Cycle through Cambodia
Cycling is one of our favourite ways to earn an Angkor sunrise; from leisurely temple jaunts to full cross-country journeys, there are plenty of ways to pedal your way around Cambodia, and all of them are inspiring. You’ll stop for breathers surrounded by beautiful scenery, cycle alongside beaches that our Cambodia expert Nick secretly wishes he could keep to himself, and explore some of the most accessible National Parks in South-East Asia.
What to expect from a Cambodia cycling adventure...
Cycling is a great way to see Cambodia, bringing you close to local life and taking you off the well-worn tourist tracks. It’s possible to arrange all kinds of two-wheel adventures, lasting from a few hours to a liberating couple of weeks. However long you choose, you’ll be accompanied by a friendly and knowledgeable guide who will show you the parts of Cambodia that the average holidaymaker rarely sees.
There’s something incredibly satisfying and powerful about pedalling your way around the country, passing from buzzing cities to remote villages, and the quiet shorelines beyond. You’ll get a huge sense of achievement from the experience, and if you choose one of the Angkor cycling tours you’ll feel entirely deserving of the spectacular sunrise over its ancient stone walls. As well as offering a versatile, healthy and eco-friendly way to see Cambodia, this experience will be an achievement that you can look back on with pride for years to come.
If you opt for a multi-day trip, you’ll be fully supported by a vehicle at all times. This means that you’ll only cycle as long as you feel comfortable, and you can take a break whenever you tire. The trips are designed to be invigorating and bracing but certainly not back-breaking, so the pace will be leisurely for the most part. This will give you the chance to watch local life unfold around you and the time to enjoy the scenery as you swoosh by.
Most importantly, you’re in charge. You can cycle at your own pace, make a pitstop if something interesting catches your eye, and take a break whenever you begin to run out of steam. Your plans can be personally tailored, your guide will go out of his way accommodate your needs and you’ll have plenty of free time to explore independently.
Cambodia is very close to Nick's heart, and he loves to get out into its countryside. He says 'Cambodia’s dusty countryside trails make for perfect cycling terrain, well away from vehicles (other than the odd ox & cart), and you can cycle days without meeting anyone other than welcoming village children and passing any buildings with more than one storey.'

'A trip highlight - the cycling through small remote villages and being greeted enthusiastically by most of the children (and adults) as we passed through.'
Although the pace is gentle and roads fairly flat, this experience does require a good level of fitness.
