    This was one of the most amazing trips i've done so far! Amazing scenery, people and a great company to do it with. Thank you!What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?There were so many! I loved the small villages we passed through that had such happy children wanting to say hello and high five. I thought the temples in Cambodia were awe inspiring. The home stay was fantastic! The entire trip was amazing!What did you think of your group leader?Are group leader was exactly what is required in a group of are size and willfulness. Authoritive when required, Caring and supportive when neccesary, Fun and amusing, but above all, very informative, social and instructive. Thanks Nee.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Enjoy the trip rather than thinking of the next destination. Its very easy to think about the next cycle stop and power through until all the cycling for the day is complete, with out actually enjoying the scenery, views, and place to its full extent. The holiday seems to go so quickly when you do this. Just slow down a little when passing through villages and gorgeous scenary and remember you can stop for photographs at anytime.

Fun, exciting, energetic and an engaging experience!What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?The welcoming joy of the children in the more remote places.What did you think of your group leader?Absolutely excellent!

Nee (and her helpful assistants) went a long way to making this the fabulous trip that it was.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Arrive in Bangkok a few days prior and spend some time there before the cycle.Is there anything else you would like to add?A brilliant experience, with brilliant people, and the best way to see this part of the world!

    The whoe trip was thoroughly enjoyable and well organized.  Our trip leader Rit was a bastion of calmness and common sense, making sure thta everyone had everything they needed.  In Cambodia, Fila was passionate about his country and made the visit both enjoyable and enlightening.  In Vietnam, Tiet guided us well and gave us a good insight into life in VietnamThe group was of mixed abilities with everyone fully commitiing to the holiday.  The cycle was long at the start but soon a rhythm was established.  What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Angkor Wat was the highlight of the trip for me

    An amazingly well coordinated trip with a huge effort put in from the leader and her 'aides'.  What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Seeing and being part of the countries  lifestyle's  and seeing the countries as they actually are. The safety consciousness taken for the clients to the utmost level.What did you think of your group leader?Unforgetable and very, very responsible and helpful.  It was mentioned among the group (several who had travelled with Exodus and other companies) that she was the best they had ever come across.   Is there anything else you would like to add?Sadly I felt that the Vietnamese support group let the quality of the rest of the journey down.  In all aspects.Also not keen on tipping at the end of each leg after we had already put in $55 tip kitty.  One way or the other.

    Just finished the cycle and can only say positive things, the teams on every leg of the journey is amazing, we had a mixed group of ability and no one was every left behind. The team have a safety first policy and if there is one thing about this trip, you will never leave feeling hungry thirsty or not knowing the answer to every question you have. What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?The local people The amazing guidesWhat did you think of your group leader?You could not ever ask for better! Nee was amazing there 24/7 whenever you needed her, she was was fun but serious when she needed to be when it came to your safety. And I should not forget Dyka and Yan, fun and knowledge of Cambodia and Vietnam is second to none.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Book !! Just come and have a great time. I was travelling alone but the group and the guides made me feel from day one that we were all on the trip as one. You will have a great time.Is there anything else you would like to add?The guides where second to now, and exodus policies where exceptional

    An excellent trip, made all the better by having an excellent Tour Guide, Nee, and helpers and an excellent group to be with.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Difficult to pin this one down to a single moment. Cycling through three different Asian countries and seeing the differing countryside and experiencing the different cultures (albeit briefly in many instances) was great. Getting roasted in 40 degree heat and then soaked 10 minutes later I also found great. Seeing the Wats aren't necessarily my sort of thing, but Angkor Wat was good and the other temples were just as interesting in their own way.The most moving part for me was seeing the Floating Village where you can appreciate how lucky we are compared to how other families have to live. Similarly, visiting the Killing Fields and S21 was an emotional day.What did you think of your group leader?Excellent. I'd seen previous reviews saying how good Nee was and was pleased when it was her that picked us up at the airport. She was experienced at doing the trip and this showed. She was confident and informative at all times. She managed to get 18 of us up and out at the right time and, although it didn't show, she paced the group well to get us where we were going and arrive at reasonable times. She got to know the abilities and requirements of each member of the group very quickly thereby keeping all of us happy. She was always observant noticing if anything wasn't right and primarily, she kept us as safe as possible.Further, the logistics of organising 18 people through 2 border crossings, in different hotels most nights, with different guides, different Support and Mechanical teams in different countries, and all the organisation for the individual buses to the Temples or from Seam Reap to Phnom Penn for example etc., this must be immense but it happened seamlessly. So good organisational skills too.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Don't overpack. You can get laundry done at various points and is good and cheap.Many of our group cycled in Sandals and they were fine so Quick Drying shoes would be good (but with a toe cap for protection and a stiffish sole).A waterproof camera (if you're into taking pictures) as you don't generally have to carry anything on your bike but may want to take a snap or two.Be prepared to get wet in the rainy season. You won't get cold though. It's a personal choice whether you use a waterproof - Many didn't on our trip and were fine.Is there anything else you would like to add?The first few days in Thailand are the hardest cycle days so be prepared for that but it's mainly flat so generally manageable.Be prepared to spend about $150 to $170 in tips in total (Incl the Tour Guide). Although there is a 'tipping' kitty which is great there always seems to be another collection for a guide who isn't part of the kitty which can get confusing and tedious. But you just need to remember that there are an awful lot of people that assist you throughout the trip and over 14 days and it's still very reasonable. If in doubt about choosing this trip, don't be, go for it, it was great.

