tour details

Begin with a transfer to the West Gate of Preah Khan temple. Similar to Ta Prohm, Preah Khan consists of towered enclosures and shoulder-hugging corridors. Unlike Ta Prohm, however, Preah Khan is in a reasonable state of preservation and ongoing restoration efforts should maintain and even improve this situation. After collecting your bike from the East Gate of Preah Khan, you’ll ride along a picturesque forest path to Ta Nei temple. After a relaxed visit, you’ll continue again along the forest path to Takeo temple before continuing to the West Gate of Ta Prohm. A visit to Ta Prohm is a real highlight as it is one of the area’s most beautiful & untouched temples. Continue your ride to the east entrance ofthe legendary Angkor Wat for a brief visit before transferring back to your hotel.

      notes

      The wet season is not the ideal time for biking. The best season is from November through to April, roughly corresponding to the dry season and the tourist high season. May, June and July need not be a bad time either, as it is hard to predict when the rains will come. We would not recommend a biking trip during August and September.
