DAY TO DAY

Day 1: Arrive in Siem Reap & Welcome Dinner

Upon arrival, please look out for the Siem Reaper welcome sign at the arrivals gate. We will transfer you to your hotel, where you can take your time and relax by the pool or venture out for your first exploration of this ancient city.

In the early evening, your guide will meet you at the hotel reception where a trip briefing will be held. Then, you will enjoy the creative local cuisine at Spoons Restaurant (Spoons is a social enterprise, they have had a great role in providing vocational training and education to unskilled youths from rural areas and poor family backgrounds, and have had a very positive impact on Cambodia community for over 10 years.).

Meals: Dinner
Hotel: Central Corner d'Angkor

Day 2: Cycle the Angkor Temples

After breakfast at the hotel, you start biking for the morning temple exploration at the most illustrious temple with the smallest 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 in the Angkor complex.

You will then head out to the ancient city of Angkor Thom and enter the city through the ancient Gate, an impressive stone gate carved with elephants and four giant faces. From here, continue to Bayon Temple, located in the center of the city and 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. Afterward, you will return to your hotel.

Essential Information

Read important information about your destination(s), including weather,
terrains, bike repairs, and tipping guidelines.

Terrains

The terrain is varied, mainly flat, and characterized by a mixture of tarmac roads and single dirt lanes passing through the countryside and Angkor complex. We cycle on backroads with lovely open landscapes, leisurely with plenty of stops to rest or take photos. Our Siem Reaper guides can also easily accommodate type riders who seek a shorter ride with a boost in the van.

Bike & Personal Equipment

We strongly recommend that you ride a mountain bike for our trips that involve asphalt, dirt, and backroads, some of which are sandy and rocky. If you are much more comfortable with your own stuff, we highly suggest bringing items such as pedals, saddles, helmets, and water bottles. Our mechanic will make adjustments to your bikes and personal belongings.

Bike Repairs

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 before departing, you have a quick look at your two-wheeler to see whether it is in good order.

Safety

We recommend you wear a helmet on all our biking adventures. This 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.

Travel Insurance

Travel insurance is not covered in the tour price. You can arrange travel insurance with your preferred insurance company. As medical facilities in Cambodia are rather limited, it is imperative for you to take out a good medical insurance policy when traveling.

Visa & Passport

Visitors to Cambodia require a passport to enter the country, and all travelers must hold a passport with validity 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 and Siem Reap international airports without prior registration. A visa is issued on arrival for most nationalities for 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 in the time of COVID-19

For travelers who are planning their vacation as well as for trips that have already been booked, there are many questions about “Traveling in Times of COVID-19”.

As a traveler, you are responsible for complying with the travel regulations prescribed by airlines, airports, and destination countries. These include requirements for visas, vaccinations, COVID-19 passports, COVID-19 tests, and other entry documents. These requirements may change between the booking of the trip and the departure date. Therefore, it is important that you keep up to date with any changes in entry requirements until the date of departure.

If you have any further questions or need information about traveling to Cambodia, please contact us; we look forward to hearing from you!

Cambodia Weather

Cambodia is located in the tropical climate zone, in which neither the temperatures nor the hours of sunshine show great variations over the course of the year. Due to the tropical monsoons in Cambodia, a distinction is made between a dry season and a rainy season, and each of these seasons has its own charm.

The dry season runs from October to April and is the time to visit the coastal towns of Cambodia or the tropical islands. Temperatures are warm and comfortable during this time of year, and there are long periods of sunshine. Although it is relatively dry during this time, individual showers can occur.

The rainy season runs from May to September and is ideally suited to experiencing Cambodia’s nature in a, particularly green and lush way. The warm temperatures remain unchanged, while the rain ensures high humidity. There is a lot of rainfall, especially in the last months of the rainy season. For the entire time, however, the rain falls in short downpours.

While Cambodia can be visited year-round, it is important to note that small country roads that may pass through the more remote areas, e.g., the province of Mondulkiri, are impassable during the last two months of the rainy season.

Best time to visit Cambodia

Any time of year is a good time to visit Cambodia, with each season offering its own range of benefits. Throughout the year, the climate in Cambodia is hot and humid. The temperature remains in the 30°C range for the majority of the year, dropping to 20°C at night.

Cambodia Eat & Drink

The local dishes are among the healthiest in the world. It smells and tastes good and is reminiscent of Thai cuisine, but without the strong seasoning. Because of the shared history, there is also a great closeness to Vietnamese cuisine.

