1st Stop: Moat of Angkor Wat
Angkor Wat is also known as the soul of Cambodia. Take a break at the quiet but impressive moat and get to know the history of this beautiful monument. Discover what makes this building so unique and learn more about the immense power of the Khmer Kingdom at the peak of its influence in Southeast Asia.
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 of Angkor Thom
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‘ really means, take a closer look at the moat and the unique bridge and listen to the story of the monumental building. You weren’t aware of the former function of the South Gate? Listen to our tour guide and you’ll soon learn more!
4th Stop: Prasat Chrung
After cycling along the top of the massive wall of Angkor Thom you‘ll next discover a small, lonely temple in the southwest corner of the Angkor Thom Wall. Learn about the history of the temple and enjoy the incredible view on the moat of Angkor Thom and the surrounding countryside at this remote spot.
5th Stop: West Gate of Angkor Thom
The West Gate of Angkor Thom is marked by its old, rather ruinous look. Experience the uniqueness of this old monument, take a look around and discover the difference between this gate and the Southern one. Due to the small number of tourists exploring the West gate of Angkor Thom it is nearly completely preserved in its original condition.
6th Stop: Bayon Temple
Located directly in the center of Angkor Thom, Bayon is one of the essential temples to visit. Once built as the state temple of the former king Javayarman VII, 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 some typical Khmer meals for you.
You will also get a discount on your meal.
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 much the same condition in which it was found: trees growing out of the ruins and hidden rooms guarantee an extraordinary experience.
9th 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 next 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 to our sunset spot.
11th Stop: Pre Rup
As the finish of our tour, you will get to know the mystical, peaceful atmosphere of Angkor during sunset. Discovering the temples in the evening light will be an adventurous experience emphasizing the temples’ beauty.
