Itinerary

DAY 1Saigon to Ta KeoL,D50km / 30mi*cycling

Day 1: Saigon to Ta Keo

Our guide meets you at your hotel in Phnom Penh at about 08:00hrs.

Get up early and start with a shuttle transfer to Killing Fields. An essential on the itinerary due to the historic hook and for understanding the country better, we walk through the killing fields. Experience the painful story of a country that leads to the death of 2 million Cambodian people between 1974-1979. A short shuttle transfer from here brings us to Angkor era Ta Prohm temple. Take a quick tour of the temple and get ready for a ride towards Phnom Chiso Temple, situated on the top of a hill with 400 steps to climb up. Continue riding towards Takeo past some amazing lake scenery surrounded by paddy fields and lotus farms. Ta Keo is a small town situated amidst beautiful lakes. Enjoy the rest of the evening walking around the town.

DAY 2KepB,L,D50km / 30mi*cycling

Day 2: Kep

We gradually amp up the tempo by picking up on the kilometers. Today, it’s a long ride to Kep and we end the ride with a short transfer. The topography that will be forever etched in your mind is that of a sprawling countryside of fields, palm trees, and lotus farms. We ride slowly, taking pictures along the way and taking in the stunning vistas.

Kep’s seaside front is the perfect place for weary legs to feel rejuvenated. Earthy colours and breezy wind make for the perfect ambiance to unwind.

DAY 3KampotB,L,D60km / 36mi*cycling

Day 3: Kampot

Another stretch of riverside villages and exquisite countryside awaits us today. You can see the bright green pepper vines crawling up along tree trunks. Visit a stunning cave along the way and later ride to the quaint riverside town of Kampot. After lunch at a beautiful riverside restaurant, step out to discover local life at Kampot. Enough anecdotes and local street food flows to keep us engaged.

DAY 4Koh Rong IslandB40km / 24mi* or 28km/ 18mi*cycling

Day 4: Koh Rong Island

Today you can plan your own day.

Take the winding roads and climb the Bokor mountain today. Admire the views of stunning bay and forest before descending to the base by bike or shuttle. Transfer to Sihanoukville for your onward travel to Koh Rong Island or fly to Siem Reap.

If you want to avoid hills then you can also transfer to Sihanoukville airport where we’ll hit the bikes and cycle to the beach through pleasant little fishing villages with colorful boats bobbing in the gentle swell. We ride over a hill and on the hard-packed beach sands at one point as we near Ores Beach. A low hill or two make for a last-day challenge. We break for lunch and then take and boat to Koh Rong Island. Have a chat with your guide on the same during the tour.

Our crew will depart to Phnom Penh after dropping you at the airport or nearby restaurant around noon time. You may need to make your way to the airport on your own.

Alternatively, you can also depart to Phnom Penh in our vehicle.

Note: Please do let us know about your onward travel plans at the time of your booking so that we can make necessary arrangements for your departure.
