Authentic Vietnam and Cambodia

Cycling with Tour de Vines through the villages and townships of Vietnam and Cambodia is a great introduction to the cultures of the two countries. Cycling enables you to immerse yourself into the daily lives of the locals so be prepared to get hot and dusty. You can always wash away the heat of the day with a refreshing swim or a cold beer. Great company and a great experience. Totally recommend.

Awesome experience

  • To fully enjoy this guided cycling trip in Vietnam and Cambodia, you should be in good physical shape. While previous cycling experience is recommended for maximum enjoyment, the flexible approach ensures even casual beginner cyclists can join this adventure. The good news is that Vietnam and Cambodia are pretty much flat, so there are no hills of note throughout this tour. 

    There are six days of cycling. Daily rides vary between 18.5 miles/30 km and 37 miles/60 km. While some days offer longer rides, the tour is structured to accommodate varying fitness levels, allowing participants to tailor their cycling experience. There is a support vehicle throughout with the option to take a break from riding at any time. Please note that you can bring or rent an e-bike to aid your pedaling if you have little experience with steep sections. Riding an e-bike will make the adventure much less strenuous.

    To prepare for this guided bike tour, consider incorporating a mix of cardiovascular exercises and strength training into your routine to enhance overall fitness. Aim for regular cycling sessions, gradually increasing the duration and intensity to simulate the conditions of the tour.

  • To fully enjoy this guided cycling adventure in Vietnam and Cambodia, you should have some cycling experience. That said, it is enough being a casual cyclist as the difficulty level can be customized to suit your experience and preferences. Vietnam and Cambodia are pretty much flat, so there are no hills of note throughout this tour. 

    If you’re a total beginner, consider incorporating cycling to your weekly routine in the months prior to the adventure. We recommend cycling at least every weekend, covering between 10 and 20 miles (20-30 km) and increasing the distances and the intensity every week. 

  • Your guides provide lightweight alloy framed Trek or Giant mountain bikes with 24 indexed gears and front suspension (guides will generally be on hand to fix punctures and minor mechanical problems). All bikes are meticulously maintained and in a wide range of sizes; female specific saddles are also available. Helmets are also available for use or you can bring your own. Bikes and helmets are included in the price of the tour.

    You can also rent an e-bike for an additional fee. Let us know during the booking process and we will make the necessary arrangements. Designed for convenience, e-bike allows you to climb hills with ease while still providing the exercise and outdoor fun of cycling. This bike rides like a regular one but comes equipped with an added battery store, offering pedal assistance precisely when you need it. 

    Feel free to choose the bike that best suits your preferences and cycling style!

  • Here’s a list of the equipment you need to bring:

      • Duffle or a backpack for your personal belongings
      • Day pack large enough to carry all the items listed (around a 25L bag)
      • Lightweight shoes for cycling
      • Lightweight shoes for free time
      • Comfortable cycling clothes 
      • Spare clothes for layering
      • Casual clothes for free time

      • Sunhat
      • Toiletries (sunscreen, hand sanitizer, bug spray, etc.)
      • Sunglasses
      • Camera — optional (but recommended)

    Dress comfortably and for the weather in clothes you can move in. We suggest bringing clothing appropriate for the season. Layers are best and don’t wear jeans. You will get a more detailed and comprehensive list of equipment and clothes you should bring once the trip is confirmed. 

    South East Asia’s dry season runs from November to May, and it’s when temperatures are coolest. Your guides schedule this tour specifically to have us cycling in the best of the weather, sunny days, cool nights and no monsoon rains. Perfect weather can’t be guaranteed but it’s the best time to visit.

  • We know you will enjoy the quality of the properties chosen for this trip.  After a day of cycling, there is nothing better than a welcome drink, cool room and a refreshing pool dip. 

    The accommodation throughout this tour is quality 4 star, most with pools, on site restaurants, gyms and other facilities. Properties may change occasionally but typically you’ll stay at the following accommodations: 

    • Ho Chi Minh: Liberty Central Saigon Riverside Hotel

    • Ha Tien: River Ha Tien Hotel

  • Whilst Vietnamese food is well known around the world, Khmer food has come ahead in leaps and bounds and will surprise you. Traditionally comforting, with rice as a staple, recent International influences have become apparent. Rice is still the cornerstone, with the most popular Khmer dish being fish amok, a white fish steamed in a banana leaf and topped with coconut cream. Cambodia is also home to the famous Kampot Pepper, which comes from the south of the country. You’ll learn about these incredible flavors on the pepper farm tour. 

    Meals are included as per the itinerary, and your guides carefully select the best restaurants in terms of cuisine and ambience. They are happy to accommodate specific dietary requirements and allergies etc. Please leave us a note during the booking process and we will make the necessary arrangements.

  • We highly recommend that you cover all your bases with both emergency medical and travel insurance.

This covers everything from hospital treatments to emergency air transportation and more. Travel insurance covers canceled flights, natural disasters and other scenarios that may interrupt your travel plans. 

    We also expect you to respect local regulations and take measures to protect yourselves, your guides, and the communities you’re traveling to. For more information on travel recommendations and restrictions in Vietnam and Cambodia, please refer to Vietnam Tourism and Smarttraveler. You can be assured your guides are a quality operator and want nothing more for you than to have an amazing and safe travel experience.
