rip Profile:

This Cambodia, Thailand and Laos Cycling Tour starts from Angkor, Cambodia to cycle through eastern part of Thailand and finishes in Luang Prabang, the World Heritage site. We start cycling to visit Angkor complex and former Khmer Rouge strong hold, then to Surin. From there, we cycle to visit the Elephant Village and cycle on the most beatiful rural part of Thailand to enjoy the scenery, the endless sugar cane farm and casava.

We aim to take tourists to see REAL Cambodia, Thailand through the northeastern part of Thailand UNTOUCHED by tourists. This trip is suitable for both road bike and mountain bike as the rural roads in Thailand is very small but nicely paved and in good conditions comparing to the rural roads in neighboring Cambodia and Laos. The cycling routes for this trip is relatively flat from Cambodia to Thailand. From Vientiane to Luang Prabang, there are some hills with over 1,000 meter high.

We cross the border at Nong Khai. It is now possible to get Laos visa on arrival for USD35 per person. Please take 1 photo passport size for the visa.
