Short Break Cycle tour in Cambodia -Instead of traveling between Phnom Penh and Siem Reap in the shortest possible time, stretch it out and discover the west of the great lake, Oudong, and Kampong Chanang. This trip runs Phnom Penh to Siem Reap.We take our time to pedal through the charming countryside that lies west of the Tonle Sap lake. We visit the former capital of Oudong Mountain and eat our way through a truly Cambodian experience. We cycle the back trails, along rivers and old railway lines to Kampong Chanang, the home of Cambodian pottery and we take a paddle through the less visited floating villages. We visit the rural gem of Battambang and learn about village industry and the quirky, Bamboo Railway..
Day 1 :Cycle to Oudong 55km, Transfer to Kampong Chanang
8:00 Am Pick up from your hotel lobby and head straight out from Phnom Penh into the stunning landscapes of rice and coconut trees as we make our way to Oudong Mountain via Phnom Basset. We stop to enjoy fresh watermelon along the way as well as a range of other tasty local snacks. As the day wears on, we see a hill suddenly jut out of completely flat countryside and this is Oudong, a great place for a meal and a great place for a view of the plains. After lunch we take a drive up to Kampong Chanang, the home of Cambodian ceramic pottery and genuine floating villages.O/N in Kampong Chanang .
Biking Distance : 55 km
We start the day with a pedal around Kampong Chanang to see what village life in this area means. We’ll see the pottery villages from which, terracotta pots of all sizes are distributed throughout Cambodia. We visit an abandoned airfield from the Khmer Rouge times and we might even try out hand at some farm work, time permitting. We then take a drive to Battambang, a rural centre and home to some interesting french architecture. We take an afternoon ride to see some of these buildings and then take a ride on the famous Bamboo Train.O/N in Battambang .
As we wake on our third day, you will be wishing it not to end, but there is still time to learn about the village industries of Battambang. For this we meet up with a local university student who will show us around the villages just outside Battambang. The ride is on a lovely route along the river with lots of shade. We stop to see rice paper making, banana drying, rice wine and prakok production, as well as a stop at the best snack stop in all Cambodia, the kralanh shop. Here we try sticky rice with coconut and beans which is prepared in a bamboo tube. We return to town in the late morning and after lunch make our way to Siem Reap in the support vehicle. The tour concludes with a drop-off at your Siem Reap hotel by your own account .
