About This Tour

This Bike Cambodia trip is priced to depart daily with just two people but we can also price for one person

Let your every sense experience the wonders of Angkor as you cycle this ancient land, exploring Khmer temples and meeting the local people.

Most visitors to Angkor Wat, the famous ancient Cambodian city of temples, are surprised by its vastness and simply don't have time to take in all there is to see. You, on the other hand, will have the time, the priceless local knowledge and the wheels to make sure you experience this marvel in the best possible way.

On this Bike Cambodia trip we've planned the peddling to make sure you see each of the main temples at the right time of day, where the sunlight is at its most magical and the crowds are at their smallest. Then we'll ride off the beaten track to some hidden gems that will, quite literally, take your breath away.

You'll have the chance to explore the legendary temples and the wonderful forest surroundings at your own pace, plus you'll come face to face with the extraordinarily enchanting local village life that is the modern Cambodia. We pedal into the countryside to find Banteay Srei ("The Temple of Women"). Constructed of pink sandstone, its femininity reflects its history as a 9th century convent. We visit Kbal Spean to examine religious images carved into the river bed by ancient hermits, and the ruins of the remote Beng Melea, now home to monkeys. And, of course, we explore the famous Angkor Wat, its classical 12th century Khmer architecture remarkably well preserved. Our guides explain the temples amazing structures, steeped in Hindu and Buddhist mythology.

Every day's riding on this Bike Cambodia trip is accompanied by a guide and an air conditioned vehicle, so you'll never get lost and you'll have the option to stop riding at any time. We've chosen a really great hotel with an unbeatable location to make sure your time off the bike is as fulfilling as your time in the saddle. Best of all we guarantee quality, well maintained bikes, or your money back.

Testimonials

Florence Lim
- Sydney
"The guides were so passionate about their countries it made everybody interested in what they had to say, and we were very eager to learn more. Their knowledge on their country and its history is astounding! Kun took some of us for a tour around Angkor Wat, and some of my fellow travellers and I were commenting about how bored other tourists looked with their guides!"
Tricia Lorenzo
"Being out of the confines of an air conditioned vehicle allowed me to experience Cambodia in such a unique and in depth way, i am starting to feel like there is no other way to see south east asia except by bike! Perfect trip."
