Cycling the 25,000+ km from London to Melbourne is easy. It’s finding the right place and people to give away over £12,000 to that’s difficult! When first confronted with the adventure of cycling half way around the world, the freezing mountain tops of Turkey, the barren lands of Iran and the chaos of India seemed [...]

Cycling Peninsular Malaysia to Singapore

Cycling through the peninsular of Malaysia can be pretty amazing at times but it does lack the gloss and natural beauty of southern Thailand. There are a lot more highways that you are forced onto and the service road is not nearly as generous. Saying that, the food is a lot more varied and the [...]

Hands down, Thailand is one of the best countries in the world for cycle touring. The roads are in excellent condition, the people are super friendly and endless roadside 7-elevens offer air conditioning and chilled water! The best part of cycling through Thailand is the extremely courteous bicycle lanes and/or service roads. The is barely [...]

We were in and out of Laos in less than two weeks, but still managed to capture the beauty of this fantastic country. Entering the border from the south on the Vietnam side, we had the joy of cycling across the mountain range before getting to Attapue and then Pakse before taking on the well [...]

Laos is reported to be some of the best cycling in the world, but it is a country of two halves. The south offers solid highways, good distance and quality roads. With a couple of mountain ranges in there for some altitude, cycling south Laos is a great way to get from Cambodia to northern [...]

Vietnam is an amazing country to visit. From the fantastic food to the beautiful scenery, a shot in any direction is like a shot out of National Geographic. We were lucky enough to spend six weeks in Vietnam and spent all of that time just in the south. Entering the country through the southern most [...]

The sexual exploitation, trafficking and sale of women, aged as young as 12, in Laos and it’s neighbor, Thailand. Sentenced to a locked room and forced to have sex with up to 20 ‘clients’ per day. If they are lucky, they do not get badly beaten too often. We all know that it happens because [...]

The USA dropped more bombs on Laos during the Vietnam War than all the bombs combined, dropped by every country for the entire duration of World War II. And the USA were not even at war with Laos, Laos was neutral. From 1964 to 1973, the U.S. dropped more than two million tons of ordnance [...]

Cycling through Vietnam is pure bliss on so many levels. The food is incredible (especially coming from Cambodia!), the Mekong Delta is flat and beautifully scenic and the coast up to Nha Trang is as good a place as any in SE Asia to relax in a hammock, swinging in a gentle breeze under a [...]

You can get whatever you want from Cambodia, be it a beach fun holiday with loads of beer and backpackers in Sihanoukville, a visit to the ‘Tomb Raider’ style temples of Angkor Wat or an insight into the horrors of the Khmer Rouge and the recent history of the local people. We spent a total [...]
