Detailed Tour Itinerary
Day 1: Siem Reap
Upon arrival at the airport in Siem Reap you will be met by a ‘See Asia Differently’ representative and transferred to your hotel, where you have the afternoon to relax and enjoy the city as you wish.
Overnight in Siem Reap (Meals: _/_/_)
Day 2: Siem Reap (Temple Tour)
The Angkor temples are a magnificent sight! While the Cambodian temples aren’t in short supply, the Angkor temples are in a league of their own. Angkor Wat temple is by far the most famous and often compared to sites, such as Machu Picchu (Peru) and Petra (Jordan). Your Cambodian tour guide will be on hand to guide you through these wonderful Angkor temples, which should be on everyone’s bucket list.
Overnight in Siem Reap (Meals: B/_/_)
Day 3: Siem Reap to Battambang
You will leave Siem Reap on a mixture of red graded dirt roads and a sandy single track that cut through the surrounding countryside. You will cut across the North of the Tonle Sap on some fairly chopped up trails. There will be some fast riding on the open flood plains in parts, but some serious ruts, so you have to be careful. Then, a series of rice fields and the single track will take you to Kamping Poy, a Khmer Rouge era dam, before your stop for the night at a nice hotel with a pool.
Overnight in Battambang (Meals: B/_/_)
Day 4: Battambang to O Soum
Riding today will be a mixture of dirt roads and a windy single track in the morning, and then picturesque, dirt roads with several steep climbs as you head into the Cardamoms. The route that used to be taken has been recently graded, but don’t worry as there is a new forest section with lots of rocks, ruts and roots to keep you entertained. You will be staying in the mountain village of O Soum in a local guesthouse.
Overnight in O Soum (Meals: B/_/_)
Day 5: O Soum to Koh Kong
Today you jump on the graded Chinese built dirt road that links the new hydropower dams. The old route was so mashed up that only a few groups could make it, and since then most tour groups use the Chinese road. There will be some amazing views and the riding is still entertaining. If you lose your concentration for a second, you’ll be down a gulley! There are a couple of sections that are a bit more chopped up with some nice climbs/descents. Then, there are a couple of options: either more graded roads or more technical riding. This extension should bring you in to Koh Kong around 4pm. A nice hotel overlooking the estuary near the Thai border will be your accommodation for the night.
Overnight in Koh Kong (Meals: B/_/_)
Day 6: Koh Kong (Free Day)
After three days riding you will need a little R&R, as well as the bikes will need some work on them, while you can just relax or check out some of the nearby waterfalls and rapids. You can either chill on the riverside at a comfy restaurant or you can explore the town yourself. You can also cross the estuary and go to the beach for a swim near Thailand, where there is also a casino, if you want to try your luck.
Overnight in Koh Kong (Meals: B/_/_)
Day 7: Koh Kong to Chipat
If you want extreme, we have several technical climbs for you: lots of dodgy bridges, slippery single tracks and river crossings. This is probably one of the best trails through the Cardamons. You will be staying in a charming rural village homestay in the village of Chipat, which is the gateway to the Aural National Park. There are rapids nearby, where you can end the day with a nice refreshing swim.
Overnight in Chipat (Meals: B/_/_)
Day 8: Chipat to Sihanoukville
Today is an awesome ride on loads of deep sandy single tracks, rocky climbs, rutted descents, river crossings and more. You should arrive in Srae Ambel town in the afternoon, after which you can follow the coast into Sihanoukville. If there is time, you can stop at the Kaal Chay waterfall, where you can swim and freshen up. Then, an easy ride into the coastal town of Sihanoukville, where the tour ends. Sunset and beers on the beach to round off the perfect trip.
Overnight in Sihanoukville (Meals: B/_/_)
