Cycling may be a relatively new way to get around the expansive capital city, but travelers to Cambodia know one of the best ways to see the sights is on two wheels. Spend an early morning riding along the Mekong River, where cyclists can bring their bikes aboard a local boat for a sunrise cruise. A ride through Phnom Penh towards Kompong Cham, provides scenic landscapes of traditional houses and local villages.
An 18-kilometer trip from Phnom Penh to the Silk islands takes bikers over quiet dirt roads and through traditional fishing villages. Cyclists pass through orchards and rice farms while taking in scenic views of the Mekong River. Riders can break for pagoda visits and silk weaving factory tours, too.
More experienced riders can enjoy the day-long ride between Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. After winding through the bustling streets of Cambodia’s capital city, cyclists can cruise along country roads on their way to one of the country’s most frequented travel destinations.
