This new cycling tour being offered by Grasshopper Adventures is the essential discovery trip of Thailand, Cambodia and the Mekong Delta of Vietnam. The trip includes a wide variety of dynamic riding over 445 km, ranging from single-lane bike trails to remote back roads through the countryside. For the foodie traveler, this tour showcases three different Southeast Asian cuisines with an emphasis on fresh vegetables, fish, and seafood. For those who crave cultural immersion and wish to connect with village life of Southeast Asia, there could not be a better trip.
“This tour may be epic in terms of its scope, but it is an achievable and enjoyable one with a high degree of comfort at our overnight stops,” said Grasshopper Adventures CEO, Adam Platt-Hepworth. “It is sure to be a humbling, rewarding, and exciting experience discovering the heart and soul of Southeast Asia. There are hardly any hills and no distances over 80 km on any day.”
