Biking is a nice and active way of discovering a destination. Especially while on a MICE trip it is a good way to do some teambuilding and sightseeing all at the same time. Since Southeast Asia is a nice destination to explore by bike, we have selected three interesting biking routes for you, together with Southeast Asia specialist Saffron Travel.
Vietnam’s Dalat cooler climate and pine covered hills provide a great setting for biking and there are many tour options available. Think of: Dalat – Bidoup National Park – Nha Trang, Dalat – Di Linh Town – Mui Ne Beach , Dalat – Lak Lake – Buon Ma Thuat – Ngoc Hoi – Hoi An. You will have the chance to cycle through forests, villages, local farmland and along coastal roads. All the way down to stunning beaches.
Inle Lake Myanmar
The shores of Inle lake in Myanmar and surrounding hills are also a dream environment for cycling. Not only does the lake itself provide a beautiful backdrop, there is so much to visit by bike. For example the local vineyards, which are producing international standard wine, are a pleasant stop during any bike ride. The numerous temples and minority villages that can be accessed by bike and the large lake makes it possible for you to spend many relaxing days exploring its surroundings.
Roluos is a small town in Cambodia and an archeological site about 13 km east of Siem Reap. Once it was the seat of Hariharalay, the first capital of the Khmer Empire north of Tonle Sap. Among the “Rolous Group” of temples are some of the earliest permanent structures built by Khmer. They mark the beginning of the classical period of Khmer civilisation, dating from the late 9th century. Some were totally built with bricks, others partially with laterite or sandstone. Cycle through these impressive ruins on a journey through time. The tour continues with a short boat ride to a floating village, through flooded mangrove forests and a picnic lunch.
