Itinerary

Day 2: Cycle the Angkor temples (16 miles / 25 kilometers)

After breakfast at the hotel, you will start biking the morning temple exploration at the most illustrious temple with fewer 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 of the Angkor complex.

You will then head out to the ancient city of Angkor Thom, enter the city through the ancient gate, an impressive stone gate carved with elephants and four giant faces. From here, continue to Bayon Temple, found in the center of the city 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 lunchtime 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.

  • Included meals: Breakfast and lunch

Day 3: Explore the countryside and Angkor Silk Farm (12 miles / 20 kilometers)

Today, you’ll have a great ride out of the hustle and bustle of Siem Reap’s downtown to the wonderful views of Siem Reap countryside through paddy fields and stunning scenery to explore the everyday life of Cambodians. There are multiple scenic places for you to stop, including rice fields, local market, mushroom farm, rice wine distillation, lotus farms, and village handicraft. You’ll enjoy lunch at a local restaurant, providing the opportunity to try the delicious Cambodian cuisine.

Return back to town and take a break at your hotel before the transfer to Angkor Silk Farm where you can see the whole silk creation process from growing the food for the silkworms, breeding the worms, silk extraction, spinning and refinement, traditional dyeing to looming. Angkor Silk Farm is part of the Artisans Angkor, a not-for-profit organization set up to revive Cambodia’s artistic pursuits and provide employment opportunities in poor rural areas.
