You will be met at Siem Reap airport and transferred to your hotel. After check in, test your bicycles in order to ensure the bike is the correct size, etc. The rest of the day is free for your own exploration. This evening we will head out to dinner at one of the best restaurants in town.
We have a full day exploring Angkor Wat and its surrounding temples. After the bike fitting and safety briefing, we ride to Angkor Wat and explore the magnificent temple complex. We then relax at a restaurant with the temples as a backdrop – a more glorious setting for a meal is hard to imagine. In the afternoon, cycle the Grand Circuit that includes the ancient walled city of Angkor Thom, and the overgrown temple of Ta Prohm. We do stop at each significant temple area and you will have plenty of time to explore and take pictures as your temple guide will inform you about the history of this magnificent area.
Meals: Breakfast /Lunch
This morning after breakfast we cycle to the rose sandstone temple of Banteay Srei and explore the temple’s magnificent carvings. We will pass many local villages and schools and people going about their day-to-day business and get a really good feel for life in Cambodia. On the way we have a chance to visit Banteay Samre, often missed but well worth a visit. This is one of the best rides on the tour. We stop at Banteay Srei for a well-earned rest before continuing to Kbal Spean (River of 1,000 Lingas) and lunch at a local restaurant. After lunch hiking to the top to view the riverbed carvings, we hike back to the start point and transfer by supported vehicle back to Siem Reap.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch
Today we leave the crowds behind and head towards the small village of Roulous, home to some of the oldest temples of the Angkor Complex. This beautiful 15km ride leads through rural Cambodia and offers plenty of opportunities to once more interact with the local people. Upon reaching Roulous we explore the three main temples – Lolei, Preah Ko, and Bakong. After discovering the fabulous temple ruins we continue our bicycle ride to the floating village of Kompong Phhluk. The submerged forest makes this tranquil place unique and is a treat for visitors. We enjoy a boat tour around the town, between the trees breaking through the water’s surface and soaking in the culture of living on the water. Return for lunch at a local restaurant before cycling or driving back to Siem Reap
