TRIP
PROFILE

The trip can be started in Phnom Penh or Siem Reap, where the mountain bikes have been prepared. Our cycling guide will brief on the tour. Getting around and out of Phnom Penh is a busy traffic. So we might transfer a little bit if the traffic is worse. Most of the road surface is good with tarmac. Then we take the boat crossing Tonle Sap lake, which is best from July to February.

We ride approximately 320 km mostly on tarmac roads on most of the days except from Banteay Srei to Kbal Spean which is about 15km on the dirt road. Apart from Angkor complex, the other main interest are Kbal Spean known as the river of thousand lingas and Beng Mealea  ruin temple hidden in the jungle. The temple is charming, peaceful and has its own special character. Once it was featured in the movie stared by Indiana Jones and the Two Brother by French movie maker Jean Jacques Anaud.

It was built in 12th century by the famous King Jayavarvan VII indicated to his mother. While clearing back the forest archaeologists decided to leave the vegetation of Ta Phrom in place to serve as a reminder of how the original discoverers found it and the other Angkor temples.

Dear Mr Hun,

Thank you so much for an AMAZING trip!!! I wasn’t sure about doing this tour, because I thought I could do Cambodia more cheaply, but it was worth every penny for a totally stress-free and authentic experience.  

Sam was fantastic in Phnom Penh and getting us to Siem Reap, and sorted out my VN Visa seamlessly. It was such a blessing. Too bad he got sick (hope he’s feeling better soon!).

Aki was a most excellent replacement. We got to spend so much time off-road because he knows the area like the back of his hand! We even got to pass through the village where he grew up, and see authentic rice noodles being made. The highlight was getting to meet and play with some of the local children (I was on the bus waiting for the other real cyclists!). I cried when I left Siem Reap.

These guys know everything and everyone – it made it the best trip I’ve had in ages...

I’ll be back again – probably even next year. I found my soul and left my heart in Cambodia. Next time I’ll actually be in shape for cycling! This was the best way to see the real country...

Thanks again!!!
Robin
