Welcome, dear travellers! We used to exchange our winter weather into summer temperature for several years. We enjoyed to cycle in New Zealand, the Canary Islands, and Morocco in February and March. In 2017 we are going to continue our winter season trips, we have planned a route through exotic Cambodia and South Vietnam.
We will cycle around the plains, sail in Cambodia, climb mountains in Vietnam, visit magnificent waterfalls, swim in the South China Sea, and visit the most famous local destinations. The trip will start from the capital city of Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh (former Saigon). The first day will be dedicated to visit its attractions. Then, we will cycle along the roads of the plain and in 4 days reach the capital city of Cambodia, Phnom Penh. One day will be dedicated to looking around this previously closed city. Then we will take a boat to cross the largest lake of Cambodia, Tonle Sap, and reach the small town of Phnom Krom. We will spend one day and two nights in the small town of Siemreab, where we will get in touch with the history of Cambodia, visiting, among others, the famous Angkor Wat temple of XII century protected by UNESCO.
After Angkor Wat and other famous places, we will turn to the east, to Vietnam, and reach the mountains. We are going to visit the city of Da Lat situated at the altitude of 1 km. There are numerous magnificent waterfalls around Da Lat, and we will see some of them.
Then, we will go down the mountains to the South, towards the Mũi Né peninsula at the South China Sea. From there, we will cycle along the coast to ThangTamo, and then turn to the final destination – Ho Chi Minh, where our trip will end.
See you soon in the hot South-East Asia!
