tour details

More than just the location of the famous Angkor Wat, Siem Reap offers incredible sights and is an amazing place to explore by bike. We’ll start by riding from Siem Reap to the 10th century Banteay Srei temple, regarded as the crown jewel of classical Khmer art. Dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva, it includes some of the finest stone carvings on earth. After lunch, we’ll continue cycling on secondary and unpaved roads to Preah Khan and visit the temple of the same name, built by King Jayavarman VII. We’ll then continue to Neak Pean, a fountain built in the middle of a pool, and ride to Banteay Kdei, also called the “Citadel of Monks’ cells”, which is surrounded by four concentric walls. On our way back to the town of Siem Reap, enjoy the beautiful scenery along Cambodia’s countryside roads.

      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.
