Countryside & Lake Southside of Siem Reap

Description

Discover colorful traditional Khmer culture with the guidance of a true local. I will reveal the reasons and stories behind our beliefs and what they mean to me personally. If you are not a very fit or athletic person, do not worry because the bike ride is adjusted to suit every ability level. This is a fantastic way of seeing the beautiful countryside outside of the hustle and bustle of Siem Reap. It's an excellent opportunity to learn about rural life in Cambodia. Pass by the local children going to school, families taking care of each other, and farmers feeding the animals (mostly pigs, cows, and buffalo).

I will pick you up at your hotel lobby and drop you back at the hotel when we are done. During our day trip, I will open your eyes to how the locals trade and do business in the local market. As well as visiting Arthvear pagoda, an ancient pagoda placed in the idyllic countryside, where you can see how the monks go about their day-to-day lives. Take a moment to breathe in the fresh country air and relax like the locals with a refreshing cool water or soft drink.

After our break, we shall continue to the mountain close to Tonle Sap Lake, exploring the Cambodian floating houses, stilt houses installed as impermanent homes. Cycling through a small path, we will meet local craftsmen and women making handmade products, weaving baskets out of water hyacinth to help orphans in their community.

Finally, we will cross the lotus flower fields near Tonle Sap Lake and observe the lotus farm to see some products from the lotus plant. Then we will cycle back to the Siem Reap town through the views of villages.
