Ancient Angkor Wat
Angkor Wat Explorer Cycle Tour (5-day)

Tour Description: Guided

Discover the Cambodian countryside and its many riches from ancient temples to floating villages by bike. Spend your first and last day exploring Siem Reap, including its Old Market Phsar Chas and the temples of Angkor on foot, and spend three days exploring the area cycling.

Cyclists with a taste for adventure and leaving the beaten track are discovering Cambodia, and loving what they find! Cycle tourism in Cambodia is a very new and an excellent way of leaving the tourists behind and exploring the real Cambodia by experiencing real interaction with the locals. You will cycle through traditional wood and thatch villages that seemingly have remained unchanged for centuries, witness locals tilling their vibrant rice fields, watch barefoot children herding the family cow, laugh as chickens scatter at you approach, and of course exchange greetings as you pass the many Khmers whose bicycle is their only form of transport.

You will certainly be viewed with curiosity by the friendly smiling villagers and encouraged on your way by a chorus of 'Hello' sung by amazed, giggling children.

This Angkor Wat Explorer 5-Day Cycle Tour is fully supported and fully guided. There is possibly no better way of discovering the ancient Angkor temples than cycling along forest tracks and emerging upon them.

This 5 day cycle tour allows you to fully explore the Angkor temples at a relaxed pace as well as enjoying a delightful cruise on the Tonle Sap Lake (the largest in South East Asia) and witnessing its fascinating floating villages. Plus in your free time you may wish to take advantage of the many excellent spas in Siem Reap and receive a soothing massage, your reward after a few days of cycling.

A note about weather: Cambodia is classic tropical climates with generally warm to hot days and warm nights. You won't need any warm clothing on this tour. The coolest months are November to January.

During the wet season (May-Oct) it does rain most days but the rain generally falls in the late afternoon or night - after we have finished our cycling. The wet season is actually a fantastic time to visit Cambodia as the rain brings the fields and country to life. Endless green rice fields are a feature of this time of year.
