Tour Itinerary

 Stop 1: Angkor’s Sunrise

Catch the best light of day at Angkor Wat—the sunrise! This is an amazing photographic opportunity where you will be able to move around the temple complex to find the best spot to view and photograph the sun rising over Angkor’s three towers. After sunrise, your guide will give you an introduction to Angkor, where you will learn more about Cambodia’s unique history.

 Stop 2: Angkor Thom

Before heading towards our next stop—Angkor Thom—you will have the option of picking up some local snacks, based on your guide’s recommendations. For those needing a shot of caffeine, you are more than welcome to stop for local Khmer coffee! You will then cycle to Angkor Thom with your guide, who will introduce you to the unique architecture of this ancient Buddhist temple.

Stop 3: Local Lives, Local Cuisine

Hungry? We thought so! Leading you away from the temple complexes, your guides will now lead you to a local village where you will be able to take a simple Khmer cooking class and sample local cuisine! Get to know the friendly locals and learn more about their lives, which revolve around the temple complex of Angkor Wat.

 Stop 4: Off Road at the Village

After Angkor Thom, you will embark on some off-road cycling, biking along hidden dirt roads of local villages. Get to know the locals and friendly children who live around the ancient temples, and find out more about their everyday lives. Your tour comes to an end when we head back to town, just in time for lunch!

Stop 5: Mysterious Temple

After lunch, off we go again! Your guides will lead you to Ta Prohm—the Jungle Temple. While this temple is now more popularly known as the site “where Tomb Raider was filmed,” look carefully around you and observe the architectural intricacies of this unique temple. Marvel at the roots growing around, within, and through this archaic site.


“Solid Experience”

We had a group of 11 with three guides. Bo, Sun, and Wat did a great job of managing a large group and making sure everyone was safe on the road. At the temples, Sun guided us through the temples and educated us on the significance of the art, design, and history of Cambodia. They also provided water and bananas for in between stops. This was a lovely experience. Seeing the Cambodian countryside in the morning light was a refreshing break for our feet. The ride to the temples is a bit long so if you do not feel comfortable on a bike, this might not be for you.

Your Guides

All tours are led by local, English-speaking student guides who love sharing about the country they know and love. Get to know our guides, and form long lasting friendships with them!
