Cycling has to be the best way to see the temples complexes of Angkor, nothing can compare to cycling through a thousand years of Khmer history. Our Cambodian temple guide will ensure that full explanations are given on all that you will see. A remarkable facet of Angkor unlike many historical sites is that it is a hive of activity as there are dozens of farming communities dotted around this area, a chance to see ordinary Cambodian people going about their everyday life. This is a chance to se rural Cambodian life amongst a rich history.
