1 Day | 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.

2 Day | Udon Thani – Nong Khai100 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.

3 Day | Nong Khai – Bung Kan140 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.

4 Day | Bung Kan – Ban Phaeng85 km, flat

We begin the day on foot, climbing the mountain temple Wat Phu Tok - Thailand's “Stairway to Heaven”. The view from the top is breathtakingly beautiful. After lunch, we start the 85km of cycling for the day.

5 Day | Ban Phaeng – Nakhon Phanom98 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.

6 Day | Ban Phaeng – Nakhon Phanom105 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.

7 Day | Mukdahan – Amnat Charoen129 km, lightly rolling

We start the day with a 60 km ride and leave the Mekong River. The terrain is now undulating and our route takes us through forests and plantations.

8 Day | Amnat Charoen – Khong Chiam131 km, flat

Today we re-join the Mekong River. Our resort is surrounded by beautiful scenery and located right on the water with views overlooking Laos. Kong Chiam is located at the confluence of the Mun and Mekong Rivers.

9 Day | Khong Chiam – Ubon Ratchathani83 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.

10 Day | Individual onward journey
