Cycling among the ever-present mysterious charm of the ancient ruins of Angkor Wat, Angkor Thom and the Bayon is a great and pleasurable way to spend a day.

Alternatively, a nine day round trip from Siem Reap will provide a both a highly satisfying ride and a detailed exploration of the main features of the entire vast Angkor Complex, including the most famous areas around Angkor Wat, combined with the Rolous Group, the River of a Thousand Lingas, Beng Mealea, Koh Ker, Preah Vihear, and Preah Khan, while also enjoying the cycling through the countryside and other features of this remarkable area.

Another cycling route which includes Angkor within a broader 10 day cycle ride starts at Sihanoukville, exploring Ream National Park, before heading to Kampot, Kep, Phnom Penh, Kampong Cham, Kampong Thom, and finally Siem Reap and Angkor.

Cambodia’s close proximity to Thailand, Vietnam and Laos also make multi-country cycle rides an interesting way to see enjoy the sights of Cambodia in combination with the features of its neighbours.


The thirteen to fifteen day ride from the Mekong Delta in Vietnam, takes in the considerable charms of its waterborne culture before the short boat ride to Phnom Penh the cycle on to Siem Reap. Another variant extends this route into Thailand, which can also be reversed in direction, travelling from Bangkok.

Another way to enjoy Cambodia’s features is to combine it with a cycle of the lush forests and dramatic scenery of Laos.


An in-depth twenty day ride takes in the very best of both northern and southern Laotian destinations before delving into the countryside of northwestern Cambodia, such as Stung Treng, Kratie, Mondulkri, and Kampong Cham before arriving at Siem Reap and the cycling around the temples of Angkor.
