Tour Itinerary

 Stop 1: The Majestic Temple

We will begin our tour with an easy-paced 30 minute cycle through the jungle to reach Angkor Wat (don’t worry; it’s not as daunting as it sounds!) This is a route many do not take, so you can be assured of a peaceful and relaxing ride away from the crowds. Your guides will lead you to the back of Angkor Wat, where you will be able to take in the architectural wonder of this magnificent complex.

 Stop 2: Angkor Thom

Your next stop is Angkor Thom, another major complex built by King Jayavarman VII. Be charmed by the enigmatic face-towers as your guide tells you more about the history and construction of this unique ancient city.

 Stop 3: Death Gate

Next up: “Death Gate.” Not as scary as it sounds, but rather, a very significant part of Angkor’s temple complex that kept out many enemies and intruders!

 Stop 4: 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 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.


“Off the beaten path”

The enquiries I had and done over fb messaging were answered promptly, well assured and patiently. Borith is helpful,
Friendly and totally hilarious.

My Ma hadn’t ridden on a bicycle for long distance for 4 decades so we emphasized that her safety would be a priority, especially when we had to share the foreign roads with tuktuks, vans, cars, bikes and coaches. And our bicycle guide, Sopheap, took that seriously, watching out for her and taking good care while leading our pack of 3. Even the templeguide, Sopheak, ended up riding next to Ma like a bodyguard in traffic.

We rode through beautiful forest, sheltered from the sun. We toured the major temples listening to Sopheak. We visited rural villages and gave out little gift packs we brought… We were slow and caused some delay in competing the itinerary. But our guides remained very patient with us. And for that, we are extremely thankful.

Thank you, Butterfly Tours. For a different kind of experience in a holiday. Thank you for the adventure. And thank you the most, for your kindness, friendliness and patience.
