Day 1 | Arrival in Udon Thani

Enjoy your first night of the Mekong Tour at a chic boutique resort near the Udon Thani city park. During the Vietnam War, the city was a well-known air force base.

Day 2 | Udon Thani – Nong Khai81 km, flat

From today onwards, the Mekong River will be our constant companion for much of the tour. We ride to the border town of Nong Khai, which was once a well-known trading center. Here, the impressive Friendship Bridge connects Thailand to Laos.

Day 3 | Nong Khai – Ban Muang140 km, flat

We ride past countless rice fields and water buffalo, providing a stark contrast to our colourful cycling jerseys. We ride through multiple villages, all boasting their own temple.

Day 4 | Ban Muang – Sakon Nakhon125 km, flat

During the ride we visit an organic farm and enjoy fresh homemade delicacies.

Day 5 | Sakon Nakhon – Nakhon Phanom113 km, flat

Our flat ride along the Thai side of the bank of the River Mekong is a distinct contrast to our views of the mountainous Laotian side of the river. The day’s ride finishes in Nakhon Phanom, boasting an impressive temple visited by many Buddhists.

Day 6 | A day of rest0 km, quiet

Day 7 | Nakhon Phanom – Mukdahan101 km, undulating

The rice fields now make way for a more hilly and forested terrain. The Mekong Bridge connects Thailand’s Mukdahan with the Laotian Savannakhet. Mukdahan’s exotic Indochine market invites you to browse through the local specialties.

Day 8 | Mukdahan – Khemmarat89 km, lightly rolling

We follow the Mekong river. Khemmarat is an idyllic, sleepy town that enchants with its rural charm.

Day 9 | Khemmarat – Khong Chiam122 km, flat

Our resort towers over the river with a wonderful view of Laos. Here the Mun River merges with the Mekong.

Day 10 | Khong Chiam – Ubon Ratchathani84 km, rolling/flat

We say goodbye to the Mekong River and leave the Thai-Laos border region. We move into a savannah-like landscape that alternates with mixed forests. Here, Laos, Cambodia and Thailand form a triangle of three corners.

Day 11 | Individual onward journey
