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.

Our Guide - Srey Pannha was absolutely superb, taking very good care of the whole family through the entire tour and adjusting the plan as required to take account of tired legs (young and old!!).
We really loved it and have already been recommending the tour to many of our friends.