The best-known local dish is “Amok“, a fish curry with coconut cream, whereby the fish can also be replaced by chicken.

Only drink bottled mineral water that is cheap to buy anywhere. Do not drink tap water!

Money & ATM

The currency of Cambodia is called “Riel”, and there is, however, no need 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, mostly in Siem Reap and Phnom Penh. Banks are open Monday to Friday from 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM and on 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. Traveler’s checks can be exchanged at banks and some hotels, but they are not usable outside of major cities.

We would highly recommend using a Visa or Master Card, as they are now accepted in many hotels, restaurants, and shops in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. If you wish to travel in a local taxi or 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.

Allow $20 per day for basic living expenses (drinks, meals, etc). A bottle of local beer will set you back roughly $1, a two-course lunch will set you back $7, and a two-course dinner would set you back $10.

Culture & Customs

It is interesting to get to know foreign customs and traditions, but respect is required. Below, we’ll give you a few tips on how you can move around the country without causing offense.

  • Don’t show any anger! Venturing out anger by speaking loudly or in a rude manner is perceived as extremely impolite. According to the Cambodian view, anyone who is yelled at loses face.
  • Public expressions of love (kissing, holding hands, etc.) are perceived as offensive. You rarely see couples holding hands here, whereas you see it often with friends.
  • When entering a house, you usually have to take off your shoes. When in doubt, follow the example of others.
  • Locals bow slightly to greet them, bend their arms and hold the palms of their hands together, with the younger ones’ first greeting. With foreigners (especially in business life), a handshake is accepted.
  • Do not touch children by the head, as this is said to bring bad luck. This is not a problem for the arms and shoulders.
  • Use both hands or just your right hand, never just your left hand, to hand over or receive things.
  • Inappropriate clothing (shorts, short skirts, tank tops, skimpy tops, etc.) should be avoided in sacred places and in the countryside.
  • When entering a monastery, the headgear may have to be removed and the shoes are taken off.
  • Do not point your finger at people or Buddha images.
  • If you sit in front of a Buddha altar (Dai), you must not point to it with your feet.
  • A female person is allowed to give something to a monk but never to touch him.

Please note: the central tower of the Angkor Wat complex is closed to tourists on Buddhist holidays.

Telephone & Internet

The international code is +855. Since making calls with a cell phone can be expensive (incoming and outgoing calls), the costs should be clarified in advance. It may be worth buying a SIM card (prepaid) in the country. Wi-Fi is available in most hotels, and there are internet cafes in larger cities.

Healthcare

We recommend carrying a modest supply of basic health care medications such as travel sickness tablets, anti-diarrhea tablets, antacids for indigestion, insect repellant, sun creams, and chosen antibiotics. Although the majority of these things are available in Cambodia, the security afforded by well-known names is comforting.

DATES & PRICES

Our family tours are designed to be fun and flexible. Once you book, your price and date are guaranteed.

We had an awesome bike tour around Angkor Wat temples with Lot as our guide. Our bikes were extremely comfortable, the views were breathtaking, and the ride was amazing! I really appreciated the opportunity to see the cultural and historical aspects of Cambodian life that were brought up on this visit. It will be a great way to start our family holiday in Cambodia. Thanks for a great tour!!!

Great routes, professional tour guides, delicious and plentiful food, wonderful lodging, and bikes able to handle the terrain. Our family cycling tour with Siem Reaper was fantastic, as were our 5-day bike tours of the Angkor temples. Highly recommended!!!

Our family of two adults and two children, ages 12 and 14, had a fantastic five-day Angkor bike tour. Our guide (Lot) was very professional and friendly with excellent English speaking skills. He showed us around, explained the sights, and gave us insights into life in his country. Everything was carefully planned, including lodging, meals, bikes, transit, and local excursions. Cycling is undoubtedly the best way to experience the beautiful Angkor temples and countryside, with scenic and traffic-free routes. With regular breaks, the distances were quite feasible. It was excellent value for money and the memories will last forever.

This is our first family trip to Cambodia. There were just four of us, through the Temples of Angkor Wat, departing by bike from Siem Reap through the off-beaten trails with Mr. Sokvuth (our guide). We highly recommend doing this tour with him and Mr. Sokvuth was not only a knowledgeable guide but had a great friendly personality that relaxed my whole group of 4. This is an incredible cycling experience to visit with a company that is worth the money.
