The Angkor Wat is the most important site in Cambodia and what better way to explore it than with a full-day bike tour? Experienced bikers are treated to a challenging trail across the jungles and around the temple’s complex. You also get to explore the sites themselves!
After our transport picks you up from the hotel, the trip begins with a scenic but peaceful route away from the crowds. From there, your guides will lead you to the area behind the Angkor Wat and allow you to take in the full sight of the gigantic temple complex. You’ll get to explore this architectural wonder and see many points of interest, among them is the so-called “Death Gate” which was famous for holding out the invaders during the times of the ancient Angkorian Empire. Along the way, you also get to interact with the locals to learn more about the indigenous Khmer culture. The last stop is the Ta Prohm, also known as the Jungle Temple and the now known as the location where the 2001 movie “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider” was filmed.

Seeing the Ta Prohm made me remember that Tomb Raider movie. It was one thing to see it on screen, but actually being here was even better!
This was arguably one of the longest bike tours that my friends and I have taken. Still, I have to say it’s one of the most scenic areas too! Definitely a must-see!
