Cycling Cambodia's Pepper Route
Cambodia is known for its impressive ruins of Angkor, yet that's not all Cambodia has to offer. Peaceful beaches, dense jungles in the mountains and an unpretentious rural way of life, guarantee an exotic Southeast Asian experience.
On this trip we will cycle away from the hustle bustle of Phnom Penh, to find peace and harmony in the south of Cambodia. Cycle through small countryside villages, visit ancient Khmer temples along the way before arriving at Cambodian's coastal city of Kep. This town was once was a famous holiday spot for French colonialists. We continue on to explore the laid-back atmosphere of riverside Kampot and discover why black pepper from the region was a prized specialty crop in French restaurants during the 19th Century as we taste and smell its unique flavour.

Mr Sokhom and Mr Tach were incredibly sensitive and attentive to our comfort and enjoyment at every moment on the trip. The trip without them would have been great but because of their care and service the trip was very excellent and made it a truly memorable experience. We highly recommend them as guide and driver.

We thoroughly enjoyed this cycling experience. Our guide and driver were professional, patient, attentive, knowledgeable, and a lot of fun to tour with. We truly enjoyed their company.
The itinerary was fantastic! We appreciated the variety of areas we toured -- both the areas along the national highway and those farther removed. We highly recommend this tour for anyone who wants to see everyday life in rural Cambodia.
