1 Day Siem Reap Countryside by Bike Tour

Visiting Siem Reap is an unforgettable experience, a riot of magical temples, sumptuous spas and spectacular street food.

Itinerary

Your countryside biking adventure begins with your friendly local guide picking you up from the meeting point and leading you to the bike shop to pick out your two-wheeled steed. Here we’ll talk about bicycle safety (most of the journey takes place on dirt tracks, away from the main roads) and tell you a bit about our itinerary for the day.

The itinerary will vary slightly each time, depending on what’s happening that day in the villages we visit. We may stop to watch seasonal activities such as rice or vegetable planting or harvesting or have a go at palm leaf weaving. A stop at a family farm is essential though, where you’ll have an opportunity to learn about the sort of work they do and chat with the family about local life.

During our cycle tour, we will pass by sweeping rice terraces and sprawling jungle. We’ll stop to take plenty of photos along the way and we’ll say ‘hi’ to friendly villagers who are going about their daily lives.

We will also explore an area which was used by Angelina Jolie in a movie called ‘First They Killed My Father’ which recounts the terrors suffered by Loung Ung (a child at the time but now a respected author and human rights activist) at the hands of the brutal Khmer Rouge. This area represents the remains of the first major capital of the Khmer empire and is one of the earliest known settlement sites in the country. The villages we visit here are little known and are hidden in a secret location that keeps the tourist hordes firmly at bay.

After a full morning of exploration on two wheels, you will have worked up quite an appetite. Our next stop of the day then will be a lunch date with the Totung Thngai community, who have prepared us a delicious and authentic meal. As we eat, we’ll chat to locals about daily life and local food culture.

Our final stop of the day is the beautiful Aranh Rangsei Pagoda where you will learn about monk life and the temples. Well, you couldn’t partake in a Siem Reap tour without visiting a temple could you?!

We’ll leave our bikes at the final stop and jump in a tuk tuk back to your centrally located hotel. Before you go, don’t forget to ask your guide for more tips in what else to see, do and eat during your stay in Siem Reap.

Please note: The total distance for the biking portion of this tour is approximately 18km.
