As the other early risers head back to their hotels, you will have Angkor to yourselves in the best light of the day. Your guide will take you through to give you an overview of Angkor Wat after which you enjoy breakfast, just outside the temple area in peaceful surroundings.
Biking Angkor Archeological Park
The rest of the day is spent riding the back trails through ruins and forest and stopping at both iconic and less known temples. Among others, we stop at the Bayon and Ta Prom, both considered essential temples to visit. We take lunch by the small reservoir called Sra Srang and as the day heats up, we drive back to town and to your hotel. You can expect to arrive back around 2pm.
Please note: Appropriate dress (knees and shoulders fully covered) is compulsory for entry into certain sections of Angkor Wat, and should also be observed throughout all temple areas for reasons of cultural sensitivity.

Just a selection of our great reviews!
We enjoyed the tour so much that we will be recommending Grasshopper Adventures to anyone who is travelling to South East Asia.
A huge thank you to Chen our tour guide for providing an informative and very interesting tour of the temples. Great personality! He took some lovely photos throughout the day! He placed us in a great spot for the sunrise at Angkor Wat! … We came back on a such a high! Thank you grasshopper adventures for creating a perfect day!
Riding through the jungle and local villages is a highlight. Very cool addition to seeing the temples. Super beneficial having Bo guide us through each of the temples. Would have missed a lot without him.
I 1000% recommend this trip. I was nervous sunrise was too early for me but it was beautiful and worth it to be able to bike around on little traveled trails to see many temples. It was a beautiful, serene way to see Angkor Wat and the surrounding temples. Our guide was super informative and funny. Lunch was delicious. Cannot recommend enough.
