    tour details

    If there is a great way to visit the temples, it is definitely by cycling through the parc.
    Cycling the temples gives you an experience you cannot have if you are in a tuktuk or a car as not only is it easy to cycle around but you also avoid the main roads as much as possible taking jungle paths to get from one site to another.

    tour description

    At 07:30 hours, a tuktuk or a van (depending on your preference) will pick you up at your hotel to take you to the starting point of this cycling tour*.
    Beginning at Angkor Wat, you will ride approximately 28km throughout the day and go through Angkor Thom, visit Bayon & Ta Prohm, Preah Khan & Preah Neak Pean, Ta Som & Pre Rup, Banteay Kdei, as well as some other minor but interesting temples and sites such as the Baphuon, the Terrace of the Leper King, the Terrace of the Elephants, the Twelve Prasats, Spean Thma, and Sra Srang.

    This trip will give you of a great picture of the rich and diverse architecture of 11th century Cambodia.
    The tour will end around 17:00 hours back to Angkor Wat where your tuktuk (or van) will await to take you 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.
