Being a small, less developed country with most of its population living in the countryside you will feel like you’re riding inside a museum. The main riding experience is passing by the endless villages and rice paddies. At each stop you will very soon be approached by curious locals. Cambodia offers a wealth of gravel roads. Even if you don’t have any off-road riding experience, you will appreciate riding some of the easier ones and experience the “real rural Cambodia”. For the more adventurous, let us know and we will take you there….
Cambodia is a small country, but it has much to offer. Among the main reasons to visit is the incredible amount of history and culture. Also memorable is the amazing nature, ranging from the gorgeous National Parks to the coastline and islands.
Cambodia is the successor state to the mighty Khmer empire which, during the Angkorian period, ruled much of what is now Laos, Thailand, and Vietnam. The remains of this empire can be seen at the fabled temples of Angkor, monuments unrivalled in scale and grandeur in Southeast Asia. The travellers’ first glimpse of Angkor Wat, the ultimate expression of Khmer genius, is sublime and matched by only a few select spots on earth, such as Machu Picchu or Petra.
The Khmers have been to hell and back, struggling through years of bloodshed, poverty, and political instability. But they are working hard to prevail, relying on their seemingly unbreakable spirit and infectious optimism. No visitor comes away without a measure of admiration and affection for the inhabitants of this enigmatic kingdom. A school visit where we donate needed supplies is a humbling, forever lasting experience.
Cambodian or Khmer food is typically made with fresh ingredients and is a medley of flavors. As rice is considered a staple, it is served with most meals in Cambodia. Unlike Thai cuisine, which is distinctly spicy, the food in Cambodia is rather mild and has a lot of pickled and tangy flavors. Our experienced local guides will take you through a gastronomic journey. We use small charming boutique hotels when out in the countryside and good international standard hotels when in the big cities. All with leisure facilities.
