Saigon to Angkor Wat Bike Ride
29 March - 8 April 2019
Cambodia & Vietnam
A challenge of great contrasts, this cycling route covers 450kms past plantations, across waterways and through villages deep in the heart of the lush Mekong Delta in Vietnam. You will venture off the beaten track along quiet backwaters and country roads, passing temples and pagodas and experiencing local hospitality.
We then cross the border into Cambodia and push forward through beautiful landscape 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 a designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
