The Khmer Empire Explorer by Bike tour starts in Ubon Ratchatani and ends in Siem Reap. The Khmer Empire Explorer by Bike is a bicycle tour that takes days taking you from Ubon Ratchatani to Siem Reap and through other destinations in Asia.

This unique multi country bicycle tour traces some of the far reaches of the Khmer Empire while also following the Mekong River from Thailand, through Southern Laos and into Cambodia, providing a perfect setting to experience the cultural heritage and scenic highlights of these three countries.

Our bike tour begins in Thailand but we quickly cross into Laos and first head up to the Bolaven Plateau, the coffee growing area of Laos, before heading south, where we see our first Khmer Hindu temple complex, Wat Phu. This temple is unique in that elements were bathed in water from a mountain spring. Heading further south we go island hopping and observe the daily lives of the farmers in the paddy fields and the fishermen on the Mekong River. We spend some time dolphin spotting and relaxing on an island in the middle of the Mekong before crossing into Cambodia.

After one more night on the Mekong we head to Preah Vihear, arguably the Khmer Hindu temple which has the most spectacular setting of all the temples built during the six-centuries-long Khmer Empire. Next we wind our way to Siem Reap, stopping en route to see the unique pyramid temple at the ancient capital of Koh Ker. Then it's time to explore by bike the Khmer Empire’s greatest legacy, the amazing Angkor complex which bears testimony to the immense power and wealth, as well as the variety of belief systems that the empire patronised over time - Hinduism, Mahayana Buddhism, and Theravada Buddhism.This Southeast Asia bike tour offers a glimpse of Thailand and the best of two countries by bike: Cambodia and Laos.

“January was an excellent time to explore this area as the temperature was consistently around 30c. We had awesome local guides and drivers for each country. The terrain was a variety of tarmac, sand and trails through the countryside. The combination of biking, visiting sites and eating local food was a great way to explore these countries. We were also pleased with the variety of accommodation.

This was our fourth SpiceRoads tour. We appreciate the level of professionalism all staff display as well as the awesome planning that goes into all the trips to ensure the clients safety and enjoyment.”
