Itinerary

Day 1

Depart from Bangkok, transfer to the Cambodian border, and then ride to Pailin, set in the attractive Chour Phnom Kravanh foothills.

Day 2

We ride through rural Cambodia along red dirt roads east to Battambang, a sleepy backwater full of charm and faded colonial buildings.

Day 3

If water levels permit, today's journey is by boat across the Tonle Sap towards the lost city of Angkor.

Day 4

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.

Day 5

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.

Day 6

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.

Day 7

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.

Day 8

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.

Day 9

From Taeko, we ride along country back roads before eventually reach-ing the old French resort town of Kep on the Gulf of Thailand.

Day 10

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.

Day 11

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.

Day 12

Do as you will – chill out at the beach or take your bike to explore the town and countryside.

Day 13

We transfer to Kirirom National Park where we have quite a challenging 20-km ride to a waterfall and lunch.

Day 14

We transfer back to Phnom Penh where the tour concludes. Direct flights are available back to Bangkok.

Reviews

A great way to see beautiful Cambodia and the country's amazing sights. Our guide Nak and driver Nan were the best. Their knowledge, helpfulness and good humour made the trip extra special. The food was excellent and plentiful.

Karen EsplenJanuary 2017

The only way to see Cambodia, Spice Roads staff are the best and most helpful. Excellent knowledge.

Andrew DaviesAugust 2016

We enjoyed a great variety of local foods, some upmarket, and some quite basic.

The standard of roads travelled were as expected, some great, some potholed, muddy and rough. It was a great mix. Plenty of attention was paid to having enough water/food/regroup stops. We tended to stop around every 20k or one hour or so, which was just right.

Big tick for - Chamrong's enthusiasm and bike knowledge, quality of accommodation, mix of cycling and sightseeing, riding on country backroads, having cold drinks and food at hand, great food.
