Vietnam's Hanoi to Cambodia's Angkor Ruins

A biking adventure through this corner of Southeast Asia is something to savor. Like a Vietnamese coffee, this trip is bold and invigorating. It's sweet too, like the smiling faces you'll see as you ride past farmers tending lush rice paddies. And it's well-balanced, with an intriguing contrast of frenetic cities and tranquil villages. From vibrant Vietnam to the mesmerizing ancient temples, quiet red-dirt roads and lush jungles of Cambodia, you'll want to experience every last drop of this journey.

Straight talk

We want to make sure you're on the right trip and that you have the best experience possible. Every Backroads trip is unique and this one is no exception.

Biking in an Emerging World

Your journey through Vietnam and Cambodia will probably be unlike any other travel experience. The people you'll meet and places you'll visit will likely stay with you for a very long time. As wonderfully fulfilling as travel is in this region, it's not always easy. These are developing countries and even something as simple as crossing the road can be a challenge.

Our itineraries and Trip Leaders remove as many obstacles and inconveniences as possible, making your next extraordinary encounter always within reach. Of course, we can't remove haze and noise from the air, or replace a poorly maintained road. But if you can be flexible and approach the region with an open mind, you'll enjoy your trip to the fullest! Due to the varied road conditions on our routes, we have specially fitted our bikes in Vietnam and Cambodia to maximize your comfort and control. In Vietnam, you'll have the choice of Backroads bicycles with upright or drop handlebars. In Cambodia, all Backroads bikes come with upright handlebars, as the terrain includes some rough roads with dirt and sand sections. Upright handlebars are safer and more comfortable over these mixed-surface roads.

Internal Flights

On this trip we occasionally travel by plane to reach the exclusive hotels and activities this destination has to offer. We'll be flying commercially with Vietnam Airways aboard a narrow-body jet that seats 236 passengers and with Cambodian Angkor Air aboard a turboprop plane that seats 72 passengers.