    This was quite probably the best holiday of my life so far. The countries were so beautiful and interesting, even more so than I'd hoped, and the people were wonderful too and really made the trip. The whole trip was incredibly well-organised and while expensive, worth every penny.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?There were so many amazing and inspirational moments, but for me the standout moment was visiting a school that Exodus supported in a rural village in Cambodia. The community had so little materially but it was amazing to meet the children and the man trying to help them learn against all of the odds.It was also very special and a real privilege to be shown around the temples of Angkor Wat by our wonderful guide, who had lost his father and other family members under the Khmer Rouge regime. He gave us a true sense of the bloody history of Cambodia but also demonstrated a huge pride in the wonderful country that it is, and the capacity of the Cambodians to forgive and move on into the future.Other standout moments including racing on wonderful roads in Thailand in 38 degree heat and enoying competing with other people in the trip. I loved it! What did you think of your group leader?Our group leader Nee was really great. She was a real discplinarian but with 16 or 17 people all wanting to do things their own way, that was definitely needed. She whipped us all into shape in terms of timekeeping and was really good at working out what worked for different people in the group. She was funny and interesting and I would definitely recommend her. The other team leaders were also fantastic, in particular Fila, who was team leader in Cambodia. Again he was really knowledgeable, passionate about his country and ensuring that we all learnt more about it, but in a really accessible, fun and entertaining way. I think Exodus has chosen some really brilliant team leaders on this particular trip.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Just be open to the new experiences you are going to have and don't presume anything. It is good to try everything - though maybe not the fried tarantulas in Cambodia! - and just to enjoy every moment. In retrospect, I would have taken more snacks and pencils etc to give to the children in Cambodia. Also stick to dollars rather than worrying about other currencies, each of the countries accepts dollars and it saves you wandering around with pockets stuffed with huge amounts of foreign currency worth about 30pence.Other than that, use lots of sunscreen, take lots of pictures and just have an amazing time.  Is there anything else you would like to add?I really did have an absolutely amazing holiday, potentially life-changing. Travelling in this area was like nowhere else I had ever been and to see so many new sights, scenery and have the privilege of meeting so many amazing Thai, Cambodian and Vietnamese people was wonderful. I can't wait to book my next Exodus cycling trip.

    Well organised trip, loved the three countries, although I found Thailand a bit dull, Cambodia was great the food very tasty, lots to see and impressive, Vietnam was great again lots to take in, loved the homestay very friendly great food. I think we definiately made the local laugh on the many ferry crossing one day as we were the only ones in life jackets (was it really necessary). Only one restaurant in vietnam I have to complain about, but thats me being picky.  The accommodation was more than adequate. Overall a fab holiday and highly recommended. What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Cambodia is an awesome place Siem Reap was my best moments there.Saigon is motorbike city a leap of faith just crossing the roads, but brill again. What did you think of your group leader?Siam was brillant and fun helped me out when my bags didn't arrive when I did.Digger Cambodian guide was brill too, couldn't do enough for you.Lingh Vietnan guide again brill liked to sing lots kept us entertained, very safety conscious.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Don't need rabbies injection, had no trouble at all with dogs.  Even in end Feb it was quite hot, so if your not used to the heat make sure your fit enough to cope with 3 long days of cycling in the heat, even though we stopped every 10k to cool down. After that the cycling is easy.  The so called hilly day they tease you about is nothing to worry about, they obviously have no idea of what mountain climb looks like, even though they are around you, they clearly stay away from them.Is there anything else you would like to add?Could of done with more euthentic meals especially in Vietnam, there was one lovely lunch by a river, it was too early unfortunately, very tasty but people were too full from breakfast. And the homestay food was great. Had no idea we were making our own dinner, still fun.

    Great Holiday with like minded peopleWhat was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Seeing Angkor Wat at sunrise, it was well worth getting up at 5am.This should be the time to start the tour of Ankgor Wat as later in the afternoon the heat becomes unbearable also there are a milion other Tourists.What did you think of your group leader?Our Leader Siam was brilliant even though he had just ridden with us 10-15k when we stopped for a break he was around the group making sure we all had drinks, snacks and answered endless question with a big smile on his face.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Make sure you are at least a little bit fit and you will enjoy it much more, don't bother taking energy drinks or bars are the kitty provide plenty of them.

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

  • I'm trying to understand the difference between Cycle Indochina & Angkor - Premium and Cycle Indochina & Angkor.

    The difference between the two trips is the accommodation. Please see below the explanation for this.

    Upgraded Hotels and Guesthouses:

    Our premium departures either stay in the same hotels we usually use on our standard trips but in upgraded rooms with balconies or larger rooms, as some examples of the main differences. Some of the hotels have been upgraded and changed entirely. We will still stay in the standard guesthouse in the Mekong Delta on premium trips despite this not being premium accommodation, as this is regarded as a highlight by many people. An extra BBQ dinner is also included on the first night of the trip and drinks and snacks are included whilst cycling for parts of the trip.

    The itinerary itself is still the same on both trips.
    There are only a few dates set aside for the 'Premium' departure.
