    tour details

    Cycling the countrysides of Siem Reap is the perfect way to explore the surrounding villages and feel the overall ambiance. This approximately 20km tour will provide you with an insight into local Cambodian life that is generally unseen by the regular tourist, and discover the cultural diversity of the region.

    tour description

    18 km on mostly paved roads.
    Transfer. Begin your cycling tour at the South Gate of the ancient capital Angkor Thom (12th century) with its huge statues depicting the churning of the ocean of milk and cycle to Bayon temple (unique for its 54 towers decorated with over 200 smiling faces of Avolokitesvara). After visiting Bayon continue to the Terraces of Elephants and Leper King, Death Gate and Victory Gate. Proceed cycling to one of the most beautiful temples in the area: Ta Prohm. Visit the temple which is swallowed by the jungle and has been relatively untouched since it was discovered and retains much of its mystery. End your ride at Srah Srang or Phnom Bakheng. Transfer back to Siem Reap.

        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.
