Cycling Indochina (December 2010)
A journey through
Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam

28th November to 12th December 2010

Our journey started in Thailand and headed east to the limestone hills of the Khao Yai National Park, and then on into Cambodia.

Home to a lost civilisation, the magnificent temple complex at Angkor, the world's largest religious construction in stone, stands testament to the former power of the Khmer empire. The amazing temples and statues are in a constant struggle with the surrounding jungle.

Cambodia’s capital, Phnom Penh, is known for the infamous ‘Killing Fields’, this and the genocide museum were moving places to visit. The city had more to offer including the Royal Palace complex, bustling markets and a lively waterfront.

On into Vietnam, and after two days in the Mekong Delta, the end of the journey was in busy Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon). The city operates at an incredible pace with masses of bicycles, rickshaws and mopeds that are so much a part of South East Asian life.
