Itinerary Details

  1. Day 1Siem Reap: Arrival day and welcome dinner

    You will arrive and stay in the heart of the cosmopolitan lifestyle that has been thrust on Siem Reap since the country has opened up to the outside world. After you are picked up from the airport and taken to the hotel, take some time to relax or explore the city before meeting for a welcome dinner. Dinner is at one of Siem Reap’s best restaurants, Marum. It’s part of the Friends International social enterprise projects, providing vocational training for marginalized youth.

    • Tanei Boutique Villa, Siem Reap
    • Dinner
  2. Day 2Siem Reap: Sunrise cycling around the temples of Angkor

    Sunrise is from 4.30am as you hit the bikes for the first time, but it is so worth it. Sunrise over Angkor Wat is a bucket list achievement for good reason. From here you’ll venture on to other, and arguably more impressive, temples in the area for the remainder of the morning. In the early afternoon you’ll have the chance to visit your first NGO of the trip. You will spend time with these incredibly inspirational people that have dedicated their lives to helping others. Hear their stories and understand what the real issues of the country are.

  3. Day 3Battambang: River riding, local villages and coffee stops

    You will ride out of Siem Reap to the boat port (20km/12.4mi). Travelling across the wetlands and navigating your way around Tonle Sap river is an experience you will never forget. The road soon turns to single track as you get more and more remote. You will farewell the support van and venture on into the rural and barren lands of Cambodia. Few villages exist out here, supporting themselves through sustainable fishing methods. After around a 4hr boat ride, it’s another 20-30km (12.4-18.6mi) to Battambang, depending on the river levels. Battambang is great for shopping, with colonial style streets and hidden secrets where bric-a-brac abounds. Dinner is in another social enterprise based restaurant, Jann Bai, that is often hailed as the best dinner in Cambodia!

    Riding today is between 40-50km (25-31mi).

  4. Day 4Pursat: Battambang to Banan by bike

    After an early breakfast, you’ll make your way along the dusty red back roads to the nearby local attraction of Banan Temple. You’ll cycle back to the town of Battambang to explore a little more and grab lunch at leisure. You’ll get to the town of Pursat by early afternoon and into your hotel to enjoy the swimming pool and on site massage spa. You’ll get a great experience from an amazing NGO, Sustainable Cambodia. A full presentation by the executives in their office and a tour of their facilities. See the difference the NGO makes first hand. Be inspired by the real difference made by real people.

  5. Day 5Cycling into Phnom Penh, riverside villages and Tonle Sap

    You will start cycling 75km (46mi) out from Phnom Penh, and ride all the way up to the front door of the hotel. The back roads bring in some of the most spectacular scenery as you pass through villages living on Tonle Sap lake. The ride takes in great coffee stops, endless photo opportunities and a couple of ferries. For dinner, it’s a feast of tarantula’s and crickets at the famous Romdeng restaurant, a social enterprise restaurant from the friends International team.

  6. Day 6Friends International, S-21 and BBQ

    You’ll start the day by meeting the incredible people at Friends International and learn about the wonderful work they do within the community. This is a great insight into REAL local everyday issues, from real local everyday heroes. You'll then venture towards the Russian market and move to Tuol Sleng, also known as S-21 Genocide Museum. This devastating chapter of the Khmer Rouge and Cambodian history is emotionally challenging but strongly recommended. There is some free time in the afternoon to process your day, whilst you’ll meet again for a local Khmer BBQ dinner tonight and feast on a selection of local meats and vegetables, cooked at the group table on a communal BBQ.

  7. Day 7Departure

    Congratulations! You’ve cycled across Cambodia, covered almost 200km (124mi) in the saddle and more than scratched the surface as to what Cambodia about. You’ll enjoy a final breakfast together before you set off to the airport for your next adventure.
