Wake up to incredible sunrise views of Angkor Wat silhouetted against the skyline. This unforgettable morning cycle guides you through the back trails among the ruins of the Angkor Kingdom. With an early start, you'll join a small group of early risers eager to see the sunrise. Once they've returned to bed, you'll have the rest of the morning to explore the Angkor temples in the soft dawn light and, most welcomingly, without the tourist crowds. Follow your guide on a walking tour of Angkor Wat before settling down for a peaceful breakfast just outside the temple grounds. Once you're revitalized, the rest of the day will be spent riding the back trails through ruins and forests, with stops at both iconic and lesser-known temples including Bayon and Ta Prom. You'll take lunch by a small reservoir then as the day heats up, you'll drive back to town and your hotel.
Not Inclusive Of:
I have been to Angkor Wat more than once. But nothing beats exploring the temples on the bike, as we see the villages and lives of the people around the Angkor area. It brings life to the UNESCO monument, besides the hype over the iconic scene of TombRaider at Ta Prohmn temple. The route was moderately difficult but manageable for a not-so-skilled cyclist. Our guide Sammy was excellent and knowledgeable, taking care of our group's safety while bringing us through an adventurous trail. Not forgetting the delightful breakfast after sunrise, fruit platter after a long trail and lunch at the end of the session:)
great way to see the temples. visit some non tourist hot spots. great guide and pace for the entire length of the journey
The tour guide was very nice and welcoming. He was very knowledgeable. I enjoyed walking through the temples with the tour guide as he explained and showed us different parts of the temple. The bike riding was really fun. It was a super hot day but it was worth it. We rode our bikes in the forest and near the water to the different temples. We also got breakfast and lunch. Lunch was amazing. 5 different dishes. Overall, I really enjoyed my experience with grasshopper tours. I would definitely do this again.
Very organised (Grasshopper Adventures), good food options, knowledgeable guide, lovely to cycle through quiet jungle paths and villages as well as see three highly impressive temples. 18km cycle was mostly flat but felt like quite an achievement for someone who hasn't cycled for years! Harder work than expected from the description.
Amazing experience, the cycling route takes you off the beaten path and you can see the more tranquil side of the Angkor Wat archaeological park. The guides were very attentive and gave good introductions to the temples. Only wish the tour was a little longer and could see more of the park!
