What to bring:
Our guide Hang is superb! Because we have not cycle for a while we were fearful but Hang was very emphatic and allay our fear. The ride was wonderful we get to experience a bit of the Khmer life - drink coffee at the local shop, visit the market which is quite an experience. Overall a very enjoyable time inspite the heat. Highly recommend this to folks who wants more than Angkor wat.
This day tour turned out to be the perfect end to a wonderful holiday in Siem Reap. The bicycle ride at the start was simply great and the interaction with the local people was extremely heartwarming. Our guide was very informative and passionate.
While Angkor Wat is the main attraction in Siem Reap, this trip is well worth the time. We had an extremely educational and memorable experience that we will never forget. The guides were excellent: friendly, informed, and very passionate about their country and their work. The first half of the day is spent on a bike tour through a rural Cambodian village. As others have mentioned, come prepared with school supplies, small toys, or books for the children you'll meet in the village if you can. The children seem very excited to see you and will be eager to interact and try to speak English with you.
