Join us on a full-day, off the beaten track bicycle tour of Angkor, and get to know the local lives that revolve around this magnificent complex! Besides biking to the main temples of Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom, and Ta Prohm, you will also have the opportunity to interact with the local community, join a cooking class, and sample local Khmer cuisine!
We will begin our tour with an easy-paced 30-minute cycle through the jungle to reach Angkor Wat (don’t worry; it’s not as daunting as it sounds!) This is a route that many do not take, so you can be assured of a peaceful and relaxing ride away from the crowds. Your guides will lead you to the back of Angkor Wat, where you will be able to take in the architectural wonder of this UNESCO world heritage temple complex.
Your next stop is Bayon temple, another major complex built by King Jayavarman VII. Be charmed by the enigmatic face-towers as your guide tells you more about the history and construction of this unique ancient city.
Next up: “Death Gate.” Not as scary as it sounds, but rather, a very significant part of Angkor’s temple complex that kept out many enemies and intruders!
Hungry? We thought so! Leading you away from the temple complexes, your guides will now lead you to a local village where enable you to take a simple Khmer local cuisine! Get to know the friendly locals and learn more about their lives, which revolve around the temple complex of Angkor Wat.
After lunch, your guides will lead you to the Jungle Temple of Taprom, where ''Tomb Raider'' was filmed. Observe the architectural intricacies of this unique temple. Marvel at the roots growing around, within, and through this archaic site.
