There are other far more interesting ways to travel from Vietnam to Combodia than spending the time in an aircraft thousands of feet from the ground. Biking across the two countries may be the most tiring way to do it. But seeing the natural beauty in the routes you take will make it worth the trip. Vietnam and Cambodia boast of some of the most beautiful places and natural attractions in the world. And here are just some of the best spots to find them.

Angkor (Siem Reap, Cambodia)
Angkor is an iconic archaeological site. The sprawling temple complex is the country’s most popular attraction and covers hundreds of kilometers including a forested area. Home to the Angkor Wat and other famous temples, the place is not only a wondrous work of ancient architecture. It also showcases the awe-inspiring beauty of its natural surroundings.

Halong Bay (Vietnam)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is one of Vietnam’s must-see natural attractions. The thousands of towering limestone pillars are among its most striking features.

Mondulkiri (Cambodia)
sparsely populated Mondulkiri is a nature lover’s haven. It is brimming with wildlife and packed with natural attractions like dense forests, diverse wildlife, and dramatic landscapes to name a few. Not to mention the traditional villages where the province’s small number of inhabitants live.

Phong Nha-Kẻ Bàng National Park (Quang Binh Province, Vietnam)
This national park is a UNESCO World Heritage site and home to the world’s biggest caves that are accessible to the public. Here visitors can explore its vast limestone zone that stretches to about two thousand square kilometers and a spectacular grotto as well as the system of caves the park is known for.
