Manager tip - Miles - Tour Angkor - Cambodia - Cycling - Siem Reap

From tour buses to tuk-tuks, there are many ways to visit Cambodia’s treasured Angkor Wat temple complex, but if you’re looking for a truly intimate experience immersed in the beauty of Mother Nature, nothing will bring you closer to your goal than visiting Angkor by bicycle.

More than two million foreigners visit Angkor Wat every year and while that’s great for Cambodia’s tourism industry, the presence of so many sightseers and tour groups can sometimes take the enchantment out of this special occasion.

But from the seat of a bicycle it’s a different story. We enter the temple complex by way of a small scenic trail leaving behind the tour buses, taxi rides and throngs of tourists. The bike route then wends its way through picturesque paddy fields and quaint little villages, dodging the occasional untethered cow, while encountering locals and their children eager to welcome you.

Cycling to Angkor is really a no-brainer. Not only is it one of the best forms of exercise, from start to finish, we stick to the lesser-known trails and paths that keep you away from the frenzied crowds and focus purely on the beauty of your surroundings.

And from June until January, when you are more likely to be traveling here, Angkor Wat’s ancient monuments are surrounded by an endless sea of emerald green rice fields, sugar palm trees and lush tropical forest, ensuring that nature is at its best.

What’s more, Khiri Travel Cambodia offers two-wheel temple tours during the most photogenic times of the day – at sunrise and in the twilight hours.
