DAY TO DAY

Day 1: Cycle the Siem Reap Backroads

Welcome to Siem Reap! Upon arrival at the airport, 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 mills, local markets, mushroom farms, and more. During this ride, we will stop and welcome you to try local fruits and snacks at the local village.

Day 2: Pedal the Angkor Archaeology park

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.

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, please bring 1 passport photo. You also can get a visa in advance at
www.evisa.gov.kh

MEET YOUR GUIDE & DRIVER

You will be met by your tour guide and driver at your arrival point. They will be holding a Siem Reaper name board with your name on it. It is possible you will be a little bleary-eyed after a long flight and there are also likely to be a large number of meeting boards being displayed, so please take your time to locate them.

CAMBODIA WEATHER

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.

DRINK

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.

MONEY

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.

EXTRA EXPENSE

We recommend that you tuck away a few extra dollars, perhaps US$30, for incidentals.

TERRAINS

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.

FITNESS LEVELS

This tour is tailor-made to suit cyclists of all levels of experience, fitness, and all ages with different backgrounds. Siem Reaper requires all of the cyclists to enjoy the challenges but should respect everyone’s limits of cycling. The tours are designed so everyone can go at their own pace, and bear in mind that this is not a race.

BIKE & PERSONAL EQUIPMENT

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.

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 when before departing, you should have a quick look at your two-wheel fellow whether it is in good order.

SAFETY

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.

TRAVEL INSURANCE

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.

SOLO TRAVELER

We do not require you to pay a surcharge for traveling alone. We will arrange for you to share accommodation with another traveler of the same gender and if we can not match you up we will provide a single room at no extra charge.

Fantastic trip from Angkor to Phnom Penh

Really enjoyed the trip overall. The itinerary was well put together with a good mix of historical sites and cultural experiences. The cycling was great mainly flat with some quite long days the longest being 70 km but the roads are mainly flat with good surfaces and with the excellent bikes the cycling was no problem. We ride through town, villages, temples, forest, past the river and monastery. The tour guide was excellent in providing opportunities to see local culture and provide insights into local history and politics. The hotels we stay were so nice and really central to explore Siem Reap & Phnom Penh in the evening. The meals during the tour were fantastic showing off the best of Cambodian cuisine. Definitely recommend this trip!
