ANGKOR EXPLORER 2 DAYS / 1 NIGHT
The trip will start from the hotel, where the mountain bikes have been prepared. Our cycling guide will brief on the tour. Biking around Angkor is the best way to explore the temple complex. Starting to explore Angkor complex on the shady road with tree lines. Most recently potholes have been eliminated. There are one temple in almost every Km, so it won't be boring and it is worth to stop and take photo. Our guide can also take you to explore back road cycling on the gate of Angkor Thom. It is such a wonderful road for cycling, quiet and peaceful.
Day 1: Small Circuit (25km)
Continue the cycling through small circuit passing Ta Keo temple, Chao Say Tevoda, Tommanon before reaching to Angkor Thom city. There you will see, Terrace of Leper King, Terrace of Elephant, Baphoun, Phimean Akas. Stop at Bayon temple and start the visit (45 minutes-1 hour). Angkor Thom built by Cambodia's great king, Jayavarman VII. An eight-meter high wall encloses this ten square kilometre city, which is encircled by a moat. The famous-Bayon, in the geographical heart of Angkor Thom, is a remarkable 54 tower temple. Initially the temple appears to be a shapeless mass of grey and brown stone, but it is only as you get closer that you realize every tower has the carved face of Avalokiteshvara on it. After the visit, cycle to Angkor Wat to finish the small circuit. Stop at South Gate of Angkor Thom for taking photo.
Access via a causeway over the moat that are flanked by statues of Gods on the left and devils on the right. Then visit the magnificent 12th century Angkor Wat. It is visually, architecturally and artistically breathtaking. Angkor Wat is a massive three-tiered pyramid crowned by five beehive-like towers rising 65 meters from ground level. Suryavarman II constructed Angkor Wat in the form of massive 'temple mountain' dedicated to the Hindu god, Vishnu.
Day 2: Rolous Group & Tonle Sap (50km)
This road is good for cycling as to avoid the busy traffic. After cycling 8km, turn right across the bridge to the main road as there is no further access on the small road.

Consider the first time to Cambodia. It is amazing and eye opener for us on this trip. Our request for a supporting vehicle because of my daughter and also we just book for 2 days cycling and we were provided a supporting vehicle along with us. Excellent cycling guide, helpful, understanding cycling team and support driver.
The 2 days trip covers different routes and destinations. In addition to seeing some of the temples in Siem Reap, we were given an excellent tour on the historical facts, the culture, boat ride at the lake and surely not forgetting the visit to one of the home in the village where we carried out some community work with the cycling team.
Our appreciation to the cycling team and effort for providing an unforgettable and memorable trip for us.

The two days were great. So overall it was a great few days and great experience. I loved the Floating Villages, that was awesome. Second day was great too. The two places you chose for lunch both days were great!!! I liked the routes because they were different, one in the countryside, water, the other temples. Once again, the guide was great guy and terrific guide. I would like to come back to Cambodia at sometime.
