This tour is designed for anyone who is looking for the adventure ride whilst touring with the local insider. You will have time for cultural exploration and personal discovery throughout your trip.
Through this cycling adventure, you will cycle on the charming backroads and jungle trails to discover the beautiful scenery of Cambodia and immerse yourself in the local Cambodian culture. Uncover the stories of the famous Angkor temples, learn about the ancient capital of the Khmer Kingdom and heading down to the Great Lake (Tonle Sap) where you can experience the real activities of Cambodian people who live in the floating villages.
Welcome to Siem Reap! Upon arrival at the airport in the morning, you will meet our driver and the English speaking tour guide, who will be waiting to transfer you to your hotel to check in. You will have time to rest before starting your cycling at 2 pm.
In the afternoon, we will take you down interesting dirt roads to escape town and to experience local livelihoods. There are multiple scenic places where the tour will stop, including rice fields, rice mill, local market, mushroom farm, and more. During this ride, we will stop and welcome you to try local fruits and snacks at the local village.
We will return back to town and take a break from touring and enjoy the creative local cuisine at Marum Restaurant (Marun is NGO that has been working with street children and other marginalized young people).
After having dinner, we will head to Phar Circus, where their shows tell stories of Cambodian history through a mix of music, dance and acrobats, in addition to meeting the talented performers.
After breakfast at the hotel, you start biking the morning temple exploration at the most illustrious temple with fewer crowds. First, you will visit Ta Prohm which is unique in that it has been left largely as it was found- overgrown by jungle trees and vines, with many parts of the temple crumbling to the ground. This makes the so-called Tomb Raider Temple, as it was used during the filming of the movie, one of the most picturesque and memorable temples of the Angkor complex.
You will then head out to the ancient city of Angkor Thom, enter the city through the ancient Gate, an impressive stone gate carved with elephants and four giant faces. From here, continue to Bayon Temple, found in the center of the city famed as the enigmatic faces representing the 54 provinces of the Great Khmer Empire. The Terrace of the Elephants and the Terrace of the Leper King are also must-visits as they are both known for their intricate bas-reliefs.
You will take a break at lunch and stop at the local restaurant to enjoy tasteful Cambodian dishes.
Lastly, you will bike to the gem of the Angkor complex, Angkor Wat. Following your tour leader, you will be mesmerized by the rich history and symbolism of this unique ancient temple. Afterwards, you will return to your hotel.

If you are thinking of booking a tour with Siem Reaper then all I can say is YES go ahead! From booking to arrival, my bike being set up and being driven back to the airport everything has gone smoothly. The hotel was lovely too. A huge thank you to Ben my guide who was enthusiastic, full of information, easy to talk to and a great sense of humour. Must mention Rotha the tuk-tuk driver who is incredibly friendly and our driver on the long day, How, a gentlman. If you enjoy cycling and want the peace of the Cambodian countryside the 5 day tour is varied and interesting
Awesome experience! My guides and drivers especially Sokvut, was outstanding. They were flexible to what I wanted and enjoyed. They were not just my tour guides but they made me feel like a friend, I didn’t feel alone though I traveled solo. The hotel accommodation was beyond my expectations. Excellent service. The staff were very polite and helpful. The Siem Reaper made my Cambodia adventure a wonderful and unforgettable one. Simply outstanding tour operator.
This was our fantastic cycling adventure in Siem Reap … We are extremely tough critics and compared to any other tour We’ve taken or trip we’ve planned ourself, The 5day trip their team put us together for a private tour that was amazing. We LOVE traveling and experiencing the culture and community everywhere we went. This was truly authentic. We were cycling through several villages & streets and the Temples. However, it seems everyone offers tours… it was our TOUR GUIDES that made the trip was perfect. The guides were knowledgable, well-spoken English, professional and extremely fun to be with! We would participate in ANY tour these guides were a part of because it was exciting, fruitful and felt like home. Thank you for making our trip special in Siem Reap.

He was so professional cyclist, he also so much care about us to make sure our cycling with balance and safety. We definitely recommend them highly, thank you for the best times of our life.
The terrain is varied, mainly flat and follows by the mixture of tarmac roads and dirt roads passing the countryside & Angkor complex. We cycle on backroads with lovely open landscapes and leisurely with plenty of stops to rest or take photos. Our Siem Reaper guides can also easily accommodate type riders, who seek less ride with a boost in the van.
We strongly recommend that you ride a mountain bike for our trips involved in asphalt, dirt, and backroads that some are sandy and rocky. If you are much more comfortable with your own stuff, we highly suggest bringing such as pedal, saddle, helmets, and water bottles. Our mechanic will adjust to your bikes and personal stuff.
The tools and spares are carried by your tour guide in the vehicle along with a full toolkit for the tour. However, it is also gauche for us to carry spares for every eventuality, therefore, it is necessary that when before departing, you should have a quick look at your two-wheel fellow whether it is in good order.
We recommend you to wear a helmet all our biking adventures and is non-negotiable. If you do not wear a helmet you will not be allowed to cycle. Your tour guide is trained in first aid and emergency rescue, but to a large degree, you must be responsible for your own safety while riding.
The country has two distinct weather seasons but we can travel all year round in Cambodia. Our wet season runs from May to September and the dry season from October until April and the heaviest rainfall usually in August & September. The cooler is 24°C around November/December and hottest hitting 35°C around April/May.
Keeping you completely hydrated is a job we take very seriously. Cold water, some energy-restoring local fruit, and soft drinks are included in the tour price while riding. Soft drinks and other beverages during meals are not included. Beer is freely available everywhere but is NOT included in the price.
The currency of Cambodia is called ‘Riel’, and there are however no needs to change the currency into riel as US dollars are accepted everywhere. Please kindly note that ripped, torn, or old bills will not be accepted. ATM machines are available in the main cities across the country and mostly in Siem Reap and Phnom Penh. Banks are open Monday to Friday from 08:00 AM to 3:00 PM and Saturday morning until 12:00 PM. Most hotels and restaurants in the major cities will charge US dollars, but for other currencies, it is advisable to visit a bank. Traveller’s checks can be exchanged at banks and some hotels, but it is not usable outside of the major cities. We would highly recommend using Visa Card or Master Card, as they are now accepted in many hotels, restaurants, and shops in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. As if you wish to travel in a local taxi (Tuk-Tuk), make sure to have the right amount of cash and change with you as the drivers are unlikely to keep a lot of cash with them.
The visitors to Cambodia require a passport to enter the country and all travelers must hold a passport with the validation for 6 months after their planned exit from Cambodia.
Citizens of the UK, EU countries, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the United States and almost all other nationalities will require a visa to visit Cambodia. Non-UK residents should check with the Cambodian Embassy in their country of residence for the most up-to-date information. Most nationalities can get a visa on arrival at Phnom Penh & Siem Reap international airports without prior registration. Visa issued on arrival for most nationalities, US $30/pax, and the visa has a one-month validity. You need to pay in cash and in US Dollars and provide two recent, identical passport photographs.
Travel insurance is not covered in the tour price. You can organize travel insurance with your preferred insurance company. As medical facilities in Cambodia are rather limited, so it is imperative for you to take out a good medical insurance policy when travelling.
