Well, there are many more thrilling journeys you haven’t even thought about.
While a bike tour from India to Singapore through four other countries may sound strange, it will be full of fun and adventure. No matter in which part of the country you live, you can always set off on a bike tour. If you start from somewhere in North India, you will have to go via Delhi. You will have to reach Siliguri, via Basti – Darbhanga – West Bengal.
