This ride exposes a truly rural Cambodia, illustrated by mango orchards, corn fields, cassava plantations, peanut farms, and, of course, rice paddies. There are a few hills on the way, but the general trend is a downward slope heading into the Tonle Sap basin.

When we get closer to Battambang, the mountains begin to give way to this endless plain. Stop for lunch at Wat Phnom Sampeau, then visit the temple at the top of this limestone outcrop. Here, you will have a fantastic view over the typical landscape of paddy fields and sugar palm trees. The ride finally reaches Battambang, Cambodia’s second city.

After breakfast, meet with the guides and prepare for the journey through the jungles of Angkor.

Begin with a visit to the jungle-entwined temple of Ta Prohm Temple. This 12th century temple is unique in that it has been left largely as it was found: overgrown by jungle, trees and vines, with many parts of the temple crumbling to the ground.

Continue from Ta Prohm to the ancient city of Angkor Thom, the last capital and most enduring of the Great Khmer Empire under the reign of Jayavarman VII. The city is famous for its eight-meter-high wall drawing a perfect square around its perimeter and for its grand entrance gate.

Pass through the imposing South Gate, an impressive stone gate carved with elephants and four giant faces then cycle to the inspirational Bayon Temple which is located at the heart of Angkor Thom. This 12th century masterpiece is known for its fifty-four face-carved towers and its Terrace of the Elephants and Terrace of the Leper King. It would be great experience to keep walking through the maze and observing their wonderful, fabulous, intricate sculptures.

The final visit of the day will be the famous Angkor Wat, built in the 12th century to represent Mount Meru, the home of the gods. Inside the temple, the walls are covered with stone carvings and bas-reliefs depicting Hindu mythology. There are also more than 2,000 Aspara dancers decorating the walls of the temple. Construction of this national icon is thought to have taken around thirty years of intensive labor to complete.
