Tour Itinerary

 Day 1

Morning

Your tuk-tuk driver will take you to our Butterfly Tours’ office, the starting point of your tour! From here, we will embark on a relaxing ride around the Siem Reap countryside, taking in views and observing locals engaged in their everyday activities of basket weaving and farming. Chat to friendly locals and take part in a Khmer cooking class—just in time for lunch!

Afternoon

After a brief rest, we will begin the second part of our tour with a tuk-tuk ride towards the floating villages built on the Tonle Sap River. Here, you will take a boat ride with your guides, who will tell you more about the local community. Learn about the floating villages and the nearby fish farm—an economic activity that continues to sustain many local families. Complimented by a beautiful sunset, the Tonle Sap is also an excellent spot for bird watching, so be sure to get your cameras ready! At dusk, you have the option of joining us for dinner or exploring Siem Reap town.

 Day 2

Morning and Lunch

Rise and shine! We will start early—4AM—so as to enable you to catch the sunrise at the ancient temple of Angkor Wat. Believe us, the early start is worth it! As the sun rises over Angkor’s three magnificent towers, your temple guide will tell you more about the significance of Angkor and the religious iconography found around the complex. Later, we will cycle to a nearby village to enjoy a local breakfast and much needed Khmer coffee! Bright and alert now, we will then cycle to Angkor Thom and share a picnic lunch before heading off to the Jungle Temple, Ta Prohm.

Afternoon and Evening

You will have two options for the afternoon; for the more adventurous, you could opt to go quad biking, or you could choose to take a scenic 40 minute bike ride to the beautiful Bak Kheng Hill—the choice is yours! In the evening, you could opt to have dinner with us (we are very fun, really!) or you could watch a local circus performance.


“Wonderful. A pleasant experience.”

Firstly, our guide ‘Bo’ (sorry if spelt wrong) was excellent. A happy and engaging chap kept us informed and to some extent entertained for the four or so hours.

The bike tour itself is easy going – some Tarmac road and some bumpy dirt roads, some sandy paths. You can go at the pace that you are happy with as Bo is accommodating. There are regular stops for water too and at the market opportunities to try some local food and fruits – these are all paid for within the tour price.

There were only one other in the group which made it good for Bo to interact and guide us. Photo oppertunity were plentiful as with being on bikes you could stop when you wanted, like sunsets.
