Experience an unforgettable morning riding the back trails among the ruins of the Angkor Kingdom. This trip runs outside Siem Reap.
See Angkor temples in the soft light of the morning and ride the hidden trails to avoid the crowds.
As the roosters begin to crow, you will be out at the most important religious monument in Cambodia, watching the sun rise over the triple towers of Angkor Wat. Even in the wet season, this is a magical time to see Angkor. As the crowds thin, take an unforgettable walk through the temple, where the soft light and cool temperatures present Angkor at its best. A short pedal away a delicious breakfast spread awaits. After breakfast we ride around the hidden trails of the Angkor complex to visit some of the best kept secrets and the iconic temples of the Bayon, Ta Prom and The Elephant Terrace. As the day heats up, we lunch with a view of Sra Srang Lake and then return to your hotel by vehicle around 2pm.

Sunrise at Angkor Wat
The tour starts with a pickup from your hotel. The time will be advised when we confirm your booking. The van will take you through the busy streets around town right to the Angkor Archeological Park and the Angkor Wat temple where you will meet the rest of the group and your guide will pick out the perfect position to watch the dawn break. If the weather gods are with you, the sun will rise up behind the majestic spires of Angkor Wat and provide the most stunning of silhouettes. This is truly a profound experience.
Angkor Wat Walking Tour & Breakfast
As the crowds of tourists disperse, you will have Angkor to yourselves in the best temperature and light of the day. Your guide will take you through this ancient wonder to give you an overview of Angkor Wat after which you enjoy breakfast, just outside the temple area in peaceful surroundings.
Biking Angkor Archeological Park
The rest of the day is spent cycling the back trails through thick forest to ancient ruins, stopping at both iconic and lesser-known temples. Among others, we park our bikes at the many faces of Bayon and the jungle swallowed Ta Prohm, both must-sees. Enjoy pedaling through the mysterious jungle surrounding the temples before we take lunch by the small reservoir called Sra Srang. As the day heats up, we drive back to town and to your hotel. You can expect to arrive back around 2pm.
Please note:Appropriate dress (knees and shoulders fully covered) is compulsory for entry into certain sections of Angkor Wat, and should also be observed throughout all temple areas for reasons of cultural sensitivity.
