Day 1: Bangkok – Khao Yai

Meet in the hotel foyer after breakfast at 09.00am for your tour briefing. Transfer approximately 3 hours to the Khao Yai National Park area. In the afternoon we’ll get used to our bikes by taking a short warm up ride through the nearby rural villages, and then chill out by the swimming pool at our overnight resort accommodation.

Meet at your hotel in Bangkok in the morning before transferring to Khao Yai National Park where we will begin our cycling. Take a short ride through local villages and take in the scenery. Chill out by the pool with a sundowner and let the journey ahead sink in.

Meal: Dinner


Day 2: Khao Yai - Prachinburi

Today we skirt the Khao Yai National Park on our bikes, passing through rice filed, Buddhist monasteries and small villages along the way. Most of today will be spent on back roads and the occasional dirt track before arriving at our rustic resort for the evening.

Cycling distance: Approx. 50 Km

Difficulty: Moderate

Meals: Breakfast & Lunch


Day 3: Prachinburi - Sa Kaew

Riding directly from the resort, we follow minor roads through Thai rural landscapes including rubber and eucalyptus plantations as well as tapioca and rice fields. Today, there are a few easy rolling hills, but the route is mostly flat. There will be plenty of opportunities to stop and chat with the friendly Thai locals.

Cycling distance: Approx. 50 Km

Difficulty: Moderate

Meals: Breakfast & Lunch


Day 4: Sa Kaew – Aranyaprathet

Leaving our hotel early in the morning, we ride towards the beautiful Pang Sida National Park, where we can stop by a reservoir for a swim and a view of the untouched jungle on the other side. The afternoon ride follows very quiet, but well–maintained scenic roads on the way to Aranyaprathet and the Cambodian Border.

Cycling distance: Approx. 45 Km

Difficulty: Moderate

Meals: Breakfast & Lunch


Day 5: Into Cambodia and transfer to Siem Reap

Once we have successfully crossed the border into Cambodia, we transfer to the best riding near Siem Reap. This is a great introduction to rural Cambodia and Angkor, pass over dirt roads and through rustic villages that have changed little over the centuries. Take a well–earned dip in the pool as the sun descends.

Cycling distance: Approx. 30 km

Difficulty: Moderate

Meal: Breakfast, Lunch


Day 6: Explore magnificent Angkor by bike

Today, we may choose to have an early start to avoid the inevitable crowds drawn to the wonders of Angkor. The various temples are spread over a wide area, and are linked by shady avenues: meandering our way between them by bike gives us a unique perspective. Our cycle tour will include visits to Ta Prohm, the jungle–covered temple with amazing tree roots clinging to the ancient stones, the Bayon, with its 37 pagodas (originally there were 49) topped with the four faces of the king, South Gate of Angkor Thom, Elephant Terrace, Baphoun, the Royal Enclosure, Phimeanakas, Terrace of the Leper King and, of course, the fabulous Angkor Wat – with its huge moat, long causeway and massive towers – it is the largest temple complex in Asia.

Cycling distance: Approx. 30km

Difficulty: Easy/Moderate

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch


Day 7: Cycle to Banteay Srei

After breakfast, we cycle outside the main Angkor complex to the outlying temple of Banteay Srei, 28km from Siem Reap town. Our route takes us pass paddy fields, and through pretty villages. Banteay Srei was built in the 10th century and, although it is not a big temple, it is famous for its detailed and intricate stone carvings. It has been sometimes referred to as ‘the jewel in the crown of Angkorian art’. After visiting Banteay Srei, you have the choice to either continue cycling around and exploring more temples independently or driving back to Siem Reap. Siem Reap town is pleasant to wander around and don’t forget the Night Market for some great souvenir shopping or perhaps a “Dr. Fish” massage. Pub Street (and the surrounding alleys) in the evening, offers a wide variety of restaurants and bars to choose from – so you won’t go hungry (or thirsty) during your three nights in Siem Reap.

Cycling distance: Approx. 30 km

Difficulty: Easy/Moderate

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch


Day 8: Siem Reap – Tonle Sap Lake (Chong Kneas Floating Village) - Phnom Penh

In the morning, we will enjoy the Tonle Sap Lake, Asia's largest inland lake also the biggest harvest fresh water fish in the world, which swells to ten times its normal size during the wet season; here you will visit the people living, school, hospital, church, fishing farm, crocodile farm, souvenir shop in the floating village then go ahead to Phnom Penh. We roughly travel around the Tônlé Sap River which flows into the shallow Tônlé Sap Lake, the largest of South East Asia’s lakes. Numerous streams feed the lake and it then drains by the Tônlé Sap River west to the Mekong River. As it begins to recede again, the lake’s huge stocks of fish are easily trapped in nets and bamboo traps or simply caught in the branches of trees. Before reaching Phnom Penh, we’ll stop at the town of Skuon, where the local delicacy is fried spiders! In the 1950s and 1960s, Phnom Penh was one of the finest cities in South East Asia. Despite the wide scale destruction that took place after the Khmer Rouge emptied the city in 1975, Phnom Penh still manages to exude some colonial charm from a bygone era.

An estimated 14,000 to 20,000 Cambodians accused of being traitors were tortured to death or sent to their execution from here.

Continue joining our bus to visit the Russian Market – a good place to look for clothing or sarongs before having the rest of the day exploring Phnom Penh city by yourselves. There’s plenty to see including the temple of Wat Phnom, the National Museum and the French Quarter. There are also ‘bargains galore’ waiting to be picked up at another of the city’s most popular markets – the Central Market is where you will find the cities best gold and silver jeweler merchants.
