The smells, the nature, the colonial architecture - a tour for all senses!

After arriving in Da Nang and taking a few days off to acclimatize, we leave the coast of Vietnam on our motorcycles, heading south to the Cambodian border. Here we drive through impressive jungle landscapes and visit the fascinating temple complex of Angkor Wat.

And just two days later we find ourselves in the middle of the vibrant metropolis of Bangkok. On our way south, we come by holiday resorts that most people only reach by plane! We pass majestic limestone formations towering from the jungle, visit deep caves and heavenly, palm-studded beaches. No question - this is bound to be a journey of contrasts.

In Malaysia we experience everything from total tranquility in the villages, with small boutique hotels, roadside food stalls, and green backyards; to the modern life and partly futuristic scenery in Kuala Lumpur. While our motorcycles are on their way by ship across the Malacca Strait to Medan on Sumatra, we personally experience in vibrant Singapore what makes the success and fascination of this city-state, before two days later taking a plane to follow.

Leaving the airport building in Medan we suddenly find ourselves in the middle of another world: the chaotic traffic, honking, and constant new impressions seem rather frightening at first, but all of that is soon forgotten as we start riding our motorcycles into the fantastic nature of Sumatra. The first stopover is the fascinating Lake Toba, located in one of the largest volcanic craters in the world. Of course, we don’t miss the chance to swim in it before we start traversing the length of the island.

Shortly before Bukkittinggi we cross the equator - on a motorcycle! What a great moment! We follow the somewhat less traveled west coast of Sumatra and finally roll onto the ferry to Java in the very south.

Avoiding Jakarta with its horrific traffic jams, we instead turn towards the south coast, experiencing the winding mountain and coastal roads before we reach the cultural heart of Java; Yogyakarta. Via small side roads we reach the crater rim of the volcano Mt. Bromo, almost through the back door. Here the ever-present tropical vegetation gives way to a lunar landscape which we boldly put our wheels on.

A last ferry transfer brings us to Bali, where we learn about culture and traditions influenced by Hinduism. Nasi Goreng, Bami Goreng, Mahi Mahi and the rhythmic Kecak songs accompany us on our journey of discovery of this unique island. We discover impressive temples, picturesque rice terraces, and colorful traditional Barong dances. We savor the exotic volcanic landscape as well as the flavorful cuisine. Rich in new experiences and the knowledge that South East Asia is full of contrasts, we reach Denpasar; the final destination of this totally incredible journey.
