Destinations for Cambodia Cycling Tours
In Phnom Penh
This must-visiting place is well-known for its classic Khmer architecture. Under the gilding roofs is the Throne Hall having a 59-meters top where faces of Saint are carved into. Was formerly home to the Royal family, the palace is sparkling with gold-colored chairs, tables, decorations, and gilded statues. Surround by the lush green garden, the Royal Palace shines like a jewel of the city.
A short ride from the Royal Palace is the Silver Pagoda. As the name tells all, the Silver Pagoda has a twinkling overlook by being covered with five tons of high-quality silver. This pagoda is one of few places which succeed in protecting ancient artifacts and items through the destruction of the Khmer Rouge empire. The main attraction is the crystal Emerald Buddha with a gentle smile sitting on the gilded pedestal. Walk inside, the golden Buddha statue is breathtaking adorning over 2000 beautiful sparkling diamonds.
Toul Sleng Genocide Museum
Your Cambodia Cycling tours can be more interesting and a little thrilling with a visit to Toul Sleng Genocide Museum. This high school is turned into a prison and a torture center during the period of the Khmer Rouge. By this time, nearly 20,000 prisoners of different ages and sexes including men, women, and even children were bloody tortured and then killed. Nearby, Choeung Ek was formerly the killing field where the Khmer Rouge purged an average of 100 people per day. Nowadays, Toul Sleng becomes a museum that served as eloquent proof of the cruel crimes of the Pol Pot government.
In Siem Reap
Angkor Wat Temple Complex
Any Cambodia Cycling Tour can be perfect without a visit to the Angkor Wat Temple Complex. Without any dramatic effect, Angkor Wat is considered the most popular site in Cambodia showing in being listed in UNESCO World Heritage and printed on Cambodia's national flag. Angkor Wat is a complex of several temples with a unique architecture built by the skillful hands of the old Khmer. The most popular ones are Angkor Wat, Bayon, Ta Prohm, and Angkor Thom. The Angkor Wat provides a chance to explore the old Khmer culture through several images carved in the sandstone bas-reliefs revealing their daily life along with God. Nearby, the Bayon temple is famous for its design of several faces which are considered as the combination of the face of Buddha and King Jayavarman VII who ordered the building of this temple. Deep inside the tropical jungle is the mysterious Ta Prohm dedicated to the King’s mother. This temple has a natural decoration with huge trees growing out of the roofs protecting various valuable artifacts and jewels such as gold, pearls, and superior silks. Another highlight of the complex is Angkor Thom – the second home built for protecting the King against attack by enemies due to the 8-meters-height wall and an inviolable massive moat surrounding. The temple also has four faces carved into the sandstone surfaces similar to the Bayon Temple.
Phnom Kulen Mountain
Phnom Kulen is a holy land in Cambodia dedicated to the two main religions of this country including Hindus and Buddhists. People come here for its spectacular sights and pilgrimage. The fact that this mountain is the birthplace of the ancient Khmer Empire shows the important position in Cambodians and also brings plenty of valuable archaeological and historical meanings. This religious site attracts visitors for its over 1000 small special carvings under the water carved into the sandstone riverbed. Due to the legend that King Jayavarman II had bathed in the river, the water is considered holy water which carved the bed into solid stone. The river ends with a fresh pool under a wonderful waterfall. Take a dive into the cool water, or sit in a huge stone to relax after a Siem Reap Cycling Tour.
Thanks to the feature of the mangrove ecosystem, Siem Reap has many floating villages. Two of the most popular ones are the Kampong Phluk and Kampong Khleang. Kampong Phluk is not far from the city with lines after lines of stilted houses. The business of almost all villagers is a fishery with the main products being fish and shrimp in the rainy season and farming in the dry season. The other village is Kampong Khleang. It is the furthest one when transferring from Siem Reap, but don’t hesitate, visiting here can be the most wonderful experience in your Cambodia tours. The village is a combination of mangrove and land with stilted, floating houses and buildings. Hop on a tuk-tuk riding along the village to get a glimpse of local’s daily life. Then kayaking to explore the mangrove with the purest experience provided by local’s tourism service.
This seaside city is the leading beach resort in Cambodia sitting in the center of a beautiful idyllic peninsula jutting out from the warm water flow of the Thailand Gulf.
