All About this Tour

This bicycle tour takes you well off Cambodia's beaten path, away from the temples and into the heart of natural wonders such as mangrove forests, secluded beaches, waterfalls, rivers and the rainforest of the Cardamom Mountains. Using boats to go deep into forests we'll explore small villages and even ancient burial sites containing cultural artifacts.

Itinerary

Day 1

From Phnom Penh, we drive to visit the notorious Killing Fields before moving on to Banteay Meas. Here we begin riding on quiet country roads to Kep.

Day 2

Cycling from the hotel, we visit a cave temple and then roll through fishing villages to Kampot. After lunch, the ride takes us to Ream National Park.

Day 3

We start with a short and easy ride through the jungle on ox-cart trails to a pier for a boat trip back to the beach. In the afternoon, we transfer to Chi Phat.

Day 4

Leaving Chi Phat, we ride off-road through rivers and over fallen logs on trails varying from soft and sandy to wet and muddy, and along the way stop at waterfalls to cool off.

Day 5

We ride to Trapeang Rung on a slightly undulating tarmac road, flanked by lush vegetation and lunch en route to Tatai Waterfall. Then we boat along the Kep River to spend the night near the edge of the Cardamom Mountains.

Day 6

You are free to explore the river by kayak, go for a hike, or enjoy a boat trip to the waterfalls.

Day 7

We ride to the town of Koh Kong that shares a border with Thailand and say goodbye to our Cambodian crew. We'll be met by our Thai guides who will take us for some eco-friendly activities in the mangroves. We will then ride a little bit to explore some more before finally reaching our hotel for the night.

Day 8

We start our day by riding to an eco-tourism-based community, known for making special hats made from palm leaves. From there, we ride for about 35 km before we load up the bikes in our transfer and head over a hotel in Chanthaburi.

Day 9

Today we make our final ride as pedal our way to the outskirts of Rayong. We will ride to Hat Mae Phim where we will have a deliciously epic seafood lunch. We will look back on our journey, share stories and say our goodbyes before being transferred to your Bangkok hotel or the airport.

Reviews

Sokhom was an amazing tour guide. He was able to explain Cambodian history and tradition and make us laugh a great deal. He was always receptive to our needs and requests. I would highly recommend requesting Sokhom!

A good balanced mix of cycling on backroads and single track combined with heritage sites and cultural insights, led by a highly competent team of Sokhom (guide) and Mr Kheng and Mr Lee (drivers) in Cambodia, and Woody and Mr Pong in Thailand.

A great opportunity to tour the 'roads less traveled', meet new people, and see and learn about a different part of the world.

Everything was great. Would like to extend a special thank you to Panicha who helped secure my participation in this tour at the last moment - as well as to Mr. Sokhom who was an excellent tour guide in Cambodia. He had a special ability to connect with the riders, was very personable, and was kind and accommodating to the different riders in the group - which was very nice. Already looking forward to the next SpiceRoads ride.
