ITINERARY

8:00 AM PICK UP FROM YOUR HOTEL

Upon you arrive at our office, you will meet our English speaking guide, then your guide will detail the tour and the used of bicycle.

9:00 AM – 11:00 AM 

Start the morning temple exploration at the most illustrious temple with fewer crowds. 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.

11:30 AM – 1:00 PM 

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 centre 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.

1:30 PM – 4:00 PM 

We will take a break at lunch and stop at the local restaurant to enjoy tasteful Cambodian dishes. Lastly, we will bike to the gem of the Angkor complex, Angkor Wat. Following your storytelling guide, you will be learned about rich history and symbolism of this unique ancient temple. Afterwards, you will return to your hotel.

Note: Cambodia is a conservative country, especially when you visit the main temple, Angkor Wat, we would like all of the participants to wear clothing that covers shoulder and knees, due to the cultural respected.

We had a great tour lead by Lao, our tour guide. He guided us effortlessly out of town to the temples. Really really informative. What better way to see the temples than with a local company. The more you learn about Cambodia the more you realise how important it is to support the locals.

I did a bike tour, doing the little circuit of Angkor. It ended up being just me and the guide and it was excellent. we did the opposite route, avoiding, when possible, the mass of tourists. by bicycle you can reach the temples, by different paths and paths through the middle of the forest, quite shady, pulled but very tasty

Siem Reap Temples Tour

We are a family of 5 (youngest 15) and of varying fitness levels. We were picked up at our hotel by tuk tuk and taken to the Siem Reapers HQ (garage) which was relatively central.
They kitted us out with bikes and helmets. The bikes weren’t new, but they were all fully functional. All had been fitted for our sizes so there was no wasted time.
First stop was the temples ticket office and then off to Angkor Wat. Our guide, Rith, was friendly and informative. He was very patient with the slower members of our group. The ride to and from the temples is the longest cycling section and the least interesting. I agree with a previous comment that it might be a good idea to consider a tour starting from closer to the temples.
Once we got to the temples the magic begins. All the temples are incredible and we somehow felt we had earned the privilege of seeing them through our efforts on the bike. The bike routes took us off road that allowed us to see some local settlements and farms. Many of the locals were waving and cheerfully calling greetings.
We also visited Bayon, the tomb raider temple and the “lonely temple”. The latter being further into the jungle and away from the larger tour parties.
Our lunch stop was at a large temporary restaurant near the temples, I didn’t have high hopes for the food but I was pleasantly surprised. The food was tasty and plentiful.
At the end of the tour, a couple of our group didn’t fancy the ride back so Rith kindly organised a tuk tuk to bring them back.
Overall a memorable day, Thank you Siem Reapers!
