Summary

Indochina Cycle

Many visitors to Southeast Asia spend much of their time rushing around clogged city streets. Break free and see the region from a bicycle seat on this 12-day trip. You'll roll past the temples of stunning Angkor Wat, cruise around Phnom Penh, and ride between the jungle, mangrove forests, and beaches of Ream National Park. It's perfect for pedal-pushers of all levels looking to explore less well-known regions at a leisurely pace. Consider this an introduction to the joys of Southeast Asia and cycling.
