About this Cycle Tour

On this bike tour we explore the history and culture of Cambodia by bicycle, starting as far back as the 7th Century. Our cycling adventure 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, exploring villages and getting a feel for local life away from the sights and sounds of the city. Then on 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

Our guide was incredible. Knowledgeable, fun and caring. He made our trip truly memorable.

If you want to get off the beaten track and really see Cambodia, then this is the best way to see it! By mountain bike. We travelled for 7 days with the best tour guide Sok Heng from Spiceroads tours on their Heritage of Cambodia tour and saw the best of Cambodia, starting in Phenom Phen and finishing in Siem Reap. Spiceroads will help you see the best of everything while soaking in the sights of every day Cambodian life that the average tourist wouldn’t get to see. We will be back SpiceRoads...thank you Heng for hosting us!

We have had an amazing trip. Our tour guide Sok Heng was very very good. He was always on time, helpful, informative and made us feel at home. Our driver was also excellent and always made sure we had enough water. Thank you for an amazing trip, we will book SpiceRoads again and recommend.
