This mazing Cambodia Motorbike tour will bring tourists from Phnom Penh – capital of Kingdom of Cambodia to the ancient kingdom of Khmer named Angkor Watt in Siemreap. This circle of motorbike tour will allow you to experience Cambodia’s most famous attractions, the daily life of the locals on Tonle Sap
Destination: Phnom Penh Tonle Sap River Siem Riep Kompong Cham
You will be picked up from your hotel around 8am and driven to the Hog House in Takmao, approximately 12kms from the centre of Phnom Penh. We leave Takmao and ride our motorcycles back through Phnom Penh following the Tonle Sap River. 30 kms out of PhnomPenh, we cross the Tonle Sap River by ferry. We will make our way to the town of Kompong Thom where we will stop for lunch. After that, we keep riding to the town of Siem Reip. That night we’ll have a dinner at a Khmer restaurant for dinner and a few drinks. After dinner an optional few more drinks at a few of the bars around town, then overnight here.
DAY 2: ANGKOR WAT TEMPLES MOTORCYCLE TOURS – MOTORBIKE PACKAGE AROUND TEMPLES OF ANGKOR (B, D)
We will take a motorbike from our hotel to the Temples of Angkor at first light. Unfortunately only specially licensed bikes and cars are permitted inside the temple complex, we definitely do not qualify although we may be able to sneak in a back way after 5 pm if you desire. We will therefore decide whether to ride a motorbike taxi or car. Either way these costs are borne by HTC. That evening, after a swim at the pool we will enjoy a meal at the hotel. If you still have enough energy, your rest of the night is to enjoy the nightlife of Siem Riep.
DAY 3: ANGKOR WAT TEMPLES MOTORCYCLE TOURS – DAY WITH SEVERAL OPTIONS OF MOTORBIKE TOUR (B)
Day 3 is a day of two choices. You can ride a motorcycle back to the Temples or take a ride around Siem Riep to see the other sights of this, Cambodia’s most modern city. Perhaps there is even a third choice! A lazy day by the pool and maybe even a massage by the hotel’s in house massage service. The choice is yours.
We say goodbye to Siem Riep for the much more leisurely pace of Kompong Cham. Kompong Cham is a sleepy town on the banks of the Mekong River. We will leave Siem Riep after breakfast around 11am. We will have a lunch in Kompong Thom, and then keep riding to Kompong Cham. After we’ve check into our hotel and had a break, we’ll head for dinner and drinks at a Khmer restaurant across the Mekong River. A few beers at Joe’s Mekong Crossing or Simon’s Mekong Daze bars, and stay overnight here.
DAY 5: ANGKOR WAT TEMPLES MOTORCYCLE TOURS – MOTORBIKE PACKAGE BACK TO PHNOM PENH (B, L, AND D – A BBQ)
We meet for breakfast at Joe’s Mekong Crossing around 8 or 9am and after that at 10am checkout we head off again. We cross the Mekong and keep riding back to Phnom Penh. We take a ride through rubber plantations and rice fields to the town of Prey Veng where we stop for lunch. Afterwards, we make our journey to Neak Leoung. At Neak Leoung we cross the Mekong by Ferry and return Phnom Penh. We arrive back at the Hog House well before dark with a few beers, a swim, a barbeque, and stay overnight at your Phnom Penh Hotel.

Angkor Wat Temples Motorcycle tour Rating: 9.8 out of 10 based on 368 reviews.
* ACCOMMODATION: – We endeavour to select a combination of good quality hotels that reflect the character of the local area as well as being as centrally located as possible, all the while striving to keep the cost affordable.
– Your trip will stay in a range of hotels / guesthouses with standardized quality.
– Please be aware that some hotel rooms, especially those in major urban centres or older cities, may be smaller than what you are used to in other parts of the world. Standards and ratings may also be different to your home country.
– Rooms are en-suite and either twin- or triple-share, depending on what you have booked. If you are a solo traveller, you will always be sharing a room with someone of the same sex otherwise you can pay a supplement to possess a single room
– If you are traveling as a couple and would prefer to have a double bed, please officially request a double room with us. We never presume that two people traveling together are a couple, even if you share the same surname, unless informed otherwise.
* MEALS: – Your included meals are detailed in the ‘More Inclusions’ section of this document.
– Breakfasts are included every day in the hotel (except on the first morning). They are usually ‘continental breakfasts’, which are typical in most countries. A typical breakfast may consist of cereals with milk or yoghurt, bread, croissants, cold meats, cheese and a range of spreads, with fruit juice, tea or coffee to drink. It is rare to get a hot breakfast in Asia, though on some occasions there may be some hot food available as well. Included evening meals are in local restaurants or accommodation places, and are either two or three courses. In most cases table water is provided with the meals, and if you wish to purchase additional drinks you can do so at your own expense.
– If you have any dietary requirements we will make every effort to cater to your specific needs as long as you advise your travel agent when you book, or make note by email before you set out. But please be aware that although we will do everything in our power to arrange it, we cannot guarantee that every restaurant we use will be able to cater to all dietary needs, particularly in Asia. We also cannot cater for tastes or dislikes, as most of our included evening meals feature a set menu.
* Ten Tips to Survive Vietnam’s Traffic: + DON’T spend hours waiting to cross the street on foot: that constant tide of traffic won’t stop until late at night, so
+ DO as the Vietnamese do: take the plunge and inch slowly across. Observe the Miracle of the Red Sea, as the traffic parts like magic, flowing smoothly in front of you or behind, meeting up again on the other side.
+ DON’T make any sudden or unpredictable movements: freeze if you have to, but never lunge forward or backward towards the safety of the sidewalk. In fact, you can do just about anything, but do it with conviction!
+ DON’T forget, if you’re riding or driving, to look where you’re going – all the time: if you hit anything in front of you, then it’s your fault.
+ DO give way to any vehicle bigger and noisier than yours. Trucks and buses are particularly dangerous: often old, sometimes unsafe and usually all over the road.
+ DO watch out for unfamiliar obstacles: water buffaloes, rocks of various sizes, broken-down trucks…, people sitting in the road, missing bridges, girls in ao dai cycling five abreast, slow-moving mountains of farm produce, dog fights, impromptu football matches, piles of building materials – and almost no light on anything at night..
+ DON’T hesitate to take evasive action – even if this sometimes means leaving the tarmac or coming to a dead stop.
+ DO try to avoid getting involved in one of the all-too-frequent minor accidents that plague Vietnam’s roads (and the major ones as well, of course), but if you are unlucky,
+ DON’T lose your cool, in spite of the interference of the large and vocal crowd that may gather: try to settle things amicably and swiftly. Sometimes, paying a reasonable amount of money will save you a lot of hassle.
+ DO remember that the only rule is: you’re not allowed to bump into anybody… irrespective of what they did or should have done, or of what the road signs or traffic lights were telling them to do. Some people still seem to think that anything red means forward, comrade
* Tipping for guides & mechanic: Our crews never expect tips themselves and will not ask for any; that’s not what friends do! However, so if you are really satisfied with all of what they did for you, please don’t mind tipping them a bit with a normal norm of US$ 7 – US$ 10/person for a guide per day and US$ 3 – US$ 5/person for a mechanic per day. (just don’t forget Mum’s souvenir).
