tour details

Commence your Roluos Market cycling tour with a 15km transfer from town to the outskirts of the city. It is from here that you’ll begin your 20km bicycle trip to the lively Roluos market. As you cycle along, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to ask questions and soak up the countryside atmosphere. This is a great chance for you to take photos of village life; of locals selling indigenously grown vegetables, various species of fish and other local produce. You’ll continue biking through villages where you’ll see the small colourful gardens that locals have developed next to their houses. You’ll also have a stop at Kok Srok village to see the special herb “Kanh Chaay”, used heavily in Khmer cuisine.

      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.
