Indochina Bike Tours
Cambodia, Laos & Vietnam
Siem Reap, Luang Prabang and Ha Long Bay—with us, these very different destinations come together in one beautiful journey. We start in Siem Reap to explore the ancient Khmer temples of Angkor and visit the friendly people of Cambodia. Laos offers a UNESCO-protected city, colonial architecture, a Buddhist legacy and miles of Mekong-side riding. And there’s Ha Long Bay, Vietnam’s famed limestone islands rise magically from the water’s surface, offering floating villages that stretch the limits of believability. There’s nothing on earth quite like it.
We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.
These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.

Day by Day
Head to the Temples of Angkor and venture into the heart of the Cambodian countryside to discover the local Khmer temples of present-day Cambodia.
Explore the ancient temples of Bayon and Bantai Srei the best way possible—by elephant! Later, discover the park by bike, traversing trails lined by a jungle of silk-cotton and strangler fig trees.
Make your way through the wild jungle temple of Ta Prohm, bike past the temples and the gates of Angkor Thom one last time and immerse yourself in Luang Prabang’s undiscovered heritage.
Board a morning boat ride bound for nearby Pak Ou cave and cruise down the Mekong River. Embark on a walking tour to Vat Xieng Thong, a beautiful temple dating from the 16thC.
Take an early morning market walk through the enchanting city of Luang Prabang followed by breakfast under the picture perfect, multi-tiered cascades of the Tad Kouang Si waterfalls.
Embark on a ride around Luang Prabang to take in the local culture, and later catch a flight to Hanoi and enjoy dinner at sea in Ha Long Bay.
Spend the day soaking in the tranquil views and magnificent limestone formations on board our private boat, go sea-kayaking amongst the secret caves or take a meandering bike ride on Cat Ba Island.
Disembark, say your farewells and tam biêt in Hanoi for your departure home.
