The trip can be started in Phnom Penh or Siem Reap, where the mountain bikes have been prepared. Our cycling guide will brief on the tour. Getting around and out of Phnom Penh is a busy traffic. So we might transfer a little bit if the traffic is worse. Most of the road surface is good with tarmac. Then we take the boat crossing Tonle Sap lake, which is best from July to February.
