Full day bike tour in Siem Reap, Cambodia
Cycle quiet back trails, explore breathtaking temples in the stunning and friendly Cambodian countryside. This bike tour runs in Siem Reap. 

Escape the crowds, the busy roads and the well worn tourist trail at Angkor. Cycle the small tracks and minor roads to see a different side of the Angkor Temples. This is a guided bike tour of the most intriguing of the major temples. We visit Tha Prom, 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.

If you can ride a bike, then you will love this bike tour. The distance is approximately 30 km on mainly flat tracks and small roads. We will stop often for photos, temple exploration on foot and refreshments. 

Please note: Cambodian day tours will not operate April 14th, 15th & 16th due to Khmer New Year celebrations. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Hidden Trails

While we take you to see many of the iconic temples of the Angkor Archeological Park our means of travel is half the fun. We ride the back roads and hidden dirt trails to escape the crowds and bus tourists.

Good Bikes

Quality, well maintained imported GT mountain bikes with full hydraulic disc brakes a helmet and reusable sports water bottle are provided.

Ladies Bikes

Optionally we are also able to offer Women’s specific frames. The Cannondale Adventure Women’s bike offers a more upright ‘cruising’ style position while still incorporating front suspension in a weight saving frame with a wide range of gears. Easy ground reach also makes for a more confident ride for those less familiar with regular mountain bike frames. Please select this option when making your online booking and our team will confirm availability.

Tour Itinerary

For Bike the Angkor Temples

Gather at the Grasshopper Shop
Meet at The Grasshopper Shop at 7:30 am, just over the river from the old market. Bring camera, sunglasses, sunscreen and comfortable cycling clothes. You will start with a ride out towards the main temple area on a small road following the 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 Tha Prom, 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?

Flat terrain

25-30km riding

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.

Just a selection of our great Trip Advisor reviews!

I recently did the Angkor Temples Bike Tour with my 13-year-old son and it was quite simply one of the best travel experiences of our lives. - I'd give it 6 stars if I could!

Caitlin December 2017

We booked grasshoppers day tour originally because we wanted to have a guided tour which involved a bit of adventure along the way. This was so much more than that.

Peter L December 2017

What a day! Easy to organise, picked up and dropped off from the hotel. The guide was very informative about the history of the area and knew all the best places to get a photo. The bike ride was relatively easy with our three kids all under 11 completing the ride with no dramas.
