Full description
Begin your countryside biking adventure by meeting your local guide at the meeting point. From here, head over to the bike shop to pick out your bike. Once you're kitted out, set off on your tour. Pass by sweeping rice terraces and sprawling jungle and stop to take plenty of photos along the way. The itinerary for the day will vary slightly each time, depending on what's happening in the villages your tour visits. 

You may stop to watch seasonal activities such as rice or vegetable planting or harvesting, or have a go at palm leaf weaving. A stop at a family farm is essential though, where you'll have an opportunity to learn about the work they do and chat with the family about local life. Also, explore an area that was used by Angelina Jolie in a movie called ‘First They Killed My Father’ which recounts the terrors suffered by Loung Ung (a child at the time but now a respected author and human rights activist) at the hands of the brutal Khmer Rouge.

After a full morning of exploration on 2 wheels, you will have worked up quite an appetite so the next stop will be a lunch date with the Totung Thngai community, who have prepared a delicious and authentic meal. Finally, stop at the beautiful Aranh Rangsei Pagoda to learn about monk life and the temples. Then, leave your bike at the final stop and jump in a tuk-tuk back to your centrally located hotel. Before you go, don't forget to ask your guide for more tips on what else to see, do and eat during your stay in Siem Reap.
