The Charming Backroads
This tour mostly rides on a narrow country lane and dirt road to discover the Siem Reap countryside. We also stop often for photo opportunities and enjoy with a light refreshment.
Spend half a day exploring the rural countryside around Siem Reap with this bicycle tour. Hop on a bike with our local guides and head outside the city center to see the authentic local life while freshening up on the local culture and living experience of Cambodians.
Local snacks, culture, scenery, and local industries—we cover it all! This is the most popular half-day tour for anyone visiting Siem Reap, done right: Off the beaten path, personalized, local adventure with a local guide.
You will first be fitted with a bike at the Siem Reaper shop and then given the tour details by your guide. This will also include going over the safety rules. After being fitted with a bicycle and helmet, your English-speaking guide will lead you through backroads, across rice fields and farms, and into small local villages where you’ll learn about how locals live, first-hand.
You will stop at multiple scenic places, including rice fields, the local market, mushroom farms, rice wine distillation, Buddhist temples, lotus farms, and village handicrafts. During this ride, we will stop and welcome you to try local fruits and snacks.
We’ll arrive back at our office. Don’t forget to give our guides a hug and keep in touch. It’ll likely be an experience to remember and make a new friend.
Great insight to the coutryside of Siem Reap. Our guide was very knowledgable and passionate about the locals’ lifestyle. The tour itself is not too hard even though the road is a bit bumpy and should be doable by most people. I’d definetely recommend it!
Loved this tour. Seeing the countryside on bike is great, the locals are so happy to see you, smiling and waving. We had plenty of stops to see the locals go about their daily lives and the weather was perfect, great for a cloudy day activity. You see and learn a lot on this tour. Local market, rice wine, mushroom farm and a lotus farm. Highly recommend this tour to get away from the city noise.
I did this tour just this morning, and loved every minute. A great guide in “George” helped by Ronnie. Decent bikes, a good flat, but sometimes bumpy route. And a good look into the real Cambodia, and not just the inside of a four or five star hotel and all that luxury. The market was quite an experience. Not many tourists see that way of life. A couple of well deserved drink stops along the way helped with the building morning heat. Fully recommended to anyone wanting to experience real Cambodia.
My wife and I did the Countryside tour with Ben and Ven. We got to see some “off the beaten path” arras and stuff that we never would have seen without going on the tour, such as lunches at home stays, Cambodian donuts on top of Kulén Mountain and snacks at a local market.
Both Ben and Ven helped make this one of the most amazing experiences I have had. It was amazing to get to know both of them and learn all about the Cambodian culture.
I would highly recommend this tour to anyone!
This was a very unique experience. Borith and his guides are well experienced and take pride in what they do. I ended up doing two activities with them and both of them were special in their own way. Highly recommend!
