Overview

Book
Born out of the Khmer Empire, which dominated much of the region 1000 years ago, the Kingdom of Cambodia is one of the most exciting of South-East Asian destinations. This leisurely cycle tour is simply the best way to explore the highlights of a country whose chief means of transport often seems to be the bike. Starting out in Siem Reap, we are provided with our bikes and set off to explore on backroads and village trails amongst the breathtaking temples of Angkor Wat.

We also seek out less well-known temples and sacred sites, such as Kbal Spean, hidden in the forest. A boat trip on the great waterway of Tonle Sap then takes us to Battambang, set in a landscape of rice fields, palm trees and pretty riverside villages. Moving on via a forest ride in the Kirirom National Park, we have 2 nights at a homestay in Chi Phat on the edge of the Cardamom Mountains, where we ride on jungle trails to the waterfalls of O'Malu and to the tribal village of O'Kay. Descending from the mountains, we transfer to the beachfront town of Kampot, for some R&R, including a boat trip to an island in the Gulf of Thailand. A final city tour of Phnom Penh and a sunset cruise on the Mekong River is a great way to sign off on this unforgettable adventure. A leisurely mountain biking holiday, offering the chance to experience the very best of Cambodia.

An excellent trip with lots of variety. This is described as an easy cycling holiday and I would certainly agree with that. Whilst the heat and humidity makes the cycling harder, our trip leader was excellent at ensuring we took regular breaks and drank enough water. As a result, this was very manageable. There is a good variety of cycling, temple sightseeing, exploring, swimming, kayaking, and leisure time throughout the trip. I would recommend that you check with you regarding the kit list before you travel as we took lots of spare parts which were not required by the support crew. Also, for us, specialist cycling shoes/shorts/gloves were not required and therefore I would suggest that you simply take whatever you are comfortable cycling in. As you cycle on backroads, these can be very dusty and you can end up very dusty and dirty at the end of each day.

Great biking holiday. The cycling can be a bit more demanding than the grade 2 suggests due to the heat and the possible pace of the group although the back up team always are on hand to provide the option of a lift in the support vehicle. A great itinerary providing a variety of experiences of temples, villages and landscapes including some river trips with fascinating floating villages. An excellent local guide worked very hard to look after the group. Some accommodation was a bit unsatisfactory but our guide was anxious to receive our feedback and clearly looking to explore future improvements.
