- Difficulty Level
Level 1: Occasional
Biking – 40-50 km (25-30 mi.) a day over relatively flat terrain with a few small hills—all very manageable for people trying their first biking trip.
Walking – 6-10 km (4-6 mi.) a day on country lanes, footpaths and coastal or forest trails, all on relatively flat terrain, perhaps with an occasional hill.
Level 2: Recreational
Biking – 40-50 km (25-30 mi.) a day over terrain that’s relatively flat but will include inclines and the occasional climb or two.
Walking – 8-12 km (5-7 mi.) a day over relatively flat terrain, with occasional steeper climbs.
Level 3: Enthusiast
Biking – 40-50 km (25-30 mi.) a day in gently rolling countryside, with occasional longer climbs to points that are well worth the effort.
Walking – 11-15 km (7-10 mi.) a day over rolling terrain on a variety of surfaces. Most days, one or two steeper climbs to spectacular viewpoints or places of interest.
Level 4: Avid
Biking – Roughly 50 km (30 mi.) a day in consistently rolling countryside, with repeated climbs and longer options available.
Walking – 11-15 km (7-10 mi.) over terrain that varies between rolling and hilly, with a few steeper climbs.
Level 5: Expert
Biking – 50-60 km (30-45 mi.) a day over both level and tougher, hillier terrain with multiple 100 km (62 mi.) options. The routes are designed for avid cyclists and include plenty of chances to push yourself.
Walking – 11-15 km (7-10 mi.) a day over fairly hilly terrain offering lots of challenges. Routes are along high meadow paths and/or well-maintained cliffside or alpine trails, with a few steep ascents to make you feel invigorated.
Two countries; endless possibilities
In Laos, discover a UNESCO-protected city filled with colonial architecture, a Buddhist legacy, and miles of tranquil Mekong-side riding with lush landscapes on the horizon. Switch gears and explore Siem Reap’s ancient Khmer temples of Angkor at sunrise and revel in the hospitality of the exceptionally friendly Cambodian locals. Across these unique regions, connect with the vibrant nature and culture through rare intimate experiences.

Day by Day
Hike west from town to reach the tranquil Tad Sae Waterfall, a perfect oasis for a picnic lunch. Tonight, an old traditional ceremony welcomes us to Laos.
From the hotel, pedal along the Mekong into rural landscapes where a boat brings us to Pak Ou Cave to explore the sanctuaries. Unwind back at your hotel before discovering Luang Prabang's highlights.
Rise early to witness 600 saffron-clad monks carry out an extraordinary ritual. Relax at breakfast by the waterfalls then bike along rolling hills before hopping on your flight — Next stop, Cambodia!
Feel the warmth of the sunrise at Ta Prohm temple, enveloped by the dense wild jungle. Later, visit the magnificent Angkor Wat before a sunset dinner and lively local performance.
Take an immersive visit to the revered Temples of Bayon before pedaling through a jungle of silk, cotton and fig trees. The rest of the day is yours to decide—explore by bike, wander on foot or relax by boat.
After your flight to Phnom Penh, you'll be introduced to the town's most prominent historical sites—from the Royal Palace to the Russian Market. Tonight, a special final night celebration awaits us.
After breakfast and goodbyes, a final exploration by Vespa shows you the city highlights while expertly navigating the dense traffic. In late afternoon, depart for your onward flight. Safe Travels!
Rosewood Phnom Penh, Phnom Penh
Soaring 188 meters above the heart of Phnom Penh’s business district, Rosewood Phnom Penh occupies the top 14 floors of Vattanac Capital Tower, the city’s most iconic modern structure and a symbol of the new Cambodia. The tasteful rooms blend traditional refinement with sophistication, and each room offers unparalleled views of the city.
Jaya House River Park, Siem Reap
An irresistible package of sustainability, luxury and style, this boutique hotel engages fully in the natural and cultural life of Siem Reap: they have planted 849 trees around their location on the Siem Reap River and have eliminated 95% of their plastic waste. Intriguing art and garden displays in the beautiful grounds add to the fresh, dynamic feel. The high number of return visitors at this hotel shows that their commitment to sustainability, environmental and otherwise, has been a wise choice. If you’d rather spend a day at the hotel, the stunning pools and spa (one free hour of treatment per day!) invite you to relax and refresh in an oasis of tranquillity.
Amantaka, Luang Prabang
The Amantaka incorporates a French colonial building and is designed around a spacious and relaxing courtyard in a tranquil setting. Perhaps best of all, the Amantaka is located right in town; walk out the gates of your private oasis, and you are immediately immersed in the beautiful lantern-lit streets of beautiful and vibrant Luang Prabang.
I don’t know how B&R does it – the quality of their trips is so consistently high! Just when we think they couldn’t do anything as good as our last trip, they do! Another fantastic experience with B&R.— Carolyn
Felt like I had everything I needed in terms of packing, expectations for activities, visas, etc. They reached out early and often, which I appreciated. I never felt like I had to reach out to them.—Elizabeth
The biking is along flat roads, and the walking is on the paths through the temple complexes.
What’s included? Everything you need. Plus everything you’d
want. Plus a few things you never knew you wanted ‘til you got them.

Extend Your Laos & Cambodia Trip
If you have the time we strongly encourage you to extend your trip. Southeast Asia is full of incredible regions, each unique yet very close to one another.
