Cambodia is an amazing country to cycle across. From the chaos of Phnom Penh to the calm of the countryside, Cambodia is easy to fall in love with.

The days are long, the country is hot and the people are super friendly. From the constant and random “Hello!!” from the children on the roadsides to conversations with the truly selfless and unsung heroes running community development programmes — travelling Cambodia by bike is an incredible adventure!

We cycle from Siem Reap and finish in Kampot (11 days) before taking you back to Phnom Penh. The pace of all our tours is relaxed and casual. There’s always time to stop for a photo, and we rarely cycle more than 2 days in a row. When the journey is just as good as the destination, there’s no need to rush.

Monuments and museums can teach you about the country's history. Social Cycles and our networks of NGO partners can teach you about its present and what the future holds.

Take experiential travel to new depths. This is so much more than just a holiday!
Hotel
Upon your arrival at the Siem Reap airport, you'll be transferred to your hotel at the heart of the city. Take the rest of the day to explore the cosmopolitan that has seen a flurry of new development and challenges in recent years due to the growing tourism industry.

In the evening, meet for a welcome dinner at one of Siem Reap's best restaurants, Marum. The restaurant is a part of Friends International social enterprise projects and provides vocational training for the city's marginalized youth.
Meals
  • Dinner
Hotel
Hit your bikes before the break of dawn—at 4:30 am—to witness the spectacular sunrise over Angkor Wat. The majesty of the sight more than makes up for the early morning.

From here venture on to other, and arguably more impressive, temples in the area for the remainder of the morning.

In the early afternoon we’ll have the chance to visit our first NGO of the trip. We'll spend time with these inspirational people who have dedicated their lives to helping others. Hear their stories and understand what the real issues of the country straight from the people.
Meals
  • Breakfast
Hotel
Travelling across the wetlands and navigating our way around the Tonle Sap river is an unforgettable experience. The road slowly turns to single track as we get more and more inland. We'll bid farewell to our support van and venture into the rural and barren lands of Cambodia. Few villages exist out here, most of which support themselves through sustainable fishing.

As you enter Battambang, you'll be greeted by colonial-style streets and a bustling market with bric-a-brac abound.

Dine at another social enterprise-based restaurant, Jann Bai, which prepares food on par with anything in any Australian city.
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Hotel
After an early breakfast, make your way along the dusty red back roads of Battambang, via Banan temple. Reach the town of Pursat by early afternoon and jump straight into the hotel swimming pool and make full use of their massage spa.

Later in the day, tour the facilities of an amazing NGO, Sustainable Cambodia, and attend a full presentation by the executives and a tour of their facilities. Then learn about the project's work and the difference it makes firsthand.
Meals
  • Breakfast
Hotel
Start cycling 75 km out from Phnom Penh and ride all the way up to the front door of your hotel. The back roads introduce some of the most spectacular scenery in the region as we pass through villages settled around Tonle Sap lake. The ride includes great coffee stops, endless photo opportunities and a couple of ferry crossings.

The final 2 km to the city can be completed via the van as an option.

For dinner, it’s a feast of tarantula’s and silk works at the famous Romdeng restaurant, a social enterprise restaurant from the Friends International team.
Meals
  • Breakfast & Dinner
Hotel
We’ll start the day by meeting the incredible people at Friends International and learn about the wonderful work they do in the community. This is a great insight into real, everyday local issues from real, everyday local heroes.

From the office, we venture towards the Russian market and then to Tuol Sleng, also known as S-21 Genocide Museum. This devastating chapter of the Khmer Rouge and Cambodian history is emotionally challenging but strongly recommended.

There is some free time in the afternoon to process your day, whilst we’ll meet again for a local Khmer BBQ dinner.
Meals
  • Breakfast & Dinner
Hotel
Our first major cycling day takes us south of Phnom Penh to Chisaur Mountain Temple in rural Cambodia. It’s not really much of a mountain at 130 m, and the route is perfectly flat. We'll casually cycle through remote villages and waterways, via narrow dirt tracks.

After lunch at the Chisaur Temple we'll have plenty of time to explore these ancient ruins 200-years older than Angkor Wat.

Later, take the van down to the Cambodian coastal town of Kampot to enjoy the culinary delights on offer.
Meals
  • Breakfast
Hotel
Start the day with an (optional) mammoth Bokor Mountain Cycle Challenge! It’s 40 km to get to the top. The first 10 km is flat, then it just keeps going up and up and up!

If cycling uphill doesn’t rock your world, we can bring your bike in the van, and you can cycle down.

Whilst at the top, we can take some time to explore the French ghost town of Bokor Hill Station in Preah Monivong National Park.
Meals
  • Dinner
Hotel
In the morning, we’ll visit Chumkriel Language School (no children will be in attendance at the time of visiting). An inspirational human being, Mr Suthy set up the grassroots local school to provide children of the salt field community access to education.

In the afternoon, just sit and relax by the pool, wander through the market or just take some time for yourself. If you like, you can take a cruise down the river at sunset and watch the fireflies come to life.
Hotel
Today we cycle from Kampot to the famous regional pepper plantations for a short guided tour. Later, we'll cycle to the Kep crab market and take in the incredible sights and smells of this live culinary feast!

The afternoon ride takes us along the coast and through some single tracks via local fishing villages before we resurface at the Vietnam border. From here jump back in the van to be transferred to a Phnom Penh hotel for your last night.
All good things must come to an end. Enjoy your breakfast, squeeze in one more massage or just find a great cafe to watch the world go by before heading out.

What are customers saying about Bookmundi
Good to know
Payment

A deposit of 10% is required when booking this tour. The remaining balance will be charged 45 days prior departure. For any bookings within 45 days of departure, the full tour amount will be charged upon booking.

Travel Insurance

We advise to take out Travel Insurance to cover for any unforeseen circumstances. Bookmundi recommends World Nomads' travel insurance.

Other Practical InformationThe distances between one hotel to the next can be extensive so we have cherry picked the best part to cycle in between, but it may only be 40 to 60 km of the route. Each Social Cycles tour is fully supported so there is an opportunity for riders to take a rest in the van. Our goal is to show the beauty of travelling Cambodia and Vietnam by bicycle, and not to rack up thousands of kilometers. Therefore, our style is recreational and casual. We aim to cater to beginner and intermediate recreational cyclists, not professionals or Strava enthusiasts.
Cancellation10% Deposit payable upfront. Remaining balance payable 45 days prior to trip departure. Free cancellation up to 45 days prior departure. No refund applicable within 45 days of departure.
