Southeast Asia Luxury Travel
Three Unique Countries
Though Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam are close in proximity, they couldn’t be more different. However, with B&R’s Indochina Biking trip, the three come together beautifully in one unique journey. Cambodia is our jumping-off point, where we’ll explore the ancient Khmer temples of Angkor. Laos, one of the world’s emerging cities, offers a Buddhist legacy and miles of Mekong-side riding. In the charming Luang Prabang, a UNESCO-protected city, you’ll experience the country’s French history as you ride past faded buildings from the French colonial period. Even with Vietnam’s vibrant economic growth, this country is as charming, picturesque and wondrous as the first time we cycled here more than a decade ago.
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.

“I enjoy a good walk or ride, and feel comfortable while on the move.”
“I get moving at least once a week, and don’t mind a little sweat.”
“I get moving a few times per week and enjoy some exertion.”
“I want to feel invigorated each day and going hard is how I like to do that.”

Day by Day
We will pick you up at the airport today in a private car and take you to your first hotel. You can spend the rest of the day relaxing in the pool before meeting your local Khmer guide in the early evening for cocktails.
Bike or walk into the heart of the Cambodia countryside to explore the local Khmer temples. Later, head into the magnificent temple of Angkor Wat where our local guide describes this awe-inspiring temple that has defied time and nature for more than 700 years. At nightfall, enjoy dinner at our favourite local restaurant.
Today explore the temples of Bayon. Traverse the trails of the park lined by a jungle of silk, cotton and strangler fig trees. Spend the afternoon biking, hiking, or visiting the lady temple of Bantei Srei.
Explore the wild jungle temple of Ta Prohm and bike or walk through the park, passing the temples of Angkor Wat, the Elephant Terrace and the gates of Angkor Thom one last time. Take a short flight to Luang Prabang and enjoy a special Lao welcome with a traditional Lao Baci well-wishing ceremony.
Cycle north out of town along side the Mekong. Enjoy a boat ride bound for the nearby Pak Ou cave and cruise down the Mekong. Walk to Vat Xieng Thong, a beautiful temple dating from the 16thC and end at the National Museum in the former Royal Palace, open exclusively for us.
Rise early today to witness 600 saffron-clad monks emerging from morning prayers and silently proceeding through town to collect alms. Head to the multi-tiered cascades of the Tad Kouang Si waterfalls for breakfast and spend the day exploring, shopping, or biking.
This morning head to the Vietnamese capital of Hanoi for a Cyclo ride along tree-lined boulevards, experiencing the city’s historic architecture and the capital’s delightfully chaotic street life. Take a city tour by our favourite local guide.
After breakfast fly to Hue, the imperial capital of Vietnam. Once in Hue we have chosen the most picture-perfect area for our ride where we will introduce you to some of the most beautiful scenery central Vietnam has to offer.
Today’s ride loops through the quiet rice field and over small riverside paths before ending at the Thien Mu, where we’ll head to a private home for a magical lunch by our charming hosts who are fascinated with the imperial history of Hue.
Travel under the famous "pass of the clouds" to Da Nang where we'll have a riverside lunch before riding out into the countryside. Tonight meet for cocktails at our friend Duc’s restaurant where you’ll taste this culinary wizard’s signature mango margarita and sit down for a tasting of Vietnam’s best fusion cuisine.
Head into the market early to watch women haggle over the day's fresh fish.Then you’ll head out for a great ride that loops around Hoi An, passing through traditional rice paddies and fish farms interspersed with ancestral tombs and water buffalo, finishing at our favourite cooking school in a beautiful river setting.
Bike inland to the marvelous Cham Temple of My Son, or, for a relaxing ride, pedal to the local ferry crossing to ride through some fantastic rice fields and local villages. You might even choose to cast some fishing nets on your return trip!
Take a morning flight to Ho Chi Minh City. Upon arrival you’ll head directly to the rubber plantations north of the city where you’ll bike to the Cu Chi Tunnels, which are a visible reminder of the war and how close it got to Saigon. Our final night culminates in an unforgettable dinner at our favourite market-style restaurant.
On your last day in Vietnam we’ve arranged for a private car to take you to the airport. If there is time before your flight, we will make a little game of it if you’re up for a scavenger hunt on motorbikes!

“The Tam local guide in Hoi An was fantastic and Daniel did a wonderful job. Scootering around Saigon was a blast, as was talking to the farmers and learning about their small plot farms.”
