What You Can Expect

Bike tour in Siem Reap countryside

West Baray Picnic Spot

Receive a morning pickup from your Siem Reap hotel to start your two-wheel adventure in the Cambodian countryside. Once you’re fitted with a bike and helmet, you’ll proceed along the area’s less-crowded dirt roads toward West Baray Reservoir.

Pedal along the perimeter of this body of water, learning about its origins as you ride. The site was excavated by hand to help provide an additional irrigation source for the farm fields surrounding Angkor. Continue your cycling trip as you pass through the local villages of Kuok Thnuot, Phum Pem, and Kuok Duong.

These Cambodian towns will give you new insight into daily lives for the country’s local villages. You’ll also be able to check out the local market and interact with residents. Those looking for a more immersive experience can even participate in community service efforts at a primary school located on the northern dam of the reservoir.

Take a break after your village visits for a picnic lunch of Khmer cuisine served along the edge of the reservoir. If you feel like cooling off, you’re welcome to jump in for a swim. Continue your ride by heading to the Krabei Real villages, where you’ll observe the locals as they plant and harvest their rice and vegetable crops. Depending on time, you may also get to explore the local pagodas. You’ll return to your hotel in the late afternoon.
