Gather at the Grasshopper Shop
Meet at the Grasshopper Shop at 9B Benoit Street at 7:45 am. Bring a camera, sunglasses, sunscreen and comfortable cycling clothes.
Dive into the countryside
We set off from our shop at 7:30am and. After a safety briefing, we cycle to the outskirts of the Angkor Archeological Park as we make our way to the countryside to experience a way of life that has changed little over the centuries.
After a 10 km ride through small paths and backstreets, we make our way to a local basket/rattan weaver. Learn about this age-old craft, watch the master and give it a try yourself.
Once we are done learning about weaving, we’ll get back on the bikes and continue our exploration of the countryside. Riding past rice fields and buffalos, we’ll make our way to a typical Cambodian noodle shop to discover a staple dish in the Khmer diet: Num Banh Chok.
Next, we’ll get back on the bikes for a short ride as we cycle our way to a village house to relax and enjoy some snacks. This stop offers a great opportunity to experience first-hand daily life in the countryside. While building techniques have changed over the years, the guiding principles behind their design remain the same and reflect the lifestyle and challenges of living in the countryside.
Next, we head to the West Baray, a man-made lake dating back to Angkorian times. Here, we will ride along the banks, watching fishermen go about their day while birds peacefully fly above them.
You can expect to return to Siem Reap around noon
