New friends, new experiences while in Angkor
From city center, you will cycle some impressive kilometers to Kbal Spean, one of the most fantastic and elaborate spectacle among Angkor complex. Taking about 45 minutes, the ride seems long but really smooth and straight to go actually. As passing by various local dorms, schools and through the picturesque green fields, you will have a chance to fully indulge in the tranquil beauty of this land.
- The weather here is hot, intense and sometimes unpredictable so breezy outfits (including extra clothes), raincoat, extra water bottles, comfortable shoes and sunglasses should be the must-have items on your biking bucket list.
- If you feel unwell at any time during the trip, a support car will drive you straight to the next destinations.
AN UNCHARTED WORLD UPHILL
After the promenade around Angkor Wat and its ravishing temple ruins that bring up-close memories upon the Khmer architecture and ancient buildings, you will detour to “river of a thousand lingas”, a discrete and timeless silhouette which belongs to the former world, the long-lost memories upon a forgotten civilization. Joining a 30-minute hike uphill from Kbal Spean, you will take a peek into the unrevealed pages of Cambodian history, where the forgone legends and mythical stories are carved on mysterious rocks along the riverbed, bathing the so-called the “holy water” from nearby waterfall. Some said that the lingas represent primitive traits from the sacred Gods, some believed they hold a symbolic meanings to ancient people’s wishes for a hallowed and pure life based on culture aspects.
