If you have an afternoon to spare and are looking for something to do other than the temples why not join Siem Reapers Sunset Ride. On this tour, you will have a great ride out of the hustle and bustle of Siem Reap’s downtown to the wonderful views of Siem Reap’s countryside through paddy fields and stunning scenery as well as watch the sunset surrounded by palm trees and wildlife.
Exploring the evening life on this bike tour will give you a unique experience to enjoy the friendly environment on two wheels. This bike ride will take you through the narrow dirt lanes where you’ll see the everyday life of Siem Reapers and get insightful information from our knowledgeable local tour leaders.
At the end of the tour, you will be served delicious snacks with cold beverage whilst you watch the sunset over the wide, flat, expanse of rice paddies.
You will be picked up from your hotel on the complimentary tuk-tuk at 3:30 pm. Once you arrive at our shop, your guide will set you up on the mountain bike. After a brief introduction about the tour, you will take a quick ride through the somewhat busy streets of Siem Reap to get off the beaten track and ride through the beautiful villages which many visitors often miss.

My friend and I had the best time on our bike tour with our guide Bo, who spoke impeccable English and was extremely knowledgeable about the local culture, politics, and anything else we had question about regarding Cambodia. The tour felt extremely authentic, unlike most other things in Siem Reap unfortunately. We biked through the beautiful countryside on really nice bikes, visited several local families where Bo showed us the various ways rural families around SR made their living (including a really awesome mushroom farm!), and ended the tour with grilled snails and beers at a local bar/hut. Bo did everything to make us feel comfortable and welcome, even biked through a thunderstorm to get us raincoats! The company's values of sustainability and local support is admirable; we could immediately see how our money was going to support the various families that we visited along the way. Highly highly recommend if you have half a day free in SR, best thing to do beyond the temples!
A friend and I took the sunset tour with Bo and the Siem Reaper and couldn't have been happier with our decision! Bo is super friendly, energetic, and informative about Cambodian local life. We learned a ton from him about Cambodia and thoroughly enjoyed his company. During the tour, we stopped at a rice/pig farm, mushroom farm, lotus farm, and a local restaurant. In this way, the company supports other locals and shows tourists how locals live and interact. They picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel right on time and everything ran very smoothly. A very unique experience that we would highly recommend to anyone seeking an authentic local experience!
