Day 2 Angkor Complex

Pick up from hotel or meet up at our bike depot for bike fitting and safety briefing. We then ride to the Angkor Temple complex. We will enter from the south and traverse up portions of tarmac road and jungle paths until we reach our first temple of today, Tah Prohm. After our visit here we’ll carry on through the jungle and toward the eastern gate of Angkor Thom, ancient capital of the Khmer Empire. In the near center of this massive enclosure, we’ll find the enigmatic temple of Bayon. This temple is known for its many smiling faces. As the sun reaches its zenith now, we’ll take a short rest and lunch, before visiting the grandest temple of them all Angkor Wat. Depending upon the time, we can choose to return to Siem Reap after our visit to Angkor Wat for a brief rest before returning to the Angkor complex. This evening, we’ll enjoy a beautiful sunset in the Angkor Park and return to our hotel by transfer.

Day 3 Prah Dak - Kbal Spean - Banteay Srei

Leaving Siem Reap by bike we strike out for the countryside. Our initial destination this morning is the village of Prah Dak, which lies not far from the temple complex. Once we pass through this quaint little village, we’ll cycle down a narrow tarmac lane to Banteay Samre. Now we start getting deeper into the Cambodian countryside and pass many local villages and schools and people going about their day to day business. Ahead of us, the great sandstone ridge of Phnom Kulen rises up from the countryside. At the base of this mountain, we will stop for lunch and take a short 3km trek to Kbal Spean. Here we can see ancient riverbed carvings of Hindu gods in the “River of 1,000 Lingas”. Once we finish here, we’ll load up our bikes and transfer to Banteay Srei the gem of the Angkor area known for its exquisite bas relief carvings. Afterward, transfer to your back to Siem Reap.

Day 4 Kampong Phluk Floating Village - Roulous Group - Siem Reap

After breakfast, we leave the crowds behind and head towards the floating village and submerged forest of Kampong Phluk. The floating forest makes this tranquil place unique and is a treat for visitors. We enjoy a boat tour around the village, between trees breaking through the water surface and soak in the culture of living life on the water. We’ll eat lunch at a local house before we get back on solid ground. As the day becomes warmer, we’ll transfer to the village of Roulous, home to some of the earliest permanent structures built by the Khmers. We explore the three main temples here – Lolei, Preah Ko, and Bakong. Afterward, we’ll transfer back to Siem Reap. ** Due to low water levels during the dry season, the boat trip at Kampong Phluck is only possible from June to March. However, an alternative floating village at Kampong Kleang can be arranged instead.
