On this first day, we will be having welcome drinks at the hotel where you will meet the crew and your fellow riders while receiving a full briefing of the ride ahead. They will tell you everything you need to know about Cambodia motorbike travel.
You’ll also have plenty of time to explore the ancient temples of Angkor – the most important archaeological sites in Southeast Asia. Afterwards, we’ll all head out to dinner at an authentic Khmer restaurant to get a true taste of Cambodian flavor.
Siem Reap - Battambang
185km - 6h of riding
Unlike other Cambodia motorbike tours, we will quickly leave the city behind, we’ll head west towards the Thai border. We’ll ride a variety of dirt roads and winding trails as we ride past lakes and alongside rivers. We’ll stop for lunch besides a large reservoir before continuing to the old French colonial town of Battambang. You’ll even have the chance to sample some of the local rice paddy rats at one of the roadside BBQs! How does rat sound to you? We hear it taste just like chicken!
Battambang - Osaom
220km - 7h of riding
Today you will experience real Cambodia motorbike travel! A short cruise out of Battambang is Phnom Sampeau – a small mountain which witnessed major atrocities committed by the Khmer Rouge. We’ll visit the gruesome Killing Caves and see the guns that the Vietnamese used to keep the Khmer Rouge at bay after they’d taken hold of the mountain.
We’ve got some awesome trail riding today on our Cambodia motorbike adventures, from fast paced dirt roads, muddy sections in “sticky land”, river crossings and winding dirt roads that climb up in the Cardamom Mountains which provide breathtaking views across the hills. We’ll finish up the day by crossing a lake on a small wooden boat before arriving at a beautiful homestay style lodge, surrounded by lakes and jungle. There is no better way to end the day than cooling off by jumping in the lake behind our lodge for a swim.
Osaom - Koh Kong
115km - 6h of riding
Tonight’s destination is Koh Kong – a riverside town near the Thai border. We’ll ride a fun dirt road in the morning that sweeps through the hills and across the forests. We then will branch off into thick jungle for some epic singletrack riding, stream crossings and hilly sections. After the jungle section, our Cambodia motorbike tours continue as we ride a beautiful dirt and concrete road through the mountains on the way down to Koh Kong while visiting a couple of waterfalls along the way.
After a few days of high-intensity riding, you’ll be ready for a little rest from our Cambodia motorbike adventures. Today is packed with great options. We can sunbathe on a beach, visit Koh Kong island, kayak through mangrove forests or relax at a beautiful riverside restaurant where we can borrow their kayaks and paddle out on the river and watch the fireflies emerge as the sun goes down.
Koh Kong - Chiphat
130km - 6h of riding
Our best of the best Cambodia motorbike tours has two choices for you today: the easy road and the hard road. The harder route tackles the ‘old smugglers trail’ which is filled with steep and tricky rocky hills, lots of quirky bridges, river crossings, bamboo jungle and some really fun singletrack trails.
The easy route sticks to the beautiful smooth roads that wind through the mountains where you can visit the impressive Tatai waterfall along the way. Whatever option you choose, there is no better way to experience Cambodia motorbike travel. In the late afternoon we will take cold beers down to the river for a little swim and relaxation.
Chiphat - Sihanoukville
160km - 7h of riding
We’ll cross the river out of Chiphat on small wooden boats in the morning and ride the dirt roads through the hills of sugarcane. After this, we then have some fun open sandy trails that lead into the jungle. We will have lunch at Kbal Chay waterfall before continuing onwards to jungle trails down to Sihanoukville where we’ll finish our Cambodia motorbike adventures with sunset beers on the beach!
