Cambodia Bike Tours
Everywhere we go in Vietnam and Cambodia, we encounter children eager to make friends with the foreigners on the shiny bikes. That disarming friendliness permeates all aspects of life here, whether we’re riding elephants through Angkor Wat, touring Hanoi’s Old Quarter with a helpful guide, or stopping to chat with the townsfolk as we ride through the small villages along the Ho Chi Minh Trail. We hope this special place hasn’t changed too much, that it won’t be any less special. So far, so good!
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 can’t say I really ‘work out,’ but I’m in good shape and am relatively active.”
“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 how I like to do that.”
