SIEM REAP (ANGKOR WAT) CYCLING TOUR (PRICE: USD44 PER PERSON)
TOUR NAME: ESSENTIAL ANGKOR (FULL DAY)
No one knows Cambodia better than our local people. As a local company, we have been following our vision to take tourists to see REAL Cambodia by bike. For visiting Angkor temples, we do not recommend to do in half day as it is not worth paying the Angkor pass USD20. Even half day tour, have to buy full day ticket. Another reason, tourists do not have enough time to learn about the history of each temple plus the cycling 30km. So we recommend only full day cycling tour to visit Angkor temples. If you have only half day available, please choose our half day Coutryside Bike Ride or Tonle Sap bike ride.
Day 1: Siem Reap - Small Circuit (30km) - Angkor complex
Continue the cycling through small circuit passing Ta Keo temple, Chao Say Tevoda, Tommanon before reaching to Angkor Thom city. There you will see, Terrace of Leper King, Terrace of Elephant, Baphoun, Phimean Akas. Stop at Bayon temple and start the visit (45 minutes-1 hour). Angkor Thom built by Cambodia's great king, Jayavarman VII. An eight-meter high wall encloses this ten square kilometre city, which is encircled by a moat. The famous Bayon, in the geographical heart of Angkor Thom, is a remarkable 54 tower temple. Initially the temple appears to be a shapeless mass of grey and brown stone, but it is only as you get closer that you realize every tower has the carved face of Avalokiteshvara on it.
After the visit, we cycle to Angkor Wat to finish the small circuit. Stop at South Gate of Angkor Thom for taking photo. Access via a causeway over the moat that are flanked by statues of Gods on the left and devils on the right. We enjoy cycling on the back road on the great wall of Angkor Thom city. Then visit the magnificent 12th century Angkor Wat. It is visually, architecturally and artistically breathtaking. Angkor Wat is a massive three-tiered pyramid crowned by five beehive-like towers rising 65 meters from ground level. Suryavarman II constructed - Angkor Wat in the form of massive 'temple mountain' dedicated to the Hindu god, Vishnu. Return back to the hotel in Siem Reap.

I enjoyed it very much. Cycling proved to be a wonderful way to see the temples and the surrounding countryside. Much better than a car. I honestly cannot think of anything for improvement. The bike was quite comfortable, the lunch was lovely, and Da is an excellent guide. It was also quite nice to have the support van with cold water and those refreshingly cold wipes.
