Biking Travel in Southeast Asia

If you're looking for a budget scenic tour of Southeast Asia combined with greater mobility and adventure, a mountain bike tour may be right up your alley. Bike touring is, as Mark Hodson from the Sunday Times puts it "the perfect holiday: cheap, fun, good for your health and kind to the environment."

Southeast Asia is riddled with well-worn mountain bike trails, all covered by experienced bike tour operators. Seeing the region from a bike seat instead of a tour bus window lets you see the country up close, and lets you set your own pace throughout the trip. You also get the feeling you're seeing the real Southeast Asia, not just pre-packaged tourist photo ops.
