All About this Tour

On this tour we explore the history and culture of Cambodia by bicycle, starting as far back as the 7th Century. Our ride starts in Phnom Penh, the capital city of Cambodia since the French colonisation of Indochina, once known as the "Pearl of Asia." We ride through the scenery of Cambodia's countryside to Oudong, the former capital of Cambodia from 1618 to 1866. Then to the hills of Phnom Oudong to see a variety of chedis and stupas built in traditional Khmer style.

Itinerary

Day 1

We meet in the morning for a bicycle tour to enjoy the colonial charm of Cambodia's capital city. We begin along the colourful riverfront to the Royal Palace and continue to the National Museum.

Day 2

We head to Oudong, once capital of Cambodia, observing rural Cambodia life, with a picnic lunch at a local Khmer house. Then we explore the recent dark history of Cambodia in Tuol Sleng Museum of Genocide.

Day 3

We transfer to Kampong Thom where we cycle through the ancient Sambor Prey Kuk. Visit one of the oldest temple sites in Cambodia constructed in the 7th century and have a beautiful ride through rice paddy fields and small villages while locals greet us as we cycle by.

Day 4

We immerse ourselves in the 12th century, when the Khmer’s reign extended far and wide. We cycle to Ta Prohm, famous from the film Tomb Raider, and deliberately left by French conservationists in the same condition as discovered.

Day 5

We cycle through rural countryside to Banteay Srei Temple, with the best-preserved bas-reliefs and stone carvings in Cambodia. After lunch, we trek 3 km uphill through the jungle to a river bed with submersed carvings and a beautiful waterfall.

Day 6

We rise early for sunrise over Angkor Wat and then start riding to the Rolous. The afternoon is free to explore the old market or to just rest by the hotel pool. We meet again late afternoon for a sunset cruise and to see a floating village.

Day 7

We have a short cycle through bucolic Siem Reap countryside to the Silk Farm of Phouk, a fascinating farm/workshop where you can see the entire silk creation process. We return to the hotel by vehicle and say our final good byes after lunch.

Reviews

We had an amazing experience. It was a such a person and unique way to get to see Cambodia. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and all the arrangements were ready in advance for us and made the whole trip easy and stress free! We enjoyed the tour and intend to consider this as a future way to see other parts of South East Asia.

This is the ONLY way to see Cambodia. Getting off the beaten path provides a true picture of the country and its people. Sok Heng and our driver, Nang, were beyond helpful and provided us more than everything we could have possibly needed even before we realized we needed it. They were better than I ever expected.
