Overview

The ride will take you on the charming backroads and jungle trails. The beautiful temple appears amazingly just in front when pushing out from the trails. By assimilating and enjoying the jungle trails, it also takes you through the narrow country lanes and dirt roads that pass through the Cambodian countryside to Kbal Spean and the Thousand Lingas.

The last day of this trip will be on the Great Lake of Tonle Sap, where you will have the opportunity to observe daily life in the floating village. With many people living here, they’re still able to maintain their unique culture and traditions.

This tour is designed to visit Angkor Wat in a different way so that you can benefit from being on a bicycle and fully enjoy the beautiful views of both the jungle and Angkor Wat.

  • Day 1 - Cycle to Angkor Temples

    After breakfast at the hotel, you start biking for the morning temple exploration at the most illustrious temple with the smallest crowds. First, you will visit Ta Prohm, which is unique in that it has been left largely as it was found: overgrown by jungle trees and vines, with many parts of the temple crumbling to the ground. This makes the so-called Tomb Raider Temple, as it was used during the filming of the movie, one of the most picturesque and memorable temples in the Angkor complex.

    You will then head out to the ancient city of Angkor Thom and enter the city through the ancient Gate, an impressive stone gate carved with elephants and four giant faces. From here, continue to Bayon Temple, located in the center of the city and famed as the enigmatic faces representing the 54 provinces of the Great Khmer Empire. The Terrace of the Elephants and the Terrace of the Leper King are also must-visits as they are both known for their intricate bas-reliefs.

    You will take a break at lunch and stop at the local restaurant to enjoy tasteful Cambodian dishes.

    Lastly, you will bike to the gem of the Angkor complex, Angkor Wat. Following your tour leader, you will be mesmerized by the rich history and symbolism of this unique ancient temple. Afterward, you will return to your hotel.

  • Day 2 - Cycle to Banteay Samre, Banteay Srei & Kbal Spean

    Today, our bike tour takes us on unpaved roads through rural villages. We continue on a flat road for about 7 km to the temple of Banteay Samre. From there it goes back on unpaved roads through attractive villages, along with rice fields, and to the temple of Banteay Srei, which is located outside the actual temple city and is made of pink sandstone.

    The roads are peaceful, narrow, and very pretty all the way to Bantey Srei. There are plenty of beautiful and real country views to see along the way as you cycle past the local markets, schools, villages, and Buddhist temples. Taking a water break under the shade of the tree before we reach Bantey Srei, which is known as the Citadel of Women, this red sandstone temple is one of Angkor’s most significant structures as its walls are decorated with elaborate carvings, which have been preserved remarkably well.

    Enjoy your lunch at the foot of the mountain before taking a short transfer to Kbal Span. Then trek uphill along the jungle trail for 3 km to the waterfall and the River of Thousand Lingas. You can see the carvings on the riverbed and waterfall and return to Siem Reap by transfer.

  • Day 3 - Explore Roulous Group & Floating Village

    This morning, we embark on the Siem Reap backroads to the former Angkor city of Roulous Group. The temple was the center of Khmer civilization and was built by the Angkorian king in the 8th century. We explore the three main temples here: Lolei, Preah Ko, and Bakong Temple.

    We’ll eat lunch at a local house before we continue another 12 km to Tonle Sap lake to take a short cruise to Kampong Phluk to see the floating villages, where you’ll have an opportunity to learn about life on the water.

    Tonle Sap Lake is the largest lake in Southeast Asia and offers a unique way of life for those living on Cambodia’s Tonle Sap Lake, which is recognized as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.

    During the year, the lake supplies water to several provinces for agriculture. In the rainy season, the lake serves as a big water storage, and water flows out through its branches from the lake to the Mekong River and down to the China Ocean. En-route, we take the back road to Siem Reap. The road is the most peaceful part, and you will ride past many stilted houses and pagodas, making this final ride of today full of joy.
