Depart from Bangkok, transfer to the Cambodian border, and then ride to Pailin, set in the attractive Chour Phnom Kravanh foothills.
We ride through rural Cambodia along red dirt roads east to Battambang, a sleepy backwater full of charm and faded colonial buildings.
If water levels permit, today's journey is by boat across the Tonle Sap towards the lost city of Angkor.
We ride to the Angkor Temple complex before starting the Grand Circuit, stopping at each major temple area. At dusk, we return to the temples by car for a sunset view from Phnom Bakheng.
We enter the temple complex by a much quieter gate and then ride into the countryside. We veer from the main tourist road to Banteay Srei, visiting Banteay Samre on the way.
After a transfer to near Kampong Thom and the ancient temple site of Sambor Prey Kuk, we saddle up and ride between the temples. After lunch, we have a beautiful ride through paddy fields and small villages before a transfer to Phnom Penh.
Early morning takes us to Koh Dach, an island in the middle of the Mekong, where villages live in elevated houses and weave silk fabrics.
We start our long ride south into Cambodia's rural heartland. We ride on good roads with all manner of beast and other means of transportation, stopping at Tonle Bati, an Angkor period temple still in good repair.
From Taeko, we ride along country back roads before eventually reach-ing the old French resort town of Kep on the Gulf of Thailand.
Today is a semi rest day with an option to head over to Rabbit Island to see an unspoilt tropical paradise, relaxing before meeting up for a picnic lunch. In the afternoon, it's a short ride to Kampot.
Riding along the coast in the shadow of Bokor mountain, we pass nu-merous fishing villages and ride through beautiful rural rice fields before heading south to the beach at Sihanounkville.
Do as you will – chill out at the beach or take your bike to explore the town and countryside.
We transfer to Kirirom National Park where we have quite a challenging 20-km ride to a waterfall and lunch.
We transfer back to Phnom Penh where the tour concludes. Direct flights are available back to Bangkok.
