This tour is all about the ancient temples of Angkor and of course riding a motorbike
The best bits about the Temple Raider Adventure
- Wandering around the temple ruins in Banteay Chhmar as though you were Indiana Jones
- Angkor Wat, it’s world famous for a reason and it’s amazing
- Getting away from the hustle and bustle of Phnom Penh and cruising across the Cambodian countryside
- Experiencing first hand the local Cambodian way of life
- The friendly Cambodian people, so very hospitable and kind. Waving, smiling and saying hello often is a certainty.
What to expect
- Cambodia can be hot. Not to worry, we provide sunscreen, unlimited bottled drinking water and stop regularly for rest breaks.
- The riding surface is mixed terrain, anything from bitumen to dirt roads. We ride at a safe pace, so you are able to take in the scenery – it’s not a race.
- This adventure is off the main tourist trail (except for Siem Reap); it’s all about having an authentic Cambodian experience.
