Bike and Boat in Asia

Bike & Boat Adventures on Asia’s Rivers

Grasshopper Adventures, the leader in Asia bike tours, launches three unique bike & boat adventures for 2019 and 2020 on the Mekong in Cambodia/Vietnam, the Brahmaputra in India and the River Kwai in Thailand.

Grasshopper Adventures is partnering up with colonial and intimate river vessels on Asia’s great rivers. Cycling off-the-beaten-path, cruising along storied rivers, meeting villagers at the river banks and enjoying some scenic pedalling mixed with culture and delicious local food.

With these new itineraries unpacking is only needed once. The ships are under private charter to Grasshopper Adventures and are escorted by a Grasshopper tour leader.

Single travellers are welcome. Grasshopper Adventures is matching guest with another same sex single traveller or guest can decide to pay the single supplement for a private cabin.

With these new, exciting and unique tours we are able to welcome non-cycling partners or friends and will have special activities planned for them each day while the riders are out on the bikes. It’s like having a portable hotel!
