The right number of like-minded travellers to make new friends.
Your dates. Your group. Our expertly-designed itinerary.
Tailored to your interests, a bespoke travel experience.
Combines the hallmarks of any B&R itinerary (excellent hotels and beautiful routes) with the freedom of pacing each day exactly the way you like.
Throughout the day, a knowledgeable local guide provides insider access and expert tips. At night, you can explore and dine on your own.
Our B&R guides are with you throughout, anticipating needs, translating languages, providing advice and—above all—facilitating fun.
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 is how I like to do that.”
Three countries; endless possibilities
We begin Hanoi and make our way towards Ninh Binh, where we’ll cycle for two days through tropical countryside. Continue to Laos, discovering a UNESCO-protected city filled with colonial architecture, a Buddhist legacy and miles of Mekong-side riding. Complete your journey exploring Siem Reap’s ancient Khmer temples of Angkor and the overwhelmingly friendly people of Cambodia. Seeing all three of these countries by bicycle is the perfect way to connect in an intimate and memorable way.
*Price is inclusive of $395 internal flights

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 Zaslaw
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 Berman
The biking is along flat roads, and the walking is on the paths through the temple complexes.
“I ride my bike once or twice a month and am comfortable on two wheels.”
Relatively flat but will include inclines and the occasional climb or two.Read more on our Activity Levels
