This 9-day-trip starts in and around Siem Reap. We will ease into the trip on Day 1 and 2 by acclimatizing and getting to know the bikes (if necessary).
On Day 1 we will visit the famous temples of Angkor Wat and Bayon, drive around the bustling town of Siem Reap and enjoy the local Khmer cuisine.
The next day we will set off to Phnom Kulen National Park, which has one of the largest waterfalls in South East Asia. Here we will also encounter our first mountainous roads. In the afternoon we will drive back to Siem Reap via some lesser known temples. The total distance this day will be around 120km.
On Day 3 we will cover over 300 km on brand new roads through the Northern Cambodia countryside with its charming villages and beautiful vistas. After 200km we will cross the mighty Mekong and travel south parallel to the river to the old French colonial town of Kratie.
After breakfast the next day, we will embark on a river tour to see the endangered Irawaddy dolphins. After the river tour we get back on the bikes and make our way to Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia, driving south through the Mekong Delta. Total driving distance that day is about 230 km. In the late afternoon/evening there's time to explore the King's Palace and the never sleeping streets of Phnom Penh.
On Day 5 we start with a short bike trip to the infamous Killing Fields; impressive, yet disturbing, but essential to get a full sense of Cambodia. From there we will continue our journey south towards Bokor National Park, another UNESCO World Heritage site. We'll ride about 185 km this day.
The next day we will drive about 125 km along the coast on our way to beautiful white beaches and relaxation. Day 7 will be a rest day, with a variety of activities that can be undertaken: visit the island, diving, snorkeling, fishing etc.
After this well-deserved rest we will set off on our longest stretch of driving yet, 430 km. Our destination is Battambang, the historical trade center of Cambodia and the fourth biggest city of Cambodia. We will pass through a natural reserve park and the roads are relatively good. The next morning you have the option to go and see one of the following attractions in Battambang: The Killing Cave or the temples (same era as Angkor Wat). After that we will start the 170km drive back to Siem Reap and this is where the trip ends.
