Cambodia (110km through Kirirom National Park)
While many go to Cambodia solely for Angkor Wat, you can pedal away off the beaten path in Kirirom National Park, which is a two-hour drive from the capital Phnom Penh. Burrow through the dense pine forest for some #nofilterneeded shots of cascading waterfalls and the Cardamom Mountains’ hazy outline in the distance. For a dose of local culture, spend the night in Chambok, a collection of farming villages on the border of the park that support community-based ecotourism. Electricity may be limited at the homestay, but the warmth of the Khmer families (and their fabulous food) will light up your night. Visit in December for cooler temps.
