Detailed Itinerary

Day 1: Phnom Penh 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. Takeo-Phnom penh.PNG

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. Kep-Takeo(Chhuk).PNG

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 the stunning bay and forest before descending to the base by bike or shuttle.

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.

Transfer to Sihanoukville for your onward travel to Koh Rong Island or fly to Siem Reap.

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

Weather

Cambodia is a year-round cycling destination on account of its pleasant tropical climate. April and May can be hot, but for the rest of the year, the temperature hovers around 30°C. There is moderate rainfall from May to early November but it settles soon, leaving the weather cool and the countryside lush. November to February is the best time for cycling in South Vietnam with warm weather, clear blue skies, and a light ocean breeze blowing in from the Pacific.

Visa

Cambodia has three international gateways for arrival by air – Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, and Sihanoukville – and a large number of land borders with neighboring Thailand, Vietnam, and Laos. Formalities at Cambodia’s international airports are generally smooth.

Travelers can get a Cambodia visa upon arrival at the airport with a valid passport for 6 months and no longer need to have a pre-arrival COVID-19 test, present a full COVID-19 vaccination card/certificate, or a passenger's health declaration form on arrival in Cambodia. Remote electronic temperature-checking systems remain at the entry and exit gates for Immigration officers to check and advise passengers who may have COVID-19 symptoms.
