1Day Cambodia’s Countryside Cycling Tour

Description

On this Cambodia bicycle tour, we will cycle through rice paddy fields, pass villages and lively markets, people working on their land, see and experience the people's daily life near Battambang. There can be more stops at places of interest, depending on your riding pace and interest. This leisurely ride is approximately 35km on flat roads (some paved and some on a dirt road).

On this cycling tour, you will enjoy a typical Cambodian lunch at a local family's house, learn about the process of making the traditional Cambodian products and the monastic life of a young Cambodian monk. This tour is designed to give you a deeper understanding of Cambodian livelihood. You will learn and meet local people directly by having our student guide host and translate for you. Besides learning about the traditional ways of living, it will also give you insight into farming procedures. We will share with you conventional farming methods and the growing seasons in Cambodia.

Along with viewing the production of and sampling traditional Cambodian products, you will also get to know more about the history of Battambang and the period of the Pol Pot regime. At the end of this day, you will have a good insight into the daily life of Cambodia's countryside and traditional livelihoods. An impression, I hope, will last!

This tour started in 2010 in collaboration with a social enterprise and local college students to provide vocational training to local college students while also educating tourists about everyday life in Cambodia. With this tour, you directly contribute to the local community in a sustainable, environmentally friendly way that facilitates cross-cultural communication between local communities and travelers.

Reviews

I did the full-day countryside cycling tour and it was one of the best things I’ve ever done. My guides, Phalla and Pum were excellent! I was a bit worried about doing a full-day cycling tour on a hot day, but the pace was perfect and the cycling was very enjoyable rather than too tiring. We had lots of opportunities to stop and learn about Battambang and the lives of the people in the villages we visited, as well as eat many different local foods. I have quite specific dietary requirements and these were taken care of without any hassle. Cycling through the countryside was an experience of feeling as though time did not exist, it was brilliant. Thank you so much to Phalla and Pum for such a wonderful day!
