A must thing that you must do on your holiday. The top six cycling destinations in Asia.

1/ Siem Reap, Cambodia

  • A country full of smiles and very friendly
    Cambodia is listed in the top 5 of the world’s friendliest countries. People here are very shy but likely smiling at you to get started, either in conversation or whatever you need help with. Cambodian believe that a bilingual language is the key to unlocking the door, so most of us can speak really good English. 
  • A Land Full of spectacular ancient temples all over the place.
    The history of the Khmer Empire is very legendary and glorious. The king had left thousands of temples all over the country, most of them in Siem Reap province. The well-known to the world is Angkor Wat Temple and it’s the top tourist destination.
  • Countryside life of Khmer people
    Cycling is the only way to get into the local places and experience life beyond the tourist attractions. Go and see how people live around the great Tonle Sap Lake, by doing farming, and fishing.
  • Nature 
    Temples are covered by jungle for centuries, until now that you can cycle through villages, countryside, and forest to reach the temples.

2/ Bangkok, Thailand

  • Exploring nontourist places
    Bangkok is huge, it’s hard to get around without a taxi or tuk-tuk and it might take a lot of your time to places by walking. Get a bike and go on your own, you’ll find the best places that no one else could.
  • Biking is the best way for sight-seeing
    It’s hard to choose or it’s too many choices for the tour? Renting a bike or joining a bicycle tour is a lot better than you think. Go bike freedom, stop whenever you want,  for a break, or sightseeing along the way.
  • Visit the hidden gem
    If you’re walking, then you can just explore the nearby hidden gem, but with cycling, you can go as far as you want out of the tourist attractions but the interesting places outside that you found on the way.
