ITINERARY

Soksabike tour - Half Day

Fuel up with a good breakfast, grab two wheels, and begin the Battambang bike tour. This half day cycle is arranged by Soksabike, a social enterprise aimed at preserving Khmer traditions through tourism activities. The ride around Battambang covers 22 km over mostly flat roads.

After adjusting the bikes, head out of town and into the countryside. The ride is focused on showing the ‘real’ Cambodia so there will be plenty of chances to stop and see how the local people live.

Pass through rural communities and see the process of creating local items such as rice paper, grolan (sticky rice steamed in bamboo), and prahoc (pungent Cambodian fish paste). Interact with the villagers and learn about their lives while watching them make these treats.

Between the villages, cycle through Battambang’s lovely countryside. The scenery is filled with vibrant rice paddies and orchards growing oranges and other fruits. Tucked amid the bucolic setting is Wat Samraong Knong, a charming Buddhist temple built in 1907 in a fusion of French colonial and Khmer architectural styles. Sadly, the temple functioned as an interrogation facility during the Khmer Rouge era: a memorial for the more than 10,000 victims has been built on site.

Around 12.30 return to town and say farewell to the biking guide.
