A growing city, Phnom Penh hasn’t forgotten its humble roots. Surrounding the capital is a vast and seemingly untouched natural and rural landscape. That area is the venue for your day of biking. Sounds enticing, doesn’t it? After exploring all the must-see’s in the city, this is a great way to truly discover the character and atmosphere of Phnom Penh. And it doesn’t hurt that you’re pedaling and giving your body a bit of a work out too, isn’t it?
You can’t help but be fascinated with Phnom Penh’s potential. You are seeing a city on the rise before your very eyes. Modern buildings are starting to crop up and existing harmoniously with more traditional sites such as the Royal Palace, the Silver Pagoda and Wat Phnom temple. These sites can not escape your attention – you must go see them!
After your orientation of the city, bike around it to get a clear picture of what Phnom Penh is really like. You’ll catch a ferry and dock at the other side of the Tonle Sap. From here, cycle away! Pedal along the banks of the river/lake and learn more about the Cham communities that live here. You’ll also stop to see the country’s youth at study in a local school. Sure brings back those old memories back in the days, doesn’t it?
Afterwards, learn a bit about the area’s craft as you bike your way to a silk weaving house to see how silk scarves are produced. Perhaps you can try your hand at it as well? Or maybe bring one or two back as a souvenir. Continue along small trails to your rest up point, an overgrown resort project. Your trip back to the pier will take a different route than which you came. That’s great and a double dose of eye opening experiences.
This 20 kilometer cycling tour, as mentioned before is a great compliment to a Phnom Penh experience. Contact us on how you can combine tours like these or for any question about Cambodia that you may need clarification on.
