US$45.00
Date

Overview
Enjoy a morning bicycle ride on quiet back roads of the Silk Islands near Phnom Penh. With a guide, you'll visit local communities and ride past farmland to observe rural village life in the Cambodian countryside, only a short distance from the capital city. Lunch is included.
Highlights
  • Bike tour: Explore off the tourist trail
  • Views of Phnom Penh as you cruise across the Mekong River
  • Cambodian lunch at a local restaurant
  • Escape the city for a day in the countryside
What to Expect
Meet your guide in central Phnom Penh and cycle to the Mekong riverside to catch the ferry to the islands. Gaze out over the city from the water as you cruise out to the islands, then follow your guide on a scenic bike ride around the rural villages, pagodas, fruit orchards, and handicrafts workshops. Learn why the area is nicknamed the “Silk Islands,” discovering the traditional silk-weaving techniques during a visit to local workshop, and perhaps purchase some hand-woven souvenirs. After a delicious Cambodian-style lunch at a restaurant on the islands, sail back to Phnom Penh, where your tour ends back in the city center.

The ride was about 25 kms and generally, not hilly. The only "hills" were getting on and off the two ferries. I am an experienced road bike rider aged 68 years old and I had no problems. It was a great morning ride.
