Asia Bike Tours

Vietnam & Laos

We start in Ha Long Bay, Vietnam, where famed limestone islands rise magically from the water’s surface, offering spectacular scenery along with floating villages that stretch the limits of believability and are like nothing else on earth. Next, our private seaplanes fly us west to Ninh Binh where we’ll cycle for two days through tropical countryside. We finish in Laos, which offers a UNESCO protected city filled with colonial architecture, a Buddhist legacy and miles and miles of Mekong-side riding. If you choose, continue on to our Cambodia post-trip to explore Siem Reap’s ancient Khmer temples of Angkor and the overwhelmingly friendly people of Cambodia.

Signature

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.

Bistro

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.

My Kingdom for a (Teak) House: How I Turned a Myanmar Mayor’s Home into a Personal Pop-up Hotel

When I first set out on the eastern shore of Inle Lake into the Pa-O kingdom, I wasn’t sure what I was going to find. The sanctions were still up, I was going into a place where the only known maps are hand drawn, and my task was a tall one: to ask locals to let us take over their houses for a night so they could be remade into pop-up hotels for foreigners.
