in the tourist areas and you cycle around Angkor wat and the surrounding area. This tended to be slower and with the group. Vietnam was through small villages and towns and you spend most your time waving at the locals. Great fun and loads to see and do.
