Islands of the Mekong Cycling Tour (Small Group Tour)
- Duration: 4 Hours (approx.)
- Location: Siem Reap, Siem Reap
- Product code: GHAPKP
Who would have thought, that only 5km from the heart of Cambodia's capital city, there is an island oasis where one can take a bike ride at a gentle pace and discover true rural Cambodia.
These islands, created by the flows of the Mekong River, are isolated by the lack of bridges, but ferry connections provide easy access for villagers who use the fertile soil here to grow fruit and vegetables and then weave silk and cotton in between farming cycles.
The absence of most four wheeled traffic makes for a peaceful ride where you can almost forget that the hustle of a city is just nearby. The riding is flat and easily achievable for anyone who can ride a bike and we take care to ensure a high degree of safety, making this a truly family friendly experience.
