Vietnam & Cambodia Custom-2018

Ho Chi Minh City to Siem Reap

Travel from the bustling South to the more tranquil and conservative North, cycling through some of the most beautifully lush landscapes you can imagine.

Even the simplest of exchanges, meals, bike rides, walks or chance encounters at a market will give you a unique perspective on how the Vietnamese live, work, and celebrate life. We’ll spend the last days of our journey in Cambodia, exploring the breathtaking Angkor Temple complex. What makes Vietnam and Cambodia truly special are the wonderful sights, sounds, smells, tastes and feel of a place so stimulating and different from home.

Our itineraries are an approximation of our trips. Trek Travel strives to offer each and every guest a vacation of a lifetime on every trip. At times routes, hotels, activities, etc. listed here may change at the discretion of the trip designer or guides to improve the trip experience.

On all of our vacations, Trek Travel strives to find quiet, paved secondary roads or bike paths to experience a region; busy roads are avoided as much as possible. Vietnam and Cambodia are best suited for our Type 2 Riders. Our Trek Travel guides can also easily accommodate Type 1 Riders, who seek less mileage or fewer uphills, with a boost in the van. Those who wish to ride every mile but are concerned about their physical ability may want to try our electric bike option–you still get a workout but can climb alongside even the strongest rider. Type 3 Riders will enjoy the extra mileage the avid route options offer. See day by day itinerary for specific daily ride distance and elevation options.

There is a taxi stand in front of the main terminal where you can hail a taxi to take you to the meeting day hotel. The best taxis to take are Mai Linh (green logo) or VinaSun (red logo). The transfer takes about 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the time of day, and will cost approximately $10 US Dollars.

We recommend flying out of the Siem Reap Airport (REP). Your local guides or the hotel can help you arrange for a taxi to take you to the airport at the conclusion of the trip.

Your Trek Travel guides will meet you at Hotel Park Hyatt Saigon (2 Lam Son Square, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Vietnam) at 8:30 AM on the first day of the trip. We will then shuttle 2.5 hours to Cai Be, in the heart of the Mekong Delta. You should have your cycling gear in a small bag separate from your main luggage or be dressed ready to ride.

If you will be late for the pick-up or are going to miss it altogether, please inform your guides. You will receive an email a week before the trip start with their names and contact details. If you cannot reach them, please call our first hotel, Victoria Can Tho Resort (+84 710 381 0111), and leave a message with your expected arrival time and contact details.

Planning For Your Trip

Before and After Your Trip

before

Before: Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

The Vietnamese capital offers a multitude of restaurants serving traditional fare such as pho, the delicious soup that is not to be missed. The French left their mark here—the city center is rife with wide boulevards and historic colonial buildings. The 19th century Notre Dame Cathedral was originally built with all materials imported from France. Take a stroll through the New Ben Thanh Market in the Pham Ngu Lao neighborhood—you’ll find everything here! Approximately 35km from the city, you can find the Ci Chi Tunnels, a testament to the strong will of the Vietnamese during the war. If you are in Ho Chi Minh City on a Sunday morning, you might catch a live band at the Saigon Opera House. Local bands occasionally put on free performances here. We recommend the following accommodations for your pre-trip hotel:

after

After: Siem Reap, Cambodia

This town, which is actually a cluster of small villages, is the gateway to the world-famous Angkor temples. In the Old French Quarter, the area around Sivutha Street and the Psar Chas, there is Chinese-style and colonial architecture among the shops. The jewelry and craft shops can be found in the Psar Leu area. A visit to the Angkor National Museum will give you a deeper understanding of the archeological finds. If you can, catch an Apsara dance performance, the traditional Khmer dance. These are meant to convey a story or message, and are not merely dance. Check out the floating market on the river to Tonle Sap Lake, either by riverboat or in a guided tour. This freshwater lake is the largest in the country. We recommend the following accommodations for your post-trip hotel:
