Mekong Tour - 15 days

, Thailand, Asia

Forget glossy travel magazines featuring sand beaches of Koh Samui and Phuket. This tour takes you to “real Thailand”, to the least developed part region of Northeast, Isaan. There the life runs at a slow pace as centuries ago and old traditions have survived the fast lane of 20th century. As on all our tours we start riding in the town near Thai-Cambodian border. We shall cross the border, visit World heritage site of Angkor Wat – temples of the lost city overgrown by jungles for 5 centuries (Tomb Raider movie) and continue ride among rice paddies of Isaan plateau to Mekong River’s Emerald triangle.
1000 km ride along the mighty river follows. Scenery varies from wide slow running stream that is also a Thai - Laos border to rapids in mountain valleys. Along the way we visit forest Buddhist temples built on monolith rocks, waterfalls in the extreme North East, noisy Indochina markets in Nong Khai and Mukdahan, take a boat trip to Mun River rapids and even pop across the border to enjoy relaxing tree-lined avenues of the capital city of Laos – Vientiane.
We brave several mountain passes in Loei province, ride through hilly Petchabun province and cross the plains of Wichian Buri to reach winding roads of rainforest clad mountain ranges with herds of wild elephants and finish our ride in our base town. Visas are arranged at the border crossings.
