Charming Cambodia: Angkor Wat to Phnom Penh

Tour Description: Guided

Discover the allure of Cambodia on this 13-day cycling tour. Pedal around the spectacular Angkor Wat temples, cycle through traditional Khmer villages, follow the Mekong River to Phnom Penh, and relax on the beaches of Sihanoukville.

A cycle tour of Cambodia is undoubtedly the best way to really connect with the country, its people, to experience the tempo of village life, and escape the well trodden tourist trail.

This Charming Cambodia Cycle Tour is fully supported and fully guided. Your cycle tour of Cambodia begins with easy cycling around the spectacular Angkor Wat temples. After a few days you leave the tourists well and truly behind as you head east, via the jungle clad temple of Beng Mealea, to the town of Kompong Cham, sitting on the banks of the mighty Mekong river.

You then follow the Mekong through picturesque villages to charming, colonial Phnom Penh. Here you will discover the sights, and learn about the countries traumatic past, plus enjoy a delightful cycle / cruise to ‘Silk Weaving Island’ located in the Mekong river.

You then pedal south to often forgotten Takeo where you will visit the New Futures orphanage and have the opportunity of donating a bike to one of the children through the ‘Pedal2Empower’ project. The next day you spin towards the coastal hills, stopping off in colonial Kampot with the Bokor mountains as a backdrop. Then the final leg to the beautiful beaches and seafood of Sihanoukville.

As a reward for completing your cycling adventure you have a free day in Sihanoukville to relax on the beach or perhaps do a bit of island-hopping. You then return to Phnom Penh for your departure having had an unforgettable introduction to the real Cambodia!

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.
