Tour Itinerary

 Stop 1: Rice Farming

Our tour begins with a bike ride to the sprawling fields of paddy. Here, your guides will introduce you to the day-to-day routines of local farmers. Many of our guides will be able to give you an in depth insight into this agricultural activity, as they have worked in the fields with their parents from a young age

 Stop 2: Rattan Baskets

Next up, we will cycle to a home of a basket weaver. Learn more about this unique and intricate craft, which is traditionally passed down from parent to child.

 Stop 3: Local Market

Our third stop will be at a bustling local market, where you will be able to take in the sights and sounds of locals buying and selling produce. Discover local products not found anywhere else in the world!

 Stop 4: Local Lunch and Cooking Class

Anyone hungry yet? We bet you will be by now! Your guides will lead you to our lunch spot at a local village. Lunch will be prepared by locals, and if we arrive ahead of time, you will have the opportunity to help out in the preparation and pick up a few Cambodian cooking skills!

 Stop 5: Pagoda

After the market, we will head to a pagoda frequented by the local community. Here, your guide will tell you more about religion in Cambodia, as well as the cultural practices connected to it.

 Stop 6: Rice Wine

On our final stop, we will take you to a local rice wine distillery. Here, you will learn more about the processes involved in the making of rice wine as well as its use in holistic medication. And yes—if you’re wondering—you will also get to sample a taste!


Awesome & easy family ride in country side around Siem Reap

We went for the full day tour “Local Ways of Life” around Siem Reap with our family, from 9 years old younger daughter (they’ve small bikes) to grand father. It’s 99% off road, flat & easy ride with many stops to discover local life right next to busy Siem Reap, from very local market, khmer noddle maker, rice wine maker, piggybank maker, active recent pagoda… and lunch @ local house. Great guide (Arh) speaking very good English.
