Away from the tuk tuks, the motorbikes, the massages, the pizza and the bars, you will find a truly unique experience. It's as simple as going on a pedal through the Mekong Islands that lie just north of Phnom Penh. Return to the city with a new view on Phnom Penh and on Cambodia. If you can ride a bike, then you will love this ride. The distance is approximately 25 kilometers on mainly flat tracks and small roads. With your guide, you will stop often to chat with the locals and learn a little about what everyone is up to. There are lots of snack and water stops as well as some great river ferry crossings. Meet at the Areiksart Ferry Port at 7:45am with your camera, sunscreen and some comfortable clothing. You can find our shop location using the map below. After a short safety briefing and bike fitting, we'll make our way to the ferry departure point to begin our cycling adventure. We'll cross the river by ferry boat, making our way towards the north of Phnom Penh and the Silk Islands. Back on land, we enjoy a scenic and relaxing 20-25km ride through Cham Muslim communities on quiet back roads. The leisurely cycling is interspersed with some additional short ferry rides to reach the Mekong Islands and navigate among them. On the islands, we'll cycle through orchards and market gardens, enjoying the peaceful farmland and learning about the lives of the people who call the Silk Islands home. Along the way, we’ll park our bikes for some interesting cultural stops as we check out traditional village industries and get a better sense of authentic Cambodian life on these islands. This specially-crafted cycling route is sure to provide an informative and memorable cultural experience that will leave you with wonderful memories of Phnom Penh. A delicious local lunch of authentic regional Khmer food is included in the bike tour along with fresh fruit and water provided through the journey. After making our way back from the islands by ferry, you can expect to return to Phnom Penh around 12:30pm.
