Adventure World has released its Exodus Cycling Asia collection, showcasing an array of active adventure holidays in Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar, Indonesia, Thailand, Bhutan and Sri Lanka.
The joy of an Asian cycling holiday is all about the senses – getting a waft of herbs being prepared for lunch in a village, hearing chanting from the nearby monastery, or waving at groups of children on their way to school. Cycling brings travellers closer to the destination, offering experiences they couldn’t find any other way.
Adventure World has outlined the top 5 Asian destinations for cycling explorers, from the diverse landscapes of Indonesia to the foodie haven of Vietnam.
Indochina & Angkor – Best for crossing borders: A rolling meander through three distinctly different countries, each with their own tasty specialties to sample along the way.
India – Best for history: In a country as diverse as India, it can feel almost impossible to narrow down which region to visit. Fortunately, India abounds with exciting opportunities – so getting on a bike is one of the best ways for travellers to uncover India’s many incredible historic spots.
Vietnam – Best for foodies: Journey the length of this fascinating country experiencing frenetic towns and vast coastline as travellers make their way from south to north, ending with a night on a traditional boat cruising the waters of Halong Bay.
Myanmar (Burma) – Best for temples: A journey like no other – a country on the brink of huge change, but still very new to tourism, awaits visitors. Expect a consistently warm and friendly welcome and marvel at the multitude of gold glistening temples, floating markets and colonial remains.
Indonesia – Best for volcanoes: Indonesia doesn’t do things by halves. This is Asia at its most dramatic and awe-inspiring. Adventure World explores the volcano-studded island of Java and the lush wildlife-filled interior of Bali.
Popular itineraries highlighted in the new catalogue include Cycling Vietnam, a 14-day journey from South to North, from $2555 per person; Southern India Coast to Coast Ride, a 14-day ride past some of the most impressive sites in Southern India, from $3995 per person; and Cycling Indonesia’s Islands, a 13-day exploration of Bali and Java, from $2995 per person.
Adventure World’s full Cycle Asia brochure will be revealed in the coming months.
