About the ride

Starting in the city of Nong Khai in Thailand’s north-east, you’ll spend three days following the incredibly bio-diverse Mekong River before heading west through villages and rural communities not often visited by foreigners. Following a well-deserved rest day in the middle, you’ll ride into our Home Hug in Yasothon on the fifth day to be greeted excitedly by the children you have worked so hard to support.
