Dress standards are conservative throughout Asia, especially outside major cities. To respect this and for your own comfort, we strongly recommend modest clothing. This means clothing that covers your shoulders and knees. Loose, lightweight, long clothing is both respectful and cool in the predominantly hot Asian climate. Comfortable shoes are a must. The Apsara Authority which manages the park reserves the right to refuse entry to certain areas of the site for guests who wear clothing which is considered immodest. No smoking, drinking alcohol, or touching the carvings is permitted in and around the temples.
Travellers must be able to bicycle and also be 12 years of age or older. Children below the age of 12 are not permitted on this day tour in Siem Reap. There is no separate child price.
If you are happy with the services provided a tip - though not compulsory - is appropriate. While it may not be customary to you, it is of great significance to the people who will take care of you during your travels, inspires excellent service, and is an entrenched feature of the tourism industry across many Urban Adventures destinations.
On this biking tour in Siem Reap we ride through the countryside to visit to the Rolous group of temples. The cycle is mainly on dirt tracks. On the way we pass small villages with lots of friendly children. Stop to watch seasonal activities like rice planting and harvesting, and try local snacks. Or try your hand at traditional games like Khmer football (sai).
Our day tour in Siem Rea will explore the Rolous Group of temples which represent the remains of the first major capital of the Khmer empire, and are the earliest site of the 600 year Angkor period that is open to visitors. The three temples in the site are: Bakong, Lolei, and Preah Ko. Bakong was constructed in 881 and is the principle temple in the Rolous group. Lolei is a four towered temple built in the centre of what is now a dry water reservoir.
Visit a not-for-profit organization which supports disadvantaged youth in the area and teaches them the traditional art of shadow-puppet making (from leather), and watch a shadow puppet show.
Eat a delicious Khmer lunch and have a rest in a hammock before cycling back to Siem Reap. Total distance on this biking tour in Siem Reap approximately 35 - 40 km.
