Arrival Siem Reap - Cycling Tour Angkor Area// (25 km)
On arrival at Siem Riep Airport, you are met by our guide and transferred to hotel. The tranquil Siem Reap Town is our base for visiting the world famous temples of the ancient city Angkor, which was the capital of the powerful Khmer Empire from 802 AD to 1350 AD. This stunning and extensive site sprawls over an area of 60 square miles in dense jungle. We get our first biking experience as we cycle to the archeological area. The first stop is South Gate of Angkor Thom, which is famous for its series of colossal human faces carved in stone. We also visit the impressive Bayon Temple, the Royal Enclosure, Phimeanakas, the Elephant Terrace, and the Terrace of the Leper King and the largest as well as most complete structure of Angkor Wat. We continue riding our bike to Banteay Kdei, Ta Prohm and Ta Keo Temples. Overnight in Siem Reap.
Siem Reap -Bateay Srei -Kbal Spean -Banteay Samre (B) // (52 km)
Breakfast at hotel. The exciting biking trip continues to explore some outlying sites. We make our way beyond the Angkor Complex through the Preah Dark village to the intricately carved and well preserved Banteay Srei Temple. On arrival we stroll around this beautiful landmark which was designed to leave no space undecorated. Afterwards we ride our bike through the rugged mountain scenery to Kbal Spean, known as the River of 1000 Lingars. This place offers at first sight no particular attractions except the natural environment, but a careful looking will enable us to discover the impressive riverbed covered by many lingars. They are carved in stone in the past to sanctify the water and thank the gods for their gifts. The next stop is Banteay Samre Temple which is adorned with impressive reliefs depicting scenes of Vishunu as well as Krishna legends. Overnight in Siem Reap.
Siem Reap - Tonle Sap Lake - Departure (B) // (30km)
Breakfast at hotel. Heading out of town we cycle on a rugged road along the Siem Reap River to Tonle Sap Lake. This shallow lake boats the largest natural fresh water body in Southeast Asia and flows into the Tonle Sap River which joins the Mekong River in Phnom Penh. On arrival we enjoy a short boat excursion, exploring this famous lake. The experience is wonderful as we pass by floating village, friendly children in small boats and fishermen pulling in morning catch. This excursion is all depending on your departure time. The trip ends after your transfer to Siem Reap Airport for departure.
