1st Stop: Angkor Wat
Watch the sun rise over the three iconic towers of Angkor Wat. You will have the opportunity to move around the temple complex and discover its hidden paths and detailed reliefs. We won’t stay there for too long, however; we will escape the crowded main roads and continue by cycling surrounding the moat of Angkor Wat.
2nd Stop: Local Village
It’s hard to imagine for most tourists, but many people still live in villages surrounding Angkor Wat. You will get a real insight into everyday life. Learn about traditional palm leaf architecture and find out why Cambodian houses are built on stilts.
3rd Stop: South Gate
Experience the impressive, well preserved south gate of the former Khmer capital, Angkor Thom. See the huge defense walls, get to know what ‘Angkor Thom‘ means, take a closer look at the moat and the unique bridge and listen to the story of the monumental building.
4th Stop: Prasat Chrung
After cycling along the top of the massive wall of Angkor Thom you’ll discover a small, lonely temple in the southwestern corner of the Angkor Thom Wall. Enjoy the incredible view over the moat of Angkor Thom and surrounding paddy fields at this remote spot.
5th Stop: West Gate
The West Gate of Angkor Thom is characterized by its old, ruinous look. Experience the uniqueness of this old monument, take a look around and learn about the difference between this gate and the Southern one. Due to the small number of tourists exploring the gate, it is nearly completely preserved in its original condition.
6th Stop: Bayon
Located directly in the center of Angkor Thom Bayon is one of the essential temples to visit. Once built as the state temple, Bayon has now become one of the main tourist attractions of the Angkor Archeological Park. Find out about the reliefs and unique architecture of the temple that is best known today for its gigantic face sculptures.
7th Stop: Lunch
After having seen different temples we will have lunch at our favorite restaurant together. Our tour guides are happy to recommend typical Khmer meals for you.
8th Stop: Preah Khan Temple
Cycling along hidden dirt paths in the jungle of Angkor, we will reach Preah Khan. This lesser known temple which used to be a sizable university has hardly been restored therefore remaining in pretty much the same condition in which it was found: trees growing out of the ruins and hidden rooms guarantee an extraordinary experience.
9th Stop: Stop Ta Nei Temple
After cycling even deeper into the Cambodian jungle, we will arrive at Ta Nei, a hidden gem that is rarely visited by other tourists. You will have time to explore this smaller temple and stroll undisturbed along the original walls while listening to the sound of cicadas.
10th Stop: Ta Keo Temple
Our final stop will be at Ta Keo, a temple even bigger than Bayon, but definitely less crowded. Find out why the construction of this temple was never completed. Walk up the steep stairs and take a moment to enjoy the view over the surrounding jungle before cycling back to our office on the crowded streets of Siem Reap.
