An unforgettable way to tour Angkor Wat and its surrounding sights - Bike quiet back trails, explore the breathtaking Angkor temples, see all the highlights and hidden attractions all while cycling through the friendly Cambodian countryside outside Siem Reap.

This is a guided bike tour of the most intriguing of the major temples. We visit Ta Prohm, The Elephant Terrace and the Bayon as well as a couple of less visited ones along the way. We finish with a ride on small trails through the villages and back to town. This is a truly enjoyable ride on a good bike with a friendly Cambodian cycling guide.

For Bike the Angkor Temples
Gather at the Grasshopper Shop
Meet at The Grasshopper Shop at 7:15 am, just over the river from the old market. Bring camera, sunglasses, sunscreen and comfortable cycling clothes. We will start our ride out towards the main temple area at 7:30 along a small road which follows the Siem Reap River.
Cycle the Angkor Temples
The first temple we visit is the amazing Angkor Wat. We then cycle the main circuit road and just as we enter Angkor Thom, we leave the road and spend the rest of the day on charming, quiet trails through these majestic structures. We visit The Bayon, famous for its serene faces and The Elephant Terrace while our lunch is prepared. After lunch we visit Ta Prohm, known commonly as the jungle temple, with tree roots attempting to reclaim the ruins. From here we ride a red dirt road and then some great small tracks back to town. You can expect to return to town around 4:30 pm.
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.
What's the Riding Like?
This ride is predominately on flat tracks and small roads - there are no hills in the area so anyone who can reasonably ride a bike can do this tour. There are some sections on small dirt trails so beginner riders should not choose this tour.

What our guests tell us...
Just a selection of our great reviews!
We really enjoyed our day of cycling Bike the Angkor temples! Our guide, Roem, took good care of us and gave us good information throughout the day … A really fun way to see the temples and even see small bits and pieces of ruins as you ride through the jungle.
Highly recommend doing this tour to avoid all the mayhem of the taxis, tuk tuks and buses around the key temples, we were able to slip off onto the easily rideable tracks through the jungle past the villages, and keep cool whilst experiencing a different perspective of the area.
At each stop, [our guide] Chen spoke about the significance of the temples and explained some of the stories carved into the walls. He also allowed us our own time to walk around and explore. Overall this was a great experience - even the rides between the temples were beautiful.
Our guide Hun was very informative and fun. The safety standard was good and there was alot of variety in the day. The lunch was delicious. Highly recommend this tour.
