Lost In Time - Cycling Trip
2 weeks: Bangkok to Vientiane (LTV19)This is Red Spokes most popular tour, this is a fascinating trip beginning in Northern Thailand then through Northern Laos finishing in the capital Vientiane. You will witness some of the most breath-taking scenery in Asia.
Laos is a beautiful, quiet country still relatively untouched by the western values. It is mountainous and land-locked, with a population of only 6 million people who have a reputation for being amongst the most friendly and welcoming in the world. With its spectacular scenery and its rich and diverse culture what better view could there be of Laos than the view from a bike?
A mixture of hotels and family run guest houses.
The tour enters Laos across the Mekong from Thailand, followed by a spectacular boat trip down the river before exploring the lush jungles of the northern mountains. We take a break in Luang Prabang, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1995. This ancient royal city, full of exquisite Buddhist Temples, where time seems to stand still, is a magical place to explore and rest. Some serious riding then takes us to the sleepy capital of Vientiane.
